NHS AND DRAMA CLUB ANNOUNCE ANNUAL SENIOR CITIZEN EVENT: MARCH 14


MVHS Drama Club’s spring musical is coming to town, bringing with it the popular Dinner-and-a-Show Senior Citizen Event. Partnering with the Drama Club, the National Honor Society (NHS) will host and sponsor the March 14 dinner in the school cafeteria, followed by a sneak preview of “Working,” the musical, in the auditorium. Doors open at 3 p.m.

Student members of the NHS will take care of everything: the cooking, the baking, and the serving; the favors, centerpieces, and hall decorations, themed after the show. From the dining hall, our special guests will move next door to the school’s auditorium, and enjoy the first public performance of “Working.”

“I'm really excited for the senior citizen event to take place!” said Danielle Bellettiere, NHA president. “I'm actually in the musical, so I will be putting more work into the planning, but I'm happy our seniors will be able to come out and see the play. I know they have been looking forward to it, and that's what I really love about the events we put on through NHS: they put a smile on people's faces!”

Fresh off the final performance of "The Aristocats, Kids," at the Intermediate School, the High School Drama Club dove right into their spring musical project. The cast, crews, and instrumentalists are excited to bring the story of the American working class to life, on the high school stage, with snappy tunes and realistic monologues that everyone will enjoy. 

“Our preparations have already begun and our members' enthusiasm promises a great event for all attendees,” said Brandon Bell, NHS secretary, and member of the Drama Club. “We look forward to welcoming our local senior citizens with a host of outstanding volunteers and performers!"

More about the show...

“Working” is the kind of show your recognize yourself in. Based in Studs Terkel’s book by the same title, it features music and lyrics around universal themes by a variety of Broadway and pop composers, including Stephen Schwartz (“Wicked”), and James Taylor.

At the heart of the show, are the hopes and dreams, joys and hardships of the average working American, from school teachers to parking lot attendants, wait staff, masons, and truck drivers. Compelling and moving, accessible and relatable, “Working” connects and celebrates the American worker.
