C-NS High School Presents "This Will Be Our Year", an Original Musical – livestreamed on April 23 and 24 via YouTube

Cicero-North Syracuse High School is pleased to announce their spring musical, ‘This Will Be Our Year’.  Join us as we give back a year to the high school students in a fun way! The production takes place on Friday, April 23 and Saturday, April 24 at 7:00 pm, and will be live streamed via YouTube.
 
‘This Will Be Our Year’, an original musical, was a concept created by the artistic team at CNS High School, with the title drawing inspiration from the 1968 song, ‘This Will Be Our Year’ (The Zombies). With a book written by Kimberly Panek-Edwards and musical arrangements by Caryn Patterson of the great songs of the 60’s and 70’s, the musical focuses on a typical senior year, in an effort to give back to the students the year that they lost last year, in a creative way. The new musical touches on situations and events that can happen throughout a student’s senior year, from falling in love, gossiping, the loom of high standards, to divorce and heartbreak, along with the fun of promposals, the prom, and the culmination of graduation. The musical provides a tale that states that experiences and situations from high school will shape us into the people we will become.
 
The C-NS musical is being directed by the Syracuse High School Student Theater award-winning team of Kimberly Panek-Edwards (Director), Caryn Patterson (Music Director), and Lisa Stuart (Choreographer). Haley Stuart is assistant to the choreographer, Rich Greninger is in charge of set construction, John Nadler is the tech director, and Renee Frontale is the producer for ‘This Will Be Our Year’.

DONATE NOW!
Students in last year’s CNS production of ‘Tuck Everlasting’ were directly affected by the onset of the pandemic when the show was shut down after its opening night performance, leading to a significant loss of money for the theater department. Although we will not be charging a ticket price for our production of ‘This Will Be Our Year’, donations will be gratefully accepted to help offset our losses from 2020 and help the students continue to produce outstanding future shows at C-NS.
