We tend to put ourselves in boxes - sports kids, art kids, theater kids. In this episode, we throw that notion out as we explore all the aspects of what goes into a big production like a spring musical. At least at South Milwaukee, the spring musical is a near-total community effort. Career and Tech students build the sets and run the sound, art students paint the sets, and the cast is made up of students from all walks of life. The pit musicians come from the student body, but also from the staff and community. The musical is applied learning, builds skills for life, and is presented to the community as an example of what a free, public education can do.
