Biiiiiiig Art Announcement!

The National Council on Education in the Ceramic Arts has selected the 

best pottery and ceramic artwork in the country to be included in their

national art show this March in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Over 1,200 pieces were submitted for the show and only 130 

were selected.  Lewis Central had three outstanding art students chosen

for this event.  Leslie Trujillo, Joshua Sell, and Nick Stogdill all were 

selected and will have artwork on display to represent our school.

Congratulations Leslie, Josh and Nick on your outstanding effort and 

the excellence of your talents you've developed.  We are all so proud of you.                    

Students!  Temperatures in the teens call for warming up with a hot drink. Come check out the coffee selection in the library.  From coffee and cappuccino in a variety of flavors, tea, and cocoa, we've got something to keep you cozy despite the frigid weather.  Just $1.00 for a warm, tasty beverage of your choice!                                                                                         

Congratulations to the jazz band on winning class 4A at the Southwest Iowa jazz festival. Sam Higginbotham, Spencer Cooper-Ohm and Alexis Bach were recognized for outstanding solos and Nathan Sell was named best soloist in 4A. The band will now be eligible to compete with the best in the state of Iowa at Iowa Jazz Championships.  Come see this band and the concert bands tonight at the band concert-weather permitting.

McG:  Circus Music TODAY IS THE BIG DAY.  It is a masterful retelling of the original sensation, 
injected with contemporary references and dazzling new arrangements. 

VICKA:  Godspell 
was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden); and it took the world by storm. Led by the international hit, "Day by Day," Godspell features a parade of beloved songs, including "Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord," "Learn Your Lessons Well," "All for the Best," "All Good Gifts," "Turn Back, O Man" and "By My Side."

IAN:  A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life. 

VICKA:  Boasting a score with chart-topping songs, a book by a visionary playwright (John-Michael Tebelak) and a feature film, Godspell is a sensation that continues to touch audiences. Because of its flexible technical demands and flexible cast size, it has become a staple of theatre companies, large and small.

 IAN:  If interested, you need to ttend one of the two Drama Room General Meetings

TODAY Tuesday, February 19, 2019 from 3:00-4:15 pm OR

explain the audition and interview process at the general meetings.  No experience is needed and one need not be enrolled in Drama or Choir to participate.  

IAN:  Students will learn audition music in choir classes and in the General Meetings.  We are super excited to set the program on a new course with this production and we are eager to involve lots of new students in this magical and positive process.  

VICKA:  Please join us in Continuing our Winning Tradition of Excellence in producing our 23rd straight annual musical.  Mrs. Langdon, Mr. Tucker and McG are all excited to get started on this process that will continue to celebrate LC Arts and it rich tradition.

McG:  See you today and tomorrow or Thursday morning depending on the weather.  GODSPELL Production Team Interviews and Acting Ensemble General Meeting today and tomorrow or Thursday.  Bring a friend as this is going to be a stellar experience.
