Former director praises new leadership
When an educator turns over a program after 40 years in the profession and 15 years at the school from which they retire, it’s somewhat like giving up your children or, at the very least, placing them in the hands of a stranger.
Certainly, I could not have wished for a better school than Floyd Central High School to end my teaching and directing career and I couldn’t have enjoyed a better community, more dedicated parents, volunteers, administrators, faculty and wonderful kids during that time.
Turning over our rather daunting program to a young theatre educator straight out of college could well have been a precarious move, but I could not be more pleased with the level of excellence that the theatre program at Floyd Central has continued to display throughout the year.
I attended all productions this year and have been duly impressed with each one. From “The Miracle Worker,” to “Music Man,” to the yearly madrigal celebration, to an outstanding and innovation production of “Godspell,” to the stellar production of “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” the directors, choreographers, musicians, designers, costumers, volunteers and, of course, the amazing technical theatre students and actors and actresses continue to pour their hearts into their work.
My sincere congratulations to Mr. Robbie Steiner during his first year as director of theatre arts at Floyd Central and all involved in maintaining a very special connection with the arts at Floyd Central.
