GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” Glenwood Springs High School production of “Wonderland The Musical Misadventures of a Girl named Alice,” marks the first theatrical production of Glenwood Springs High School in its new auditorium. The event takes place at 7 p.m. Friday, March 20; and there will be two performances Saturday, March 21″ a matinee at 1 p.m. and an evening performance at 7 p.m.

Glenwood High School alumni Jennetta Meitler Howell and Shanti Gruber are the production’s directors.

Jennetta Meitler Howell, a 1998 graduate of Glenwood Springs High School, is the director/choreographer. Shanti Gruber, former student of Jeannie Miller, 2000 graduate of Glenwood Springs High School, and Glenwood Springs High School choir director, is the musical director of the production.

The new auditorium is in the process of being named after the Glenwood Springs High School 20-year veteran music teacher Jeannie Miller. The facility will be referred to as the Glenwood Springs High School auditorium until the official approval and announcement by the Roaring Fork School District School Board.

The new facility, with a practice stage and a real stage, has stirred the creativity and enthusiasm of students and directors who have been intensely rehearsing all week.

“The new facility is absolutely amazing,” said Gruber. “We have had the pleasure to work in a top-of-the-line facility which will hold about 500 people.”

“The stage is a very big improvement from the old auditorium, big and acoustically wonderful. The members of the GSHS jazz band will be playing for the show, under my direction, adding a higher level of professionalism to the show. It has been such a great experience for us all.”

Tickets at the door will be $7/adults; and $5/students.
