“Hours and hours of planning, choreography and rehearsals have been put into this musical and I wouldn’t change a bit of it,” said Cadet 3rd Class Adrienne Weaver, Bluebards choreographer, and performer. “It’s been amazing to see every cast member develop skills and confidence onstage as they fully assumed their unique roles.
