LIVE MUSIC PROGRAM CANCELLED FOR MONDAY NOVEMBER 30TH
Due to COVID concerns the administration has decided we will not be having a live performance of our Grade School Christmas program. The program will be recorded during the school day next Monday, November 30th, and then released for viewing.
Parents who have an email on file will receive a private link to view the program. We ask that you share the link only with family members, and not to post it to any public social media site due to copyright restrictions. DVD recordings will also be available for purchase.
Since the performance taping will occur during school hours, please send your child(ren) dressed up in beachy or Christmas style clothes on Monday, November 30th.
Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.
Music Department Presents Musical
***NOTICE--The School Musical has been postponed to a later date.***
The Sylvan-Lucas Unified High School Choral Department will present "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" in three performances, beginning with the Grade School Matinee at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 19, 2020, followed by Friday, November 20, at 7:00p.m. and Sunday, November 22, at 3:00p.m. The performances will be held in the High School Commons Area. Due to the Covid virus, we are limiting the admission price is $5.00 per person, but since we have to limit our audiences to 100 people, the students would welcome any financial assistance in the form of a donation to offset money lost from less people attending each performance. Please call the office to reserve a seat and do it soon because when the 100 seats are filled, we must turn away the added audience numbers. When you call, designate which performance you would like to attend. The Thursday matinee will not be open to very many community members, as the Grade School Staff and students will number close to the 100 reserved seats for that day.
Senior students who are performing in the musical are Elizabeth McCoy (Milly); Logan Buttenhoff (Adam); Haley Fallis (Martha); Marshall Hurlbut (Frank); Bree Neel (Sarah); Chloe Dohe (Mrs. Hoallum); Kaley Wolting (Mrs. Sander) and Brooke Tate and Jordan Urban, Stage Managers.

Townspeople: Jayde Goss, Sarah Hudson, Rylee Nowes, Goldie Dohe, Taylor Fallis, Skyylar Goss, Clara Griffiths, Adin Hulett, Nathaly Lopez, Liberty Ringler, Victoria Warren Kailea Goss, Ella Hogan and Cienna Nondorf. These students also work the lights, sound, spotlight and set up the stage between scenes.
The setting for the musical is the Oregon Territory in the year 1850. Adam Pontipee (Logan Buttenhoff) has come into town with a long list of supplies he needs for the long winter ahead, including looking for a bride! There's 10 men for every woman in the Oregon territory so he is told that most of the women in town are already taken. He spots one particular gal, Milly Bradon (Elizabeth McCoy) who has learned to work hard and survive the rowdy men in the town as she works at the local café, One man to cook and clean for sounds like Heaven to Milly so when Adam proposes, she accepts. When they arrive at the cabin in the mountains, she is surprised to find out that Adam has 6 brothers who live with him! They are rough mountain men with no manners and no idea how to court a woman! She does her best, trying to cook and clean, one again, for a mob of rude and rowdy men. She teaches the brothers some etiquette and encourages them to meet some of the town girls at a social! Adam, on the other hand, thinks courting is unnecessary because he didn't have to court Milly. He just married her! The social is not too successful for the brothers and their alternative to courting is kidnapping!
