Families are in for a treat this weekend as the Anselmian Abbey Players present "We Are Young," the 2012 Family Weekend Show. Featuring a student cast and creative team, "We Are Young" is a musical with a twist — giving audiences a window into college life through parody versions of well-known songs, dance numbers, and engaging characters.
Written and directed by Matt Hurd '13, the show follows a group of students through the course of a year on the Hilltop. From the nervous anticipation of move-in day, to the frayed nerves and delirious coffee-riddled exam period, through the conclusion of one cast member's college experience, Anselmians (students and parents) are sure to find the story a familiar one.
Music, directed by Ethan Lawrence '13 features songs such as I Just Can't Wait To Be King (The Lion King); A.B.C. (The Jackson 5); and the title track We Are Young (Fun). For the first time ever, this years' Family Weekend Show also features an original song written and orchestrated by the creative team.
