Senior Show displays Class of 2015 talent

The annual Senior Show at Ludlow High School was held on March 12 and 13 at 6:30 p.m.

The Class of 2015 Senior Show is a production where the students performed various skits and acts that they wrote and put together themselves. There were also several musical numbers involving dances, such as the boys number, the girls number, and the opening and closing numbers of the show.

According to senior show advisor Kathleen Marino, rehearsing for the show was tricky this year due to the snow days cutting into the first three rehearsals for the boys number, girls number, and the opening and closing numbers.

Additionally, rehearsals could not begin until after the second term ended, and the show had to be done before spring sports begin, according to Marino.

Despite being pressed for time to get the show ready, Marino remained optimistic and was impressed with the work of the seniors.

“In just two rehearsals they have learned both the opening and closing numbers, and now they just have to get their boys and girls acts together,” she said, a week before the show.

The skits this year included the usual mix of pop culture, news, and jokes from school and around Ludlow, along with several original ideas.

“It is so much fun seeing some of these kids in a different role than I am used to seeing many of them in the classroom or through sports,” Marino said.

Some of the skits included “Hipster TimeMachine,” with Alexis Casagrande; “LHS or Prison” and “Deflategate,” both with Connor Doherty; “Bromance,” with Baily Jones and Jessica Sanches; “Trivia Crack,” with Joe Forzano; and “How to be a Kardashian,” with Kelsey Jordan, Molly Palatino, Kendall Chase, and Olivia Santos.

This is the second year that the show was held on a Thursday and Friday, compared to years in the past when the show has been held on Friday and Saturday. Marino explained that the reason for this change is because “the last few years, we found that we were struggling selling out tickets for Saturday night, so we thought maybe we would try a school night and maybe encourage some more students to come.”

Last year, the date changed worked out pretty well in the senior class’s favor, as the Thursday night show came close to selling out. The seniors hoped for the same turnout for this year.
