Chaparral presented our spring show, The FORCE on Ice -- a Star Wars extravaganza, on May 20 & 21. Thank you to the record-breaking crowd who joined us in that galaxy far, far away! Thank you, cast members, for your hard work, 4:30 a.m. rehearsals, and professional-qualify performances. Thanks to the countless volunteers and parents who spent many hours creating our Star Wars universe, including Harold Jang and Mandoo Entertainment for providing professional lighting; Ben Kazda for spotlights; Alberto Quinones and Stephanie Schmid for scenery, props, pod racers (and many sleepless nights!), and too many others to list who jumped in to assist at the drop of a hat, and whose "what can I do to help" was music to our ears. Thanks to Angie Vaught and the Chaparral staff for trusting us again to produce such a show. Thanks to our coaches who choreographed and performed in the show. And a very special thanks to our director, Jessica Smith, for your vision, dedication, and awakening the Force in us all!
