Jagger is the only staff member involved in the production, and says that his job is to allow the students to excel.

“Working on such a big event as this is always very exciting,” says Jagger. “We have 40 students rehearsing to be onstage and another 40 rehearsing to be in the orchestra pit. We have students working on marketing, set design, lighting design, costumes, props, etc., and this all comes together to make a successful show which will live on in the memories of these students for decades to come.”
