Schools Rock

Schools Rock – SHS Variety Show Audition Applications Due December 14th
We are calling all acts to audition to be in our 10th Annual Variety Show, known as Schools Rock, and held this year at school on Sunday, February 3. Last year, more than 20 acts shared their talents at this family show in which students have the opportunity to perform, serve as emcees or as show crew members. Now is the time to dream up your special act or your fabulous emcee introduction! We encourage all students and their families to audition. What are the judges looking for? Over the years we have had solo, duet, small and large ensemble acts; children and families who sing, dance, play instruments, recite speeches or poetry, juggle, and perform scenes from or develop original plays or comedy acts. Talent and emcee auditions will take place on Saturday, January 12, in our gym. Crew sign-up is due in January. See below for applications.
