With auditions over and parts assigned, members of the district’s middle school theater group were deep into rehearsals Monday for their June production of “Moana Jr.”

For the first time, the three middle schools have joined together to stage a musical. Cast and crew are from North Albany Middle School, Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School and William S. Hackett Middle School, and they rehearse twice a week at Hackett.

Check out some Facebook photos from the rehearsal. (You don't need a Facebook account to see the pictures linked in the highlighted text. A window may appear that says, "To see more from Albany City Schools on Facebook, log on or create an account,” but you can dismiss it by clicking “not now.”)

Hackett music teacher Francesca Delsignore is director and Albany High School music teacher Jeanette Shippey is assistant director. All three performances will be held at Hackett as follows:

  • Friday, June 3 at 7 p.m. (featuring the Moana who is a Hackett student)
  • Saturday, June 4 at 2 p.m. (featuring the Moana who is North Albany student)
  • Saturday, June 4 at 4:30 p.m. (featuring the Moana who is a Myers student)
