The month of November gives students four days off, Election Day and Thanksgiving Break. The day before Thanksgiving break, the National Honors Society will be hosting their annual talent show. Auditions will be the 2nd and 3rd and tickets to watch the show will be available closer to the event.
The theatre troupe will be presenting two plays this month; a main stage show, “Mouse Trap,” and an X-Theatre show, “Scariest Play Ever.” The murder mystery “Mouse trap” will be on the 11th and 12th at 7pm. The spooky comedy “Scariest Play Ever” will be at 6pm and 8pm on the 18th of November.
Junior Gabe Willenberg is planning to go to some of the events throughout November.
“I don’t plan on [going to the talent show], but I’ll probably go see Mouse Trap if I have time because several of my friends are in it,” said Junior Gabe Willenberg.
