High school chorus performs skits in lieu of musical

If you haven’t heard already, the Bellwood-Antis High School Music Department will be skipping their annual Spring Musical this year. While there will still be a choral concert, band concert, and a middle school musical, high school students have chosen to partake in something a little different.

It’s a way to incorporate theater into our regular chorus class and keeps them prepared if we choose to have a musical next year”

— Ms. Hull

This Friday, May 5, 2016, volunteering high school students have elected to take part in an event all their own; groups will be performing skits from beloved classics (Grease, High School Musical, Phantom of the Opera, Rent, and 1776 to name a few).

This event will be held directly after the Poetry Slam in the auditorium. However, if you’re wondering what it takes to gain admittance, the requirements are steep. The performances are only open to middle and high school chorus students.

When asked about where the idea came from, Ms. Hull, Bellwood-Antis High School Chorus teacher, stated, “We wanted to do something for the high school chorus students who were missing out on the musical this year. It’s a way to incorporate theater into our regular chorus class and keeps them prepared if we choose to have a musical next year.”
