Steele said, “Being a student director has been challenging because you have to be creative, open to new ideas, and you have to be aware of a lot of things on stage all at once; but this has been a good experience, because I hope to become a film director one day.”
Mrs. Christopher said, “Often it is hard for students, who are still in a learning process themselves, to direct their own peer group, but they [Steele and Stehura] are doing really well. Passing on the skill of directing to the student directors has been a rewarding experience.”
It’s prom season, and that means dresses, tuxedos, and…masks! Geneva’s Masquerade prom will be held on May 2. It is open to all juniors and seniors of Geneva High School, though students are able to invite sophomores and students from other schools. The venue for the night is the Lodge & Conference Center at Geneva-on-the-Lake. Doors will open at 6:15 p.m., and prom will end at 11:30 p.m. Tickets are $30, and will be available for purchase April 21-25.
The ticket not only covers the cost of the dance, but also a full course dinner, including several entrée choices, assorted side dishes, dessert, and beverages. Photos will be taken and sold at the dance by Rapid Photo, and NRG DJ will provide the music.
This year, the junior class decided to start a new tradition, and elect prom royalty. In the past, there has only been a homecoming court. Students will nominate a court from the senior class, and then vote for a prom king and queen.
“We wanted to include the court to make this year’s prom even more special for the seniors,” junior class vice president Jason Downie said.
Junior class treasurer Kimberly Brumagin said,“To make prom the best it can be, our junior class is selling Malley’s chocolate bars, and they are such a big hit. To give you an example of how fast, I had a box of 36 bars first period, and I sold out by the end of third period. We hope that we can make this year’s prom a memorable one.”
