About the Sanford Musical

Since 2009, Project Success has produced yearly school musicals in partnership with Sanford Middle School. Past productions include: Annie, The Wiz, Just SoA Year With Frog and Toad, Charlie BrownThe Lion KingNewsies, and Shrek.

Each year, up to 90 students work in front of and behind the scenes. For eight weeks, students act, dance, and sing with professional artists and work with high quality sound, sets, lighting and costumes.

In rehearsal, students work closely with local artist educators. The musical experience helps students build confidence, gain new experiences, and learn more about themselves and each other through the power of theater.

Every fall, parents, teachers, students, district leaders and community members pack the house for performances. Afterwards, audiences leave inspired, entertained, and impressed by the talents and efforts put forth by each performer and crew member
