Virtual Guest Chad Beguelin

Recently our Jr. High Chorus had an amazing opportunity. We hosted a virtual guest speaker by the name of Chad Beguelin! Mr. Beguelin is an American playwright and is a 6 time Tony Award nominee! He is best known for his work in major musical productions that include The Wedding Singer, Disney's Aladdin, Elf, and most recently, The Prom. He also wrote the script for the new movie, The Prom, featuring Nicole Kidman, Meryl Streep, and James Corden (which is based on the Musical). It just so happens, our Jr. High Chorus is singing one of his songs from Elf! Near the end of the visit, our students performed the piece for him! The video will be in the comments. Students also asked many questions related to his career and how he got to where he is today! Thank you Mr. Beguelin for taking the time to speak with us today! You can check out the new movie on Netflix right now and if you would like more information about Mr. Beguelin, you can visit his website at!
