Bill McGlynn remembers watching a school play at Oak Park's Hawthorne Junior High when he was kid. It was a fall performance of A Christmas Carol. Watching that play inspired him to one day get onstage himself. He eventually did, as one of the first members of CAST, Hawthorne's upstart performing arts program.
CAST, the performing arts program at Percy Julian Middle School gave camp parents the chance to get a sneak peek at the progress of the varied performances. The performing arts summer camp for 3rd through 8th grade students will feature 4 separate performances this year.
