Night of Stars Preview


From music to theatre, Night of Stars is sure to have plenty of interesting talents displayed. The performance is performed in honor of Robert Locke, who died in his sleep.

“Every year, his father comes and watches the performances; also, he grants scholarships to seniors who are planning to study theatre,” said junior Riley Houde.

Students compete every year during the showcase for these scholarships.

“I prepare by going over my monologue and listening to critiques from Mr. Carter as well as my classmates,” said junior Sydney Mills. “We run over blocking and pacing as well, for the performance.”

A lot of work went into this event and it holds a special place in some students’ hearts.

“This event is special to me because we have the opportunity to honor one of our own,” said Houde. “ He was a class of 2007 graduate.”

“Expect to see solos, musical duets, duet acting scenes, monologues, small group acting, small group musicals, as well as other creative individual events,” Mills said. “This year is special because a lot of students wrote their own acting pieces.”

The show runs Friday, Feb. 23 at 7 p.m. in the Gerald Cassanova Performing Arts Center. Admission is free, but donations are welcome.
