Congratulations to the Milton High School Class of 2019!

Pierce Players spring production is “Mary Poppins Jr.” and the stars of the show took a moment out of their busy rehearsal regimen to give a preview of what the audience is in for, including impressive stagecraft, period costumes and the themes that connect to the actors on a personal level. Check out this brief promo all around the MATV schedule as well as on our website.
