Prom Announcement is a play that the junior class puts on for the senior class where the details of prom are announced. Based off of a well-known movie, PA is always kept a secret from the seniors until the day it is announced. The directors put so much time and hard work and it really shows. For PA 2018, the theme was Grease and the juniors put on an extremely well done production. The senior class was amazed and some were even brought to tears.
In the middle of 3rd period on Friday, Ms. McCoy came on the intercom. Whenever she comes on at such a random time like that, you know something is up. She talked about it being Christmas season and how she wanted to give us a gift. Then, two juniors announced that our gift was PA.
Directors, Katie Geist (far left) and Rhys Slavik (far right), did a fantastic job creating this play. They organized everything and got together with a writing committee to make this play the best it could be. Danny Zuko was played by Madi Moffitt (middle left) and Sandy, by Sabori Cervantes (middle right).
An interesting spin was put on PA this year, instead of just dialogue, songs were included to make the production more of a musical than a play. Everyone with a singing role did an amazing job of getting the crowd involved with the well-known songs from Grease.
It was great to see almost the entire class on stage at once to dance along to the song “Hand Jive” and “You’re the One That I Want”. The energy on stage really helped get the crowd more excited to find out the theme, colors, location, and date of prom!
Something that impressed the audience was the singing and dancing. Clara Keating and Emma Johnson, two dance team members, taught their class the dance numbers from Grease. This added a fun and unique aspect to the play.

The acting was phenomenal, and it was awesome to see some new faces on the stage who aren’t usually in theater productions. In the picture above, it is easy to see that a lot of work went into the costumes and props.
