The Night Before New Year's

A Holiday Musical written, directed, choreographed by the Faculty at LAAPA

The Night Before New Year's - An Original LAAPA Musical

A magical, musical adventure where four downhearted middle schoolers journey back in time to undo the previous year’s mistakes. Guided by destiny, they explore the past through song, comedy, drama, and of course…dance! Destiny assembles the most unlikely characters to join them such as swimmers, football players, younger siblings and even dancing reindeer. They discover more about themselves and how to become the best selves they can possibly be in the new year, 2023!

The faculty at LAAPA are proud to showcase our original Holiday production for 2022! Our student dancers, actors, and musicians did some amazing work!

Written and Directed by Mrs. Rachel Theriot, Administrative Director and Mrs. Elle Jones, Coordinator of Dance Studies with choreography by Elle Jones and Kendra Wills, and music by Daniel Jones, Kilian Afzalirad, Olivia Gonzalez, and Aaron Boudreaux.

Thanks to all of our parents, students, faculty, staff who made this production possible.
