Tickets Now on Sale for Upper School Musical
Lakehill's talented musical theater students will bring the The Addams Family to the Lakehill stage on Saturday, November 10, at 7:00 p.m., and Sunday, November 11, at 2:00 p.m. A preview of the musical will be performed for students on November 9, at 8:45 a.m.
 
The Addams Family is a musical comedy with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa. Borrowing from the popular television series, Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice’s The Addams Family was nominated for two Tony Awards in 2010 including Best Original Score. The musical’s success sparked a North American and UK tour. The songs include “When You’re An Addams,” “Pulled,” “Full Disclosure,” “Happy Sad,” and “Move Toward the Darkness.” 

Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family - a man her parents have never met. If that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before - keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s "normal" boyfriend and his parents.The musical stars seniors Justin Reed as Lucas Beineke, Georgia Ferguson as Grandma, Julia Bartholow as Alice Beineke, and Bill Song as Mal Beineke; junior Elizabeth Blanchard as Morticia; sophomores Asher Chamoy as Gomez, Sophia Ganson as Wednesday, Keegan Clendenin as Fester, and Jack Pinchot as Lurch; and freshman Spencer Neill as Pugsley. The backstage crew is led by senior Kate Langley, assisted by sophomore Sarah Smith.
 
“The cast is phenomenal, and, due to the show's variety of characters, many veteran Lakehill actors are able to take on more challenging roles,” said Mark Guerra. “We are also welcoming many new actors to the stage.” 

The performance is suitable for all ages.

See the Cast List.

Don't wait! Tickets are now  available online .

Senior Spotlight
National Junior Honor Society Highlights Lakehill's Soon-to-be Graduates 

In an effort to reveal the hidden talents, personalities, and accomplishments of Lakehill's most experienced students, the National Junior Honor Society presents: 

NJHS Spotlight on Seniors
This week's senior: Macy Ellis 
Macy Ellis has attended Lakehill for thirteen years. While at Lakehill, she has participated in many activities including Cheer, Volleyball, Softball, Musical Theater, Drama, Ambassadors, Sisteens, Improv Club, French Club, International Club, and Eats and Theats.

Macy’s favorite class is World Religions because she finds the topic interesting. Her favorite memory from attending Lakehill is of the biology trip during her junior year. Macy has earned several awards and honors during her time at Lakehill, including Warrior Honor Club, "mom of the year" in the theater department, the wearer of the Gypsy Robe in Musical Theater, and, most recently, First Team All-District in Softball. The activity that she enjoys most is pitching for the Varsity Softball team.

Macy has applied to several colleges, including University of Mississippi, Louisiana State University, and University of Colorado Boulder. She plans to major in digital advertising.

Macy’s advice to younger Warriors is "Try everything that you can during your underclassmen years so that you can begin to determine what you are passionate about."

"The team put everything they learned on that court and fought for the championship every step of the way," said coach Alisyn Schreiber. "Each team member played an integral part in this season's championship."

Congratulations to our Middle School Lady Warriors on an amazing season.

Varsity and JV Volleyball
The JV Volleyball team wrapped up a successful season with a win over Yavneh on October 18. It was a straight-set victory for the team as they finished the district season on a winning streak. The team started the season off by playing several three-set matches, but worked hard to focus on finishing off matches in two sets. Congratulations to the JV team on a great season. 

The Varsity team also defeated Yavneh in straight sets on October 18. With the win, they finished 11-1 in district and won a share of the district championship. The team lost a tough tie-breaker game on October 22, against Heritage Christian, making them the #2 seed heading into the playoffs.

Stonegate Christian will visit Lakehill for a tune-up game prior to the Area Round of the State Playoffs on October 25, at 6:00 p.m. It will also be Senior Night for Tyler McCall, Julia Bartholow, and Macy Ellis, who will be honored prior to the start of the game.

Palmer lead the Warriors on offense with 150 total yards. The highlight of the evening was a 36-yard touchdown pass straight from Crow to Palmer at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
