WILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington Community Television (WCTV) recently released its latest documentary — “School of Rockumentary” — which gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at this year’s Wilmington High School Lamplighters Drama Guild’s spring musical production of “School of Rock.”
Produced by WCTV staff member Ashley Stevens & Maria Aliberti, the documentary features interviews with several cast members and remarks from Artistic Director Samantha Prindville, as well as footage from rehearsals, performances and the final show’s curtain call. Viewers will learn about Lamplighter traditions, the involvement of 7th and 8th grade students in the production, and who students think are the funniest members of the drama guild.
Made possible thanks to financial support from the Boston-based Ball in the House a cappella group, the documentary includes sit-down interviews with some of the club’s youngest and older members. The play, believed to be the school’s most well-attended Lamplighters production in history, sold 1,305 tickets. For the first time in the guild’s history, middle school students joined the production, both on the stage and behind-the-scenes. More than 50 students, including 13 from the middle school, were part of the cast and crew.
