Magic Upon A Mountain

Roy C. Ketcham High School, May 1978


Kevin's Magic Upon A Mountain, an original high school musical-magical written and produced by students in May of 1978 at Roy C. Ketcham High School, Wappingers Falls, New York. The production involved about 30 students and only one teacher (shown in the red tie in the last picture), who played the part of the owner of the "Cabaret of Magic" nightclub at a ski resort. The script and music was original and the songs (at least 8) and music were composed by fellow student and friend, Linda (age 17).
