FALL CHOIR/ORCHESTRA CONCERT

Thank you to those of you who came to support our students hard work this quarter. After talking to some of the students, they felt that they gave a successful performance and I think that we started the year off strong.

The Choir, Orchestra and Guitar share an Instagram page- @combshighmusic- please feel free to follow us, we’d love your support on there as well!

GIRLS VOLLEYBALL

Coach Ed Allen has a A fun tradition with his Volleyball girls to help them celebrate their birthdays in a special way. For anyone unfortunate enough to have a birthday ON a game day, they get an “extra special” birthday surprise. See video below

DON'T TELL THE SECRET

MENACHAP, CALIFORNIA. An incomprehensible event: every person in the audience of a high school play falls unconscious -- every person but one.


Using interviews with witnesses, loved ones, first responders, and the investigators pursuing the case, a theatre ensemble brings the story of the strange event to life, documentary-style. But as the strands weave together into an increasingly dangerous web, it becomes clear that this phenomenon might not be entirely in the past.


Combs Curtain Call is presenting TRAP! by Stephen Gregg on October 14, 15, and 18th at 7 pm

Tickets are $5 for students and $8 for adults. Don't miss out. Scan QR code for Trap tickets.
