The week after Spring break Englewood High School’s improvisation theater group The Band of Silly Pirates will be sailing the high seas once more. That is, the group will start rehearsing again after a significant hiatus.
“I’m excited for everyone to come together again and to have a good show,” the group’s leader Kelly Erbentraut said.
While rehearsing, the group plays games to get used to making funny stories up on the spot, and get a sense of family.
“I’m excited to just do improv again because it’s really fun. It’s fun to hang out with the people, it’s a funny show, and it’s fun to do,” group member Kimberly Cox (11) said.
The goals for the group is to get more people involved, plan the future performance, and get prepared for another hilarious BSP! show.
“We want a bigger crowd to come than we had last time,” Erbentraut said.
Music is everywhere: the coffee shop, the elevator, even the television. It is something that many people use therapeutically and others just for fun. Whatever way one uses it, music has a great impact on a person’s educational experiences and, in the month of March, Englewood schools is bringing this concept to Englewood.
Music in our School’s Month (MIOSM) takes place throughout March. Schools all over the nation are encouraged to expose students to the benefits of music education courtesy of National Association for Music Education.
This month marks the third annual district wide MIOSM choir performance. Bishop Elementary, Clayton Elementary and the entire TEC campus are working tirelessly to bring together a beautiful choral performance for all of the Englewood Community. Under the direction of Garlyn Saddler, this musical collaboration will be delivered on March 18 at 7:00pm in the renovated Englewood High School Field House.
Who knew it could rain inside the school? The cast of The Englewood Campus’ Singin’ in the Rain did!
For the first time ever, Englewood Leadership Academy, Englewood Middle School and Englewood High School are coming together to deliver the annual Spring musical. Students from grades sixth to twelfth have been collaborating with one another to make sure that the production runs smoothly, but with so many different ages under one curtain, it can be difficult.
“It’s a little tough sometimes because they (the middle school actors) are younger and they look up to the older kids. The high school students have to make sure we set a good example and show everyone what is expected,” Noa Maes (11) said.
The show opens March 6th and closes March 7th in the Fisher Auditorium. The doors will open at 6:30pm and the show will ensure at 7pm. Tickets will be available upon arrival at the price of $6 for adults and $3 for students and seniors.
“People should come see the show because we have put a lot of hard work into it. Every cast member is dedicated to giving the very best performance to our audience. You will not regret coming,” Maes said.
The lights at Pirate Stadium will soon welcome back their stellar girls soccer team. After last year’s success of not being scored on, the expectations are high and the team has high hopes to surpass everything accomplished in the 2014 season. The team went 13-1-1 with the only loss being their first playoff game. The friendships that tie the team together as a family are an advantage to future success.
“I think we’re going to do pretty well actually. It might be a rough start because so many of our teammates left last year, but i think we can pull it together and do even better.”, Sierra Mazur (10).
