Under the direction of Tony Ravinsky, the Cornwall Central High School Music Department and Drama Club presented Disney’s Beauty and the Beast this past spring.
“I can’t believe the growth of this family over a short four months,” Ravinsky explained. “When a director starts to work on any production, he has a vision of what could be. Seeing that vision come to life through the tireless work of this dedicated and talented staff, cast, and crew is very humbling. Early on someone would ask, ‘How is this going to happen?’ and my answer was always, ‘Disney Magic, let’s move on.’ Since that time, however, the answer has become “CCHS Drama Magic!’ I could not be prouder of all the 100 plus student members involved. I highly support all aspects of educational theater; from our student stage crew, carpenters, artists, and technicians, to the pit orchestra and cast. These special people are the reasons I do what I do, and they are the ones who created it all.”
This year’s performances were dedicated to the district’s four retiring music teachers. Vic Esposito, Steve Kessler, Lisa Moriarty, and Karen Snider.
