Middle School and High School Musicals

High School Theater Director Lily Palmer unveiled this fall's High School musical to students over popcorn, corn dogs, pretzels, and other carnival-themed food in August. Seniors threw darts at balloons to reveal "Side Show."
 
Based on the true story of conjoined twins who joined a traveling show, the musical's themes teach to accept people for who they are and to not fear differences, Palmer said. "Side Show" features some of our favorite attractions such as the bearded lady, wolf boy, and human pin cushion. Auditions were held in September, and the show will run Wednesday, Nov. 7 through Sunday, Nov. 11.

This show is appropriate for ages 10 and older. General admission is $5. Admission is free for Tiger Arts Patrons, students, faculty, and staff. Click here for tickets.

Show times are:
3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov 7 (A special sneak preview for Middle School After-School and the USN community)
5 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8
7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9
7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10
2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11

 A very special thank you to Marty Johnson for his faith in us in making this pilot show happen. In addition, thanks go out to all the parents and volunteers for their countless hours of support. Every effort has been made to try and ensure these lists are complete. However, because musical parents are so awesome, we are still adding volunteers.

Thank you all so much. We love you and could not do this musical process without you.
