FRAMINGHAM – Framingham has a long, and award-winning history of producing high school and middle school theatre. And with the opening of the new Fuller Middle School in September, the tradition will continue.
On Friday, October 1, the first-ever production will be held at the Chris Walsh Performing Arts Center at Fuller Middle School.
Walsh served as a state representative for Framingham from 2011, until his death at age 66 in May of 2018.
In addition to the dedication ceremony, the Framingham Public School District is planning a musical revue to christen the stage, said Framingham K-12 Fine and Performing Arts Director Donna Wresinski.
Superintendent of Schools Bob Tremblay has already signed on to perform.
“Steve and Patrick Greeley, close family friends of the Walsh family will perform, and we are looking for alumni from either Framingham South or Fuller Middle school music and theatre productions who might like to be involved,” said Wresinski.
An opening and closing number is being planned for anyone who would like to be involved, said Wresinski, who added she is open to including other performances from the Fuller history, if there is interest.
Wresinski is directing the event, with Ethan Lobenstine, Framingham High choral director,providing musical direction.
If you are an alumni and interested in participating please email Wresinski at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include your name, the years you attended the school, and whether you would like to perform a song from a concert or musical during your time there or be included in the opening and closing numbers.
“Our time for the event is limited, but we would love to include anyone who is interested,” said Wresinski.
