The Sounds of Winter

From eighth grade band to fifth grade choir, heavenly notes of holiday spirit could be heard booming from the gymnasium on both Tuesday, Dec. 11 and Wednesday, Dec. 12.

All choruses performed on Tuesday night with the swing choir opening the show. One highlight of the choir performances was the sixth grade choir performing "Feliz Navidad." Other highlights included seventh grade choir performing "Believe" from The Polar Express and eighth grade choir performing "White Christmas."

The bands filled every seat in the house on Wednesday night. Highlights from the band concert include all of the solo improv performances by the jazz band, the demonstration of how much the sixth grade band has improved over the semester and of course, the more sophisticated tunes of the seventh and eighth grade bands.

Lights, Camera, Action!

Whether it be performed on a Broadway stage or in the LGI room, a lot of work goes into the production of a play. For the Clark Theatre Company, this was no exception.

"We started rehearsing the beginning of October and practiced a few days a week, until the performances this weekend, [December 6, 7, 8]," Bob Gustas, Director, said.

Every year the company performs a fall comedy and a spring musical. This year the show was "Making Nice."

"I try to choose a play that has many characters so more students can be involved. I like to do a one-act comedy, or two if I can find two, in the fall to introduce the kids to theatre," Gustas said.

In the spring, the company plans on performing "Annie." Last year, they performed "Mary Poppins."

"Opening went fabulous. The kids did a tremendous job and I believe everyone who came had fun and enjoyed themselves. I was quite proud of them," Gustas said.

On Dec. 6, the boys eighth grade basketball team defeated Highland 59-23. The night's starters were Brandon Escobedo, Hunter Snyder, Dean Wooley, Ivan Montano and Ben White. In addition to the cheerleaders and fans bringing an exciting atmosphere, the pep band played their instruments and shouted louder than anyone else in the gym.

Paws for a Cause
