Rotary visits 'The Lion King' At LMS; Annual Show drawing rave reviews and SRO crowds

Louisa Rotarians gathered at the Louisa Middle school on Thursday, April 12th for their weekly meeting to watch “The Lion King,” a yearly play put on by the Louisa Middle School Performing Arts Troupe. The play is always an exciting field trip for Rotarians and a refreshing break from the normal meeting.

The Lion King, directed by Tonya Castle-Burkett was showed on Thursday and Friday at 7:00 P.M. to packed crowds and Louisa Rotarians got a quick peek at the amazing talent we have at L.M.S. and all around our county.

LMS principal Joey Cecil introduced the play and stated, “I always loved our Performing Arts. And actually, we've had a few students make it big in the field. It is always a good feeling when that happens.”

The school's philosophy is: ...centered on the whole child, understands the social, emotional and physical changes of students this age, places emphasis on developing personal organization systems and responsibility, places emphasis on academic success and offers varied experiences for our children to try new things and succeed.

As always the play never disappoints. As Rafiki says, The past can hurt, but the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it. As the brochure states, KEEP CALM AND HAKUNA MATATA!

It's Hakuna Matata. Not Kakuna.

Maybe she's a Pokémon fan.
