SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2022 AT 7:00 P.M. AND SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2022 AT 3:00 P.M.



  Please join the Sylvan-Lucas Unified High School Vocal Music Department as they perform Disney’s “High School Musical, Jr.” on both Saturday, November 19 and Sunday, November 20.  They will also do a matinee for the Lucas-Sylvan Elementary School on Thursday, November 17, at 12:30 P.M.  All performances will be in the High School Commons Area.

Musical productions are a long-time tradition for our high school and, over the years, many wonderful and professionally-done shows have entertained our communities!  This year is no exception and we invite everyone in our communities to come out and support these great young people in this special musical endeavor!  They have worked for many weeks to bring to their audience an excellent and very entertaining show.

   We have eight amazing Seniors in the production this year.  Goldie Dohe and Clara Griffiths are our music technicians.  Liberty Ringler is the Spotlight technician with Addie Wallace in charge of stage lighting.  Addie also plays the part of Ms. Darbus, East High’s eccentric drama teacher.  Passionate and disciplined, she never stops trying to enrich the lives of her students through the wonders of live theater.  Keeli Knobbe plays the part of Sharpay Evans, the dramatic and self-centered star of the school musicals.  Between her and twin brother, Ryan (Harlan Pancost), she is the Alpha twin, an over-the-top, demanding and always showing her enthusiastic flair for the theater and working the crowd!  Taylor Fallis plays the part of Susan, a fellow thespian to Sharpay, who makes quite an impression with her audition for the school musical, “Romeo and Juliet.”  Taylor also helps Clara and Goldie with music technology.  Kaylee Johnson plays the part of Gabriella Montez, a new student who’s struggling to find her place.  She can be described as a Renaissance woman who doesn’t fully identify with any of the school cliques, but she comes into her own when she discovers her talent and love for singing with Troy (Valden Dohl).   Valden plays the part of Troy Bolton, the most popular student at East High and the star of the basketball team.  Troy really wants to be more than “just the basketball guy” to his friends and, especially, to his Dad, Coach Bolton (Matthew Lawson).

  The musical features all 38 members of the choir with choreography and supportive roles.  Other major parts are played by Harlan Pancost (Ryan Evans), Matthew Lawson (Coach Bolton), Jacob Schultz (Jack Scott), Sydney Heller (Taylor Mckessie), Hannah Pahls (Kelsi Nielsen), Layne Buttenhoff (Chad Danforth), Isaac Schultz (Zeke Baylor), Anna Feldkamp (Martha Cox), Maggie Labertew (Kate Kanfield), Eli Schultz (Kratinoff), Gunner Hulse (James), Aubrelle Hurlbut (Ms. Tenny), and Molly Heller (Moderator).

  Please join us as these fine young musicians guide you through what really matters in all situations, to be yourself.  “Together” we are all better, stronger, kinder people who can accomplish the goals in life that seem to be the hardest to attain.

Mock Interview Challenge 

Senior students enrolled in Personal Finance class participated in Mock Interviews on Wednesday, conducted by Kimberly Meyer and Rhonda Haberer.  As part of this process, students created a cover letter and professional resume with references for an entry-level position for which they are currently qualified.  Each student was evaluated on these elements, in addition to their performance during a mock interview.  The top performing student from each section received a call-back interview.  Those two students were Taylor Fallis and Keeli Knobbe.  Completing a second interview in front of the panel of two potential employers, the student who had the best responses and documents was selected as the person who "Got the Job."  While interviewers commended all students on their interviews, they ultimately selected Keeli Knobbe as the winner.
