Tickets are $3 for students, $5 for adults. Tickets may be purchased at the door.

The GMUHS students, faculty and staff worked together to produce this performance. Amy Jones and her class helped with the set design and artwork, Christa Valente and her class with the program, and Kristine LeFevre with costume creation and design.
