A Spirited Playlist

A Spirited Playlist

Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School’s fifth-grade Select Chorus brought to life a comical tale of a lost musical playlist and the chaos that ensued during this year’s winter school musical, “Santa’s Holiday Playlist,” written by John Jacobson and Roger Emerson.

Under the direction of music teacher Craig B. Knapp, the students rehearsed for weeks to perfect their musical, acting and singing talents before opening night and two subsequent daytime performances for their peers. The show followed the lives of those at the North Pole and how they worked to help Santa cope with a missing list of his favorite classic holiday tunes. From dancing wooden soldiers to a snowflake that wanted to become the next Broadway star, the musical was funny, heartwarming and highly entertaining for all audiences.
