Brasher Falls-Winthrop, NY, Mar 07, 2013 — The spring musical season kicks off this weekend at a number of high schools in the North Country. It's a busy time back stage and on stage with final rehearsals amid wet paint.
In one school district the students are having -- literally -- a sweet time. The musical, Willy Wonka, opens Friday night at St. Lawrence Central High School in Brasher Falls. Special effects include airborne actors and chocolate-scented fog. Even though most schools are struggling with being able to afford extracurricular activities, like music and theater, that hasn't dampened the enthusiasm among students, staff and parents. Todd Moe stopped by the final dress rehearsal for Willy Wonka Wednesday afternoon in Brasher Falls and found lots of school spirit.
