  • See Our MS, US Actors in ZACH Theatre’s “A Christmas Carol”

    Three St. Andrew’s Middle Schoolers—Laney Goodrum '22, Cecile McWilliams '22, and Luke Weaver '22—and two Upper Schoolers—Georgia Orchid '21 and Charlie Welland '21—are showing serious stamina, performing in seven shows a week for ZACH Theatre’s production of “A Christmas Carol” now through December 31. The dual demands of school and an acting company have not deterred our students from this opportunity. Luke Weaver '22 says, "A Christmas Carol has been such an exciting experience and I have learned how to manage my time, and what it is like to be a professional actor.  My teachers have been very supportive by working with me on my deadlines and helping me manage my school work.  I am so excited to have them come to the show and see this great production!”
