The Musical Production classes have been hard at work over the past couple of months for the annual school musical, Shrek The Musical Jr., under the direction of Ms. Daubenspeck.

The cast and the crew have been practicing and building props and sets for the musical during class times and sometimes during the evenings.

Karsen Dixon has been performing in school musicals since his freshman year and plays donkey in this year’s production. “I’m really excited for this play. It’s going to be really fun, and everyone should be there to watch,” said Karsen.

Ms. Daubenspeck has put on many great musicals in her sixteen years at ECHS, so this musical is sure to be no different. “Ms. D” is also a volunteer board member at the Elk City Red Carpet Community Theater.
