Owls Head Variety Show makes a return

Mar 30, 2014
Students with a variety of talents take the stage March 22 in the return of a long-standing tradition at Owls Head Central School.

Owls Head — After two years of no show, Kristen Freeman and Linda Woodman revived the Owls Head Central School Variety Show.

It had been a longstanding tradition at Owls Head Central School for 19 years. This year¹s performance Saturday March 22, had 14 acts with 32 students participating.

The acts ranged from solo vocalists to puppet shows to several dance/gymnastics routines. There was an intermission after Act I where attendees could purchase baked goods and popcorn with proceeds benefiting the Gilford Butler/Owls Head Parent Group.

Fifth-graders kicked off the show by singing the National Anthem. The show was emceed by fifth-graders who made the introductions and told jokes in between acts. All kids were welcomed on stage after the final act to do the Cha Cha Slide.

Angela Johnson, musical director for grades 3-7, was an excellent resource as she had helped in years past. She taught Jeanne Ackor how to do sound.

At least 150 people were in attendance. Everyone left happy. It was a great experience for the kids, and the families and friends truly enjoyed the show.
