It is mid-April and the pace has been furious these past few weeks as the 7th and 8th grades at the Grammar School have been preparing for their annual musical. For this year of celebration, highlighting the school’s fiftieth anniversary, the school play is Once on This Island, a one-act musical with a book and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and music by Stephen Flaherty. (The award-winning duo behind such acclaimed shows as Ragtime and Seussical, as well as the animated feature film Anastasia.) None other than Nathaniel played one of the leads and he even sang a beautiful solo.
