‘This Will Be Our Year’, an original musical, was a concept created by the artistic team at CNS High School, with the title drawing inspiration from the 1968 song, ‘This Will Be Our Year’ (The Zombies). With a book written by Kimberly Panek-Edwards and musical arrangements by Caryn Patterson of the great songs of the 60’s and 70’s, the musical focuses on a typical senior year, in an effort to give back to the students the year that they lost last year, in a creative way. The new musical touches on situations and events that can happen throughout a student’s senior year, from falling in love, gossiping, the loom of high standards, to divorce and heartbreak, along with the fun of promposals, the prom, and the culmination of graduation. The musical provides a tale that states that experiences and situations from high school will shape us into the people we will become. Click here for more information on our original story!
