Graves Hi's Tenth Curtain Call concludes

Graves County High School students, from left, Ben Mullins, Todd Shiflett, Jackson Sanderson, and Charlie Mason bring the district’s Performing Arts Center Seasonal Series to a rousing conclusion with “Blackout,” a percussion piece Shiflett wrote. He and his fellow musician-friends performed it in a way reminiscent of the Blue Man Group and the stage play Stomp. Nearing a full house with some 450 audience members in attendance, the final show of the season also was the high school’s tenth annual Curtain Call. Every year, the GCHS Fine Arts and Health Sciences Academy presents a joint performance of its choir, bands, orchestra, drama, and forensics programs in a variety show. This year’s theme was “All the World’s a Stage,” based a Shakespeare line. In addition to the high school students, special guest-performers included students from Graves County Central Elementary School’s widely-traveled and nationally-recognized Drama Club and Lowes Elementary’s exciting and growing drama club.
