CMS2 Enjoys Time Together After School

Middle School 2 News, Old News No Comments

Friday, March 8, 2013 the sixth grade had a bowling party at Shawnee Lanes from 4-6 pm. The admission included two games of bowling, a pizza buffet, drinks, and a whole lot of FUN!!! Students from CMS2 went head-to-head on teams of 2-6 players. Everyone had a great time competing with their friends. After they competed they could help themselves to pizza and refreshing drinks. Even if they didn’t bowl they could cheer on their friends, enjoy refreshments, and they could also play in the arcade. So, in the end, everybody had an awesome time and got to hang out with their friends. And it was all made possible by the CMS2 Lighthouse Team.

The CHS Class of 2013 Presents

High School News, Old News 2 Comments

Wait Until Dark: A Thriller by Frederick Knott

Get ready to be glued to the edge of your seats as the Chillicothe High School theater department presents one of the best white-knuckle thrillers ever to be written for the stage, Wait Until Dark. Wait Until Dark is a tense and suspenseful tale about three con-men, a doll full of contraband, and a blind woman whom they must trick into revealing the doll’s location. The play stars CHS senior Courtney Berry as Susy Hendrix, the blind woman in distress. Berry had the unique challenge of having to portray a handicap that she doesn’t really have. “It’s been very difficult,” she says, “Not looking at people isn’t that much of a problem, but not looking at objects I have to use or pick up has been very challenging. You have to learn to use other senses besides your eyes.”
Also leading the cast are seniors Morgan Frederick, Melinda Kepler, and Christian Barnett as the three con artists: Michelle Tallman, Sergeant Carlino, and Mr. Roat respectively. “It’s been really hard playing Michelle,” says Frederick, “because she is so different from who I am. She’s devious and mean, and I don’t usually act that way.” Barnett found finding his character more fun. “He’s a complete sociopath and it’s fun to be someone who’s just so creepy. He gets to play all these games with Susy and enjoys making her afraid.”
Among the other supporting roles is senior Angelique Gabrielle who plays Gloria, a neighbor of Susy’s. “She starts out as a real brat because she’s 12 years old and just started wearing glasses and she isn’t sure how to cope with it yet,” says Gabrielle, “but by the end she helps Susy and becomes something of a hero.” Rounding out the cast are Katy Ferguson, Jenni Bennett, Xavier Q. Newsome, Bailey Mosely, and Gabby Goshorn as policemen and Logan McCord as Sam Hendrix, Susy’s photographer husband.
If you enjoy a good thrill and want to support Chillicothe High School Theater, come to Wait Until Dark which will be performed March 8th and 9th at 7pm in the CHS/CMS auditorium. It’s sure to be a scream.   This is recommended for a PG audience.  Preview
(Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students, children, and senior citizens).
