Fourth and fifth graders from Mr. Saguil’s and Ms. Morioka’s seminar classes at Dingeman Elementary School will soon present to the community a performance of Night at the Wax Museum, a story of what happens to wax statues after the lights go out. The musical is filled with catchy songs, crazy antics, and historical figures that magically come alive and interact with the unfortunate students who are volunteering at Cultully Museum. King Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, Blackbeard, Cleopatra, Pancho Villa, and Calamity Jane are just a few of the famous people who come alive to dance and sing. “This year, it’s a mix of history and fun,” said fifth grader Sargini Sudarsan, who plays Ivy Sweet in the play. “You learn about history in an indirect way.”

The musical will be held at the school on Wednesday, Dec. 19 at 7 p.m. in the multipurpose room. The performance is free and open to the community, but donations are welcome. Discover more at
