It was a short but wonderful Snow Daze week at Eden Valley-Watkins High School last week.
Coronation and the variety show were scheduled for Monday the 27th, but schools announced Sunday that they would be closed Monday. Schools again were closed Tuesday because of blowing snow and bitterly cold temperatures. So a week’s worth of activities were packed into three days.
The coronation and variety show was rescheduled for Wednesday afternoon to kick off what was left of the week.
EV-W’s spring musical Annie will offer high school, elementary students and community members the opportunity to team up and showcase their acting and singing talents.
The school/community venture is a first, at least in recent memory, for the drama department. Adults have helped behind the scenes in numerous school plays and several years ago a community theatre group produced a few plays, but Annie will put adults and students on stage together.
Director Vicki Meyer is excited about the venture. “We would like both students and adults to have a chance at the roles of Daddy Warbucks, Miss Hannigan, Rooster and other fun parts,” she said.
