Holy Spirit Drama Students: "School House Rock, Jr."

Holy Spirit Drama Students: "School House Rock, Jr." Laurie Mitchell

The Holy Spirit Catholic School Drama Department presented School House Rock, Jr. the weekend of March 31 at the Holy Spirit stage.

To the audience’s delight, the cast performed the story of a young teacher (played by Holy Spirit senior Julian Lawson) nervous about his first day of teaching. As he watches the popular 1970s School House Rock cartoon series on TV, different sides of his personality (played by students Henry Pitts, Sophie Petrovic, Maria Phelps, Andrew David and Anna Pitts) ease his anxiety about working in the classroom through the popular songs from the cartoon with the help of  the musical ensemble, including Holy Spirit students Devyn Dillard, Bailey McLaurine, Sailey Nichols, Emily Campbell, Charli Whitney, Campbell Bullard, Mindy Mitchell, Anabelle Upton, Sadie McClendon, Grady McClendon, Maya Young, Nelsy Gomez, Audrey Shore, Becca Melton, Madalyn Mitchell, Cailyn Garrett, Maggie Shore, J.J Horn, Ciel Coma and Pearl Davis.

With a flashback to songs including “Conjunction Junction”, “Unpack your Adjectives”,” Three is a Magic Number”, “I’m just a Bill”, “The Preamble”, “Elbow Room”, “Circulation”, “ Interplanet Janet”, “A Noun is a Person, Place or Thing”,” Great American Melting Pot”, and “Interjections”, the show gives lessons on grammar, math, science, social studies and political science through its catchy tunes. Directed by theater veteran Kelsey Holland Killgore, with choreography by Justin Barnette, musical direction by Annie McClendon, stage management by Brandi Troxtel and with backstage crew member Kate Wilson, the show rocked this particular school house.

Holy Spirit Catholic School takes pride in offering students the best in educational opportunities, including the fine arts.
