Staff includes Jon Surratt, Patrick Butler, Susan Winfree and Alex Carson, with assistance from music designer Craig Fitzpatrick, costuming from Creative Costuming Inc. and set design from Digital Performance Gear. A special thanks to the Ardrey Kell Band Booster program for supporting all of the winter programs at our school.
