Fillmore, Center Stage, originally uploaded by foolscircle.

Last weekend, I was hired to photograph the world premiere of the Bentley School’s latest musical production, Sherman’s Lagoon.  The play is based on the comic of the same, which is written and drawn by Jim Toomey.  It turns out that the play’s director is friends with Toomey, and the cartoonist was heavily involved with the play’s creation.

The play is actually really cute, which was a lot more than I could’ve hoped for from a high school production (seriously, I’ve photographed some other high school stageshows over the years which have been simply dreadful), and I was really impressed by the quality of the songs and the set design.  The girl here plays Fillmore, the knowledgable turtle who generally fixes the titular Sherman’s messes with his common sense.

If you’re interested, tickets to the show can be purchased here.
