Theatre, music, dance at SAS

The month of May started off with a bang as the Sullivan acting class put on their yearly production.

This year they chose Big Rock at Candy’s Mountain, a play about a small town girl who helps realize a boy who’s struggling in his father’s shadow realize his dream of making it on his own.

Cherish Dufresne played the lead extremely well, carrying the audience through the emotional highs and lows of the play. Jack Scheck played Adam with perfect comedic timing, leaving the audience in stitches.

Later on in the month, the community and Salmon Arm Secondary grads rallied at GM to raise over $4,000 to go towards graduation.

Near the end of the month, the musical theatre class put on the production Annie with precise execution. The play received great feedback through sold out nights and standing ovations. The talented class perfectly recreated the classic musical numbers such as “The Hard Knock Life” and “Tomorrow.”

The lead, Ali Balloun, won over the hearts of many as the orphan Annie by singing her heart out through every number. Sidney Pullin played the infamous Mrs. Hannigan perfectly, cynicism and all.

Lastly, the month ended with the famous Big Band Dance, a dance where bands from throughout the district play jazz throughout the night. Many soloists, vocalists, and budding musicians performed at the dance. The crowd was even treated to a dance number performed by the Just for Kicks dancers to the tune “Mary Ann”, a rocking samba.

The Teacher’s Band played last, electrifying the crowd and prompting an encore.

As the we look forward to summer, the graduating class, in conjunction with the leadership class, will be putting on a car wash and barbecue for the community. This will be happening June 17 at Lakeshore Car Wash.
