Northern Lights show choir to perform original student-written musical

The Northern Lights is an award-winning show choir from North High which has established a regional reputation for dance, voice and acting. Its spring show is written and produced by students and is a great showcase for their talents onstage and behind the scenes. (submitted photos)

In a recent dress rehearsal, the Northern Lights give their all to a ‘50s number. Onthe floor in front is Brandon Cayetano; behind him, sitting on the stage are Chelsea Ricker, Tony Boyer and Dani Saunders and behind them are Nahi Kablaoui, Annette Klomp, Lexi Scanlon, Matt Weldon, Nikki Waskosky, Mya Hunt and Josie Pieczykolan.

Every May, North High’s Northern Lights Show Choir commemorates the end of its action-packed competition circuit with its annual springtime Extravaganza Show — an original musical theater performance that within a one-month span was written, directed costumed, cast, advertised, choreographed, acted and sung by the choristers themselves.

As one would expect, they tipped their caddies well.
