Students from both Dalton Intermediate School and Radford High School make up the cast and crew for this animated show.

The caring and understanding Mother Abbess is played by Madailein Adams, junior, and the quick tongued Sister Berthe is played by Eliott Van Noy, senior.
The sweet, concerned Sister Margaretta is played by Abby Ridpath. You will be rolling in the aisles as Max Detwieler makes his appearance on the stage as Adri Newman, junior, captures the perfect comedic timing that makes Max one of the most fun characters in the show.
You will be touched by the sweetness of the young love building between Liesl and Rolf, played by Grant McDonell, sophomore.
The sophistication of Elsa, played by Riley Bloomer, sophomore, will delight audiences as well. The actors and actresses are supported by an amazing crew from stage manager McKenzie Papas, junior, to the sound and lighting effects handled by eighth grader Zoe Tapp and freshman Amber Duncan.
There are many more students working diligently on the set crew and acting as extras in various scenes that help keep the show running smoothly.
