The Cheese Stands Alone' in Marcellus

A talented array of colorful characters, eccentric farm animals and delectable cheeses from around the world filled the stage as Janet Kringer's third grade class and Dean Kloss' first grade class staged the musical comedy play "The Cheese Stands Alone."

Kringer and Kloss directed this delightful music and dance production which focused on the concept of standing up for what you believe in. Featured performers included Nick Roseboom and Shane Manthey on "It's the Cheese," Jake Sheridan on "All Alone," and Jim Farrell, Emma Hutchings, Shannon Linn, Daniel Balman, Megan Rynkiewicz, Taylor Germain, Tristan Parlin, and Tyler Chjernoff on "Hot Time in Cheese Town." The play also spotlighted the theatrical debut of K.C. Heffernan Principal Gary Bissaillon who acted out his part as he was guided by fellow "telegram boy" Donovan Cox.
