Students to perform skits, sing songs Thursday during 'Wildcat Weview'

Event is planned at Wakarusa Elementary School

WAKARUSA —  Folks in the Wakarusa community will soon have a rousing remedy for the melancholy and monotony of winter. On Thursday, visitors to Wakarusa Elementary will be treated to a spectrum of talents woven throughout a musical celebration that has become a beloved annual tradition.

The 2013 “Wildcat Weview” will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the school’s gymnasium. There is no charge for admission.

Several students are assisting with stage crew responsibilities, working alongside program coordinator Shawn Skaggs, vocal music teacher at Wakarusa Elementary. Stage crew members include Chloe Hostetler, Elodee Jackson, Allison Nettrouer, Asher Yoder, Maddie Kuhn and Lilyan Kauffman. Trent Edwards will be operating the lights, while Thames Brubacher will be working the curtain.

 Three fifth-grade students will be hosting the “Wildcat Weview,” appearing intermittently throughout the show to introduce the acts and provide comedic interludes. The trio of MCs are Kylie Weaver, Taylor Hartman and Emily Coleman. Their humorous routines are inspired by the classic country-themed television show “Hee Haw.”
