At Exeter Township Senior High School the spring musical gives many student athletes the opportunity to perform in a different way as they take to the stage.

Rehearsals general have some students running in late, fresh from practices or games, stopping only long enough to change their shoes, and sliding into their spots on stage. Other students are quietly slipping out early for dance lessons.

With so many different schedules to coordinate, director Kathy Galtere admits that planning rehearsals can be difficult.

“We have so many people running in so many different directions. It can get pretty crazy,” Galtere said.

Exeter’s community and administration has always strongly supported both athletics and the arts, and students are given every opportunity to pursue numerous interests.

The students in the musical cast represent numerous different sports, including wrestling, basketball, tennis, lacrosse, soccer, cheerleading and more.

The students are grateful for the opportunities they receive from their teachers, coaches and directors, work hard to make the final product the best it can be, whether on the stage or on the field.

Exeter is presenting Anything Goes! Friday, April 15 at 7:30 pm and Saturday, April 16 at 2:30 pm and 7:30 pm. For tickets, call Exeter High School at 610-779-3060, or visit the high school website. All tickets are $10.00.

Come out and support your local athletes as they trade their uniforms for costumes and their cleats for tap shoes.
