Lift off: Musicals coming to high school stages throughout McHenry County

From 'Peter Pan' to 'Cinderella' to 'Our Town,' your guide to the area's offerings

At Crystal Lake South, they’re learning to fly and sword-fight. Marian Central’s students will see impossible dreams come true. And at Woodstock North, they’ll travel back to the early 1900s.

It’s high school musical time in McHenry County as students at the schools above, along with others throughout the area, bring their talents to area stages. They put in countless hours of rehearsal time through months of preparation to put on the best show they can.

It’s hard work on and off the stage, but it’s meaningful work they usually don’t forget, say those involved.
