during the Spring Variety Show.
On May 15, MCH’s choir and one-act play classes ended the school year on a high note with the Spring Variety Show at Harrell Memorial Chapel. Students from these after school programs performed in front of an audience of their peers, MCH staff and families.
The variety show included solo and group performances from the choir, as well as monologues and duet acting from one-act play. This was the first year MCH offered these classes in its after school programs.
These students also competed in the Texas Christian Athletic League (TCAL) Fine Arts and Academics competition for the first time this year. Entries included solos, ensembles, choir, monologues, poetry interpretation, duet acting and one act play. The choir performance was awarded fifth place. Ema, a Waco resident and student in the one-act play class, won sixth place for her monologue.
“Performing in front of an audience was a big step for many of the students,” said Beth Harris, recreation director. “I was really proud of them! It took a lot of courage for them to perform in front of judges at TCAL and in front of their peers at the Spring Variety Show. The audience at MCH was such an encouragement to the students. I heard a lot of great feedback for the students who performed.”
This year’s choir class was led by instructor Amy Toney and assisted by recreation coordinator and pianist Kimberly Bobbitt. Kira Rockwell was MCH’s theater instructor.
