Princeton youth contributes to middle school musical's success

Eleanora Arello-Winston of Princeton, grade 8, contributed to the success of the Worcester Academy Middle School Musical, "Helen on 86th St.," which was staged from Jan. 25-27 at the Worcester Academy Performance Center. Eleanora played the role of "Ms. Dodd, the school drama teacher."

The musical, which is a Kaufman, Kempskie and Stamper collaboration, focuses on 12-year-old "Vita Calista" as she learns to cope with an absent father, a single mother, a disappointing role inside the Trojan Horse in the school play, and the daily pressures of being a 'tween growing up in New York City.

The students were honored to perform the show for Helen On 86th St. author Nicole Kempskie, who said she loved the WA performance.

Eleanora and other members of the cast and crew developed real world skills and effective interpersonal communications and gained self-confidence during the production.
