Galen’s ‘Hairspray’ 2018, what a show! Not only was it the final performance out of four shows on Saturday 2nd June, but it was also the final show for Galen’s amazing set designer, Paul Walker who is retiring after 35 years. Comments from students, parents, staff and community members about this year’s production have all been glowing, some even commenting that it’s the most polished school production they have ever seen. “I experience a great sense of joy seeing students come alive, work together and form new friendships. I cherish seeing students try something new and thrive,” stated Galen teacher and production director Julie Nolan.
Well done to all students involved in Hairpsray 2018, you were all truly outstanding. From those working behind the scenes to students bringing Baltimore 1962 to life on-stage, what a sensational group of young people! This of course wouldn’t be possible without the hard-work and dedication of the staff who organize Galen’s productions and ‘lead the way’ in their many and varied roles and responsibilities. Well done everyone!
