“We are so blessed to be part of this global event. Just to think that our drama club in Espanola will be performing to a potential worldwide audience is amazing. We’re very excited, nervous, and proud to be able to showcase our talents on this stage,” said Bourcier.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for our students to be part of such a monumental event. I especially appreciate the hard work and dedication of Ms. Bourcier, Ms. Donnelly and Ms. Houle in organizing our performance. The students involved have also been very dedicated in their preparations. I am very proud of everyone and wish them all the best next Saturday,” said Sacred Heart Principal, Syndy Withers.
