Hanover Wins a Rosie

May 21, 2012 | Comment

I did not get a chance to see Hanover High School’s production of “The Who’s Tommy” this year because I was working backstage at the Hanover Little Theatre that weekend. I always regret when I can’t get out to see the high school plays because I know how much work goes into the shows, and I know the quality of talent in the area.

At The Rosie’s last night – York County’s scholastic version of the Tony Awards – that was confirmed as Hanover won Most Creative or Original Performance at the sixth annual competition.

Congratulations to all the students in the production as well as the adults who make it happen. As the newspapers report on budget cuts affecting extracurricular activities in the York City schools, we all need to take some time to appreciate the sacrifices people make to give students the opportunity to act, sing, dance, play musical instruments and participate in their favorite sport.

Because I benefited from my involvement in wrestling and have seen so many students enrich their lives through athletics and the arts, I bristle when I hear people complain about paying for these activities. The money spent truly represents a small investment in the character development and life lessons for the students involved.
