Into the Mirror

Journey middle school and EMCS combine forces for theatrical production

The students at Journey middle school and Edward Milne community school (EMCS) have put together a musical called Into the Mirror, which will be presented at the EMCS theatre from June 4 through to June 6.

This show is a part of an annual assignment, a “Final Project,” that has been a collaborative effort between the two schools since 2005.

Into the Mirror engages almost 200 students. According to director Jill Fader from Journey middle school, there will be about 80 students onstage and the rest behind the scenes.

The cast comes from Journey middle school, and EMCS (Junior and Senior Musical Theatre who also wrote the play). The technicians behind the scenes are all from EMCS, the 3D Art class provided all the props, and the videos were provided by (you guessed it) the Video class.

In addition to the show itself, the school foyer will feature students’ artwork along with features from the woodwork class.

The show opens on Thursday, June 4 with a gala event that includes appetizers served compliments of the EMCS Culinary Arts program. Tickets for this night will be sold only at EMCS, and be prepared for this event to sell out.

“We usually sell out on Friday,” said Fader. The appetizers, she promises, will be “tantalizingly delicious.”

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased from Journey, EMCS or Shoppers Drug Mart. Tickets for the Gala Event (June 4) can only be purchased from EMCS. The funds raised will go right back into the Journey and EMCS Musical Theatre programs.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7.

 

At the time of publication, the strike was not affecting the performance of the show. However, we strongly recommend you monitor the situation as changes seem to be happening daily.
