ASHBURN, Va. (WUSA) -- Eighteen-years-old and he's already an accomplished playwright! Briar Woods High School senior Greg Mooradian spent a year creating his musical based on Queen Elizabeth Tudor.

Now his classmates are putting it on stage. Senior Amanda Anzalone's powerful, pitch perfect voice fills the auditorium emotion, bringing Mooradian's labor of love to life.

Moordian wrote the all the dialogue, the music and lyrics for the 18 songs in the production and he preformed and mixed the music on his laptop computer.

The 200 plus members of the BWHS drama department are all pitching in, from building and painting the scenery to scripting the lighting cues for the show.

Senior Emily Heier designed the elaborate costumes, her mom sewed them.

"Elizabeth" promises to be an amazing production, almost as promising as the future for Greg Moordian. The play is on stage Nov 17, 18, and 19th.
