Photos, Video, Story: Neshannock presents spring musical ‘No, No, Nanette’



This is Cavalier’s 19th year at directing musicals at Neshannock. His philosophy is to do auditions first, pick the show later. That way, the production is matched with the talent of the students

It’s a strategy that works time after time.

Another credo is “If you can’t do it right, don’t do it.”

Hutchison remarked that, “To get the best out of the cast, you have to expect the best, and Mr. Cavalier expects nothing less that the best. “

With his customary quickness at making creative descriptions, Cavalier said, “This show is like air. It’s frothy. It’s bubbly. The audience members should be walking around smiling.”

The director and company are confident the musical numbers will stick in peoples’ heads.

“It’s a Valentine of 1925,” Cavalier summarized. “C’mon. ‘I Want to Be Happy.’ That’s what this show is all about.

“American musical theater was based on having a good time.”

If the reaction is that a good time was had by all, the director and cast will be happy, too.
