On November 8th and 9th, 2018, our school hosted our third annual art celebration and fundraising event — ARTrageous 2018.
This two night event featured a live and silent auction on Thursday. Former North Carolina Poet Laureate, Shelby Stephenson, was on hand to entertain the crowd.
On the second night of the event, art was celebrated in all forms from food, dancing, live music, written and spoken word, to gallery art and live drama performances.
Our fabulous TLC! GrowZone Players performed a one-act play. These young actors always steal the show and give audiences a great preview of the spectacular performances you’ll see at our annual Spring Musical. This year’s play, The Wolf Who Was a Vegetarian, and Other Slightly Bizarre Stories featured the work of North Carolina Playwright Susan Steadman, seen in the photo above.
The last post recapped the awesome event in November, ARTrageous, which featured art in all forms and concluded with a one-act play from our GrowZone Players. The play was St. George and the Dragon, written and adapted by school drama director, Ryan Bender.
The GrowZone Players are our troupe of actors. Students in 5th-8th grades have the opportunity each year to choose the drama elective and, as such, audition for roles in the annual fall one-act play and the spring musical.
This year’s one-act play told the story of a king, a dragon and a band of royal court misfits that ultimately saved the day. It was laugh-out-loud funny, well performed and pure entertainment for all in attendance.
The ever growing and changing list of members of our GrowZone Player troupe never cease to amaze audiences with their performances. They manage to take a script and bring it to life in a skilled and professional manner far exceeding their individual ages.
Be sure to take every opportunity to see the GrowZone Players’ productions. They are not to be missed!
On November 17, 2017, our school hosted our second annual art celebration and fundraising event. Last year it was called our Art Gala. This year the name changed to ARTrageous.
The evening included gallery art from students, teachers and community members as well as writing performers, local musicians Elise and Micah McCool, the John C. Campbell Folk School Dancers and Band. The evening concluded with a hilarious performance by TLC’s own GrowZone Players in a one-act play titled, St. George and the Dragon.
