The re­views are in: Cedar­town High School stu­dents sure know how to have a lot of fun up on stage.

The Cedar­town High School the­ater depart­ment held their 20th an­niver­sary show ti­tled “Legacy” and cel­e­brated both this year’s cast and those from the past at the Cedar­town Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter on March 29 and March 30.

Af­ter months of plan­ning, the cul­mi­na­tion of dance, mu­sic and lo­cal­ized skits came to­gether in two nights of en­ter­tain­ment in the show’s fi­nal year at the CPAC. They’ll be mov­ing along next year into a new space when the Fine Arts build­ing ad­di­tion at the high school is com­pleted for the 2019-2020 school year.

The per­for­mances on Saturday were also pre­ceded by a cast and alumni party for those stu­dent producers from 1999 through to to­day who made the show hap­pen.

Chris Reaves, who an­nu­ally di­rects the stu­dents in plan­ning as a class, said pre­vi­ously that the al­ready-com­pet­i­tive pro­gram will get even more packed with dif­fer­ent as­pects of the­ater pro­duc­tion with the ex­panded space and opportunities avail­able, like letting stu­dents de­sign their own lighting schemes for scenes.
