Just in time for opening night, the Chicago Tribune Local runs a feature on the Glencoe Junior High Project’s production of SHREK: THE MUSICAL:
Shrek the Musical” opens Thursday, Feb. 5, at Glencoe Central School and audiences can thank the Glencoe Junior High Project, which presents the annual show.
Adam Busch of Deerfield directs 47 actors and 21 crew members featuring Glencoe sixth- through eighth-graders in a fairy tale production based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks film.
“Everybody has been working really hard the last couple of months,” Busch said. “It’s about fairy tale characters and learning to accept who you are and loving that.”
“Shrek the Musical supports the philosophy of our SEL curriculum, which is social emotional learning,” said Stacy Pritsker, a parent and show producer. “The Glencoe Junior High Project is based on that exact same premise, be who you are, find your inner self, embrace your differences and be self confident.”

Sun Times reporter, Karie Angell Luc, does a great job capturing some of the wackiness of the GJHP’s production of LUCKY STIFF. Among the highlights:
Gabe Klewin, 12, a sixth-grader plays the cool and cold body of Tony Hendon, did emerge from his wheelchair during a song.
So Gabe, do you have a speaking part?
The deceased Tony shook his head no. So much for lively conversation, but that didn’t stop [Director Adam] Busch from speaking.
“Come see ‘Lucky Stiff’ at Misner Auditorium this coming Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday!,” Busch said. “These guys and the rest of the cast have worked their butt off to do an amazing, high quality show, sure to entertain and make you laugh.”
