AHS to host variety show

Published 12:00 am Friday, April 11, 2003

Music, magic, comedy and dance are just a few of the talents set for this year's variety show at Austin High School.

Twenty-five acts are scheduled for the Monday night show. Music has the majority, with bands, solos, duets and vocal performances planned, but there are other forms of entertainment as well. A magic show, monologue and comedy routine are a few of the acts that insure the variety holds true to its name.

"We're show-casing many seniors this year that are really talented singing and playing instruments," junior Cody Wyant said.

Wyant will be backing up an act with cello music as well as playing a role as an emcee, but his main involvement in the show comes on the organizational side of things. He is president of Fusion, the school's diversity club. This was the first year that a student organization was responsible for sponsoring the event. As president, Wyant took on many of those duties.

"It has been very fun, but it has been very hectic, trying to organize 25 acts, get the sound and lights in and get everyone in for practice," he said.

Christine Wytaske, ESL teacher and advisor, said she has had a lot of people inquiring about the show. She also said the array of talents "covers the gamut."

"I think we're going to have an excellent show to put on, and I hope we have a good turnout," she said. "It's been a good show in the past, so I think it's going to be a good time."

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Monday in Knowlton Auditorium. Tickets are $3 for students and $5 for adults and are available now at the cashier's window. They can also be bought the night of the show at the door.
