Going out youngsters, coming back stars

After sold out shows on Saturday and Sunday, “42nd Street” continues with its second weekend.

42nd Street, starring juniors Daryl Hale, Toshaan Arora, and sophomores Magnus Bohls and Helena Laing, is described by director Joshua Denning as “McCallum’s most extravagant show yet.” Denning also told the company that “most high schools do not do this show because of how big and difficult it is to put on.”  Inspired by the book written by Bradford Ropes, 42nd Street includes many classic musical theatre melodies, performed live on stage by McCallum’s company of more than 120 students including cast, crew and orchestra. The show opened Feb. 1 and will close on Sunday Feb. 10 after two weekends of performances. Saturday and Sunday of the first weekend sold out, and the second weekend looks to be following that trend.
