    Congrats to all! In particular, best wishes to Jacob Poirier and J.R. Duval for doing a
    great job as JoJo, sharing a challenging role for anyone, let alone 6th graders, and
    supporting each other along the way. You are exhibiting true professionalism. I am proud
    of you both. And Who would think a think? That in all of WhoLelandom, such a small Who
    place would sound such a Who volume! Surely, Horton did think that think! Go! Enjoy!
    There are four more chances for you to hear the voices this coming weekend! THEY ARE HERE!
    THEY ARE HERE! 256-9857!
