Magic in the making

While the students aren’t bringing inanimate things to life or casting curses, they are practicing for the Friday performance of "Magic in the Making," which takes place at 7 p.m. at Spring Lake High School.

The students will take to the stage with actors from the Grand Haven-based Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company to create a witches scene from "Macbeth."

Carlos Seise, a world-renowned opera tenor, will also perform at the concert.

Proceeds from the one-night show will benefit the nonprofit Artists Creating Together group.

The Community Based Instruction program is overseen by the Ottawa Area Center. The program is for young adults, ages 18-26, who have not yet completed transition requirements and qualify for continuing special-education services through the Ottawa Area Intermediate School District.

Grand Haven CBI teacher Terry Goldberg said student artwork, including weaving and quilting, will be on display during Friday's event.

Goldberg said previously shy students are coming out of their shells to participate.

“They’re venturing out of their comfort zone by doing this,” he said.
