Showstopping performances

November 29, 2022

Back-to-back performances by Cheshire Academy musicians and thespians ushered the CA community to Thanksgiving recess, as families, students, faculty, and staff gathered on campus for the annual fall play and fall concert.

A gender-bending, patriarchy-smashing, comedic take on the classic tale of Robin Hood, “Marian, or the True Tale of Robin Hood” was selected as this year’s fall play. Lead roles included Millie Lanni 23 as Robin/Marian, Jackson Rafferty ’23 as Little John, Joseph Auchterlonie ’24 as Prince John, Gwen Gersick-Seward ’25 as Alanna, and Adia Wolfe ’25 as Will Scarlett. Student direction for the play was led by Kamden Denomme ’23 and Kai Schwartz ’23. A great job by all thespians and those working behind the scenes!

CA students, parents, families, faculty, and staff were serenaded by musical performances put on by the many CA bands and groups during the annual Fall Concert, held in Richardson Lecture Hall. The CA Jazzz Band, Percussion Ensemble, Guitar Ensemble, 1794s a cappella group, Rock Band, Chorus, and Chamber Orchestra wowed the audience with renditions of “Ain’t No Sunshine,” “Blue Tango,” “Close Your Eyes and Dream,” and much more.
