Megan Bodmer, Raelyn Beams, and Justin Gayles perform with the company at Broadway Night. 

Drama Club Dazzles at Broadway Night

Could you feel the Disney love at Broadway Night? The Mount Olive Drama Club brought the magic of Disney to their annual Broadway Night on October 26th. Thirty-eight students performed, singing 26 selections from various Disney shows, including Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Frozen, Hercules, The Little Mermaid, and more!

Act 1 began with the wind ensemble performing selections from Aladdin. Many of the same student performers returned to play with the symphonic band at the start of Act 2, where they performed selections from Beauty and the Beast. Towards the end of Act 2 the wind ensemble returned to perform selections from Moana.

The singing portion of the evening commenced with "Circle of Life" from The Lion King, featuring Molly McDade and the company. As McDade and others sang on stage, the remaining cast dressed as their Disney characters entered down the aisles of the Performing Arts Center and made their way to the stage.

Act 1 continued with songs including "Someday My Prince Will Come" from Cinderella,  "Colors of the Wind" from Pocahontas, and "Reflection" from Mulan sung by Ivy Casserly, Denisse Gonzalez, and Raelyn Beams, respectively.

A truly comedic number, "Gaston" from Beauty and the Beast, was performed by Joey Boylan, Zach Weiner, and company.  Boylan and Weiner played well off of each other's comedic timing for laughs. 

Beams, a senior at MOHS, said, "I thought the Disney theme was so fun because it really got all of us excited for the trip to Disney we have coming up in the spring. My individual performance was very special to me because I have some family adopted from Asia, and while I was growing up I would watch Mulan with my aunt all the time. I've been singing 'Reflection' ever since I was in diapers! Performing that song as my first solo was truly a special experience."

Beams also got the chance to share the stage with her younger sister, Noelle, who played one of the young Anna's during the "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" number from Frozen.

Lauren Onufryk, a junior who played Elsa from Frozen, said, "It was absolutely amazing being able to perform in this year's Broadway Night. As someone who is fully obsessed with all things Disney, this show was everything I could ever ask for! Being able to play Elsa was such a dream come true and it verified my love for connecting with the audiences, especially the little kids!"

Onufryk (pictured below) had the supreme task of singing the Act 1 finale to the Frozen show-stopper, "Let It Go." Onufryk said, "'Let It Go' is one of my favorite songs as it is so empowering to not only listen to but also to sing, and it is one of my favorite songs that I've performed on stage."

An action-packed number, "Friend Like Me" featured Justin Gayles, Tyler Hamlet, and company in which Gayles as the Genie danced across the stage with the support of the company.

Max Wagner, who sang "If I Can't Love Her" as the Beast from Beauty and the Beast said it was a bittersweet Broadway Night as a senior. Wagner said, "A factor I enjoyed most about my song are the emotional possibilities you could put with it. It was a very somber, powerful song, which I quite enjoyed."

The show ended with the senior song, "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" from The Lion King. Beams said, "When choosing our senior song we had endless debates, but we all agreed 'Can You Feel the Love Tonight?' was a great choice because the song talks about how a group of friends is being split apart because they are all growing up and gaining new experiences, but in the end they know that they will all still care for each other no matter what happens. It was also a very good full circle ending since 'Circle of Life' was the opening number."

This fall the Drama Club will be putting on the dramatic play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Performances will be held on November 15th, 16th, and 17th, and ticket information can be found on the Drama Club website.

Seniors perform "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" at annual Broadway Night show.


Volunteering their time at Safe Trick-or-Treat are some of the NHS Officers: Hallihan, Barish, Lake, Shah, Devagiri, and Carroll. 

NHS charity to benefit Amnesty International

Every year the National Honor Society at Mount Olive High School selects a charity to make the focus of its fundraising efforts. The officers conduct research on various charities and select one that they find relevant and worthwhile. This year NHS has selected Amnesty International.

Current NHS Officers are President, Maya Shah; Vice President, Hannah Lake; Secretary, Thomas Barish; Treasurer, Jimmy Spaedt; Webpage Secretary, Varshitha Devagiri; Historian, Devin Hallihan; and Logistics Coordinator, Regan Carroll. Returning as NHS Advisor is ELA teacher, Mrs. Sheila Ross.

Explaining the reasoning behind their selection Carroll and Lake said, "This year we picked Amnesty International because it's an organization that encompasses human rights across the globe. We felt that human rights was an issue that was plaguing the globe as a whole, ranging from women's rights in Third World countries all the way to the refugee crises occurring in many different countries. We all felt as a whole that we could offer help to these causes through fundraising and raising awareness in our community."

Shah agreed and elaborated by saying, "Rather than donating to several smaller organizations, we wanted to provide Amnesty with the means to strategically utilize our donations where they were needed."

Carroll and Lake went on to say that they are hoping to make NHS involvement a community-wide endeavor. "We want our members to get something out of being a part of the club," they said, "not just do it because they think they have to as a requirement. Our goal is to make the club a part of the community."

Shah's goals as NHS President are "to ensure that NHS members are fully contributing to the club while having fun. I plan to organize several engaging events for the members and others to participate in while raising money for Amnesty. My goal is to make these events a success; this means members contribute to the event and profits are made from each event."

Devagiri hopes "to raise conversations surrounding the topic of human rights and get more people, specifically those of my generation, willing to reach out to the world in order to better circumstances for those without these basic human rights. I wish to pass on the understanding that all human beings must be entitled to the same rights no matter their ethnicity, gender, religion, etc."

As Vice President Lake said she wants "to bring leadership and understanding to the club" and have members voices and ideas heard so that they can contribute to the organization.

Carroll and Lake said serving as NHS officers have increased their leadership abilities: "It has taught us that being an officer of such a prestigious club does not mean simply showing face; it means doing a lot of work behind the scenes and making sure everything runs smoothly. For us this means that being a leader means offering your own time and work into the club. It also increased our abilities to listen and hear all the voices in the club because you cannot simply consider what you want, you have to consider all points."

Shah said, "My leadership abilities have improved exponentially in just the first few weeks of being a member of NHS. As president, I am learning to organize events from top to bottom while keeping track of attendance and contributions from others. I am also learning how to delegate work efficiently, especially according to the strengths of my fellow officers. I have learned the importance of planning in advance while checking up on activities in progress."

This year NHS is looking forward to school-wide events for all students, not just members, including: trivia nights, Adopt-a-Family, Panera fundraisers, pizza sales, sports tournaments, and volunteer opportunities.
