Students Wow Audience at MAMMA MIA

The cast and crew of Pacific Ridge School’s upper school musical MAMMA MIA! wowed audiences at Howard Brubeck Theatre over the weekend of January 23rd- 25th! Through four showings, cast members showcased their impressive acting and vocal skills while the crew kept the performance running smoothly. Director Fredreka Irvine said “a standout moment was when all the seniors led everyone in our final ‘Shakeout’. Special shout-out to senior Encinitas local Jake Sager who has been a stage manager with Pacific Ridge since the 7thgrade and it will be sad to see him go.” During the performances, judges from National Youth Arts Awards and Broadway San Diego Awards were in attendance to adjudicate and results will be released in early May! Congratulations to the entire cast and crew, leads and Encinitas residents junior Ella Shreiner and junior Jordan Becknell, leads and Carlsbad residents junior Macie Parker, sophomore Luke Basanese, sophomore Gibson Witz and junior Joonho Hong, lead and San Marcos resident sophomore Melissa Rector, director Fredreka Irvine and everyone else who played a part in making the show happen!
