CHS Variety Show is Saturday

Back To Front Page


The Chesterton High School Speech and Debate team cordially invites the entire community to The 2019 Variety Show, this Saturday, October 5th, at seven o’clock in the CHS Auditorium. This will be the first show of its kind to be performed on the CHS stage in over ten years.

“Once a popular student and community event, the variety show became too much for our coaching staff back in 2006. However, a string of new coaches and fresh talent on the team has brought the show back by popular demand,” said program director Chris Lowery.

Audience members can expect the evening to be half talent show and half sketch comedy, with the cast consisting of two groups. Firstly, there will be nine different acts, with CHS students showcasing various talents and competing for a cash prize. Also, a group of student emcees, in addition to hosting, will be performing comedic sketches, musical numbers, and video shorts between the acts.

“Our job is not only to introduce the talent but to entertain the audience. We have been working really hard for the past six weeks writing, organizing, and perfecting the show’s comeback,” said senior Anekah Fish.

Joining Fish will be fellow senior emcees Indigo Loving, Max Winski, George Tracy, Nathan Mullin, Gavin Bonner, and Jenna Aguilar. Junior and sophomore emcees include Lily Roberts, Mattea Sklut, Dylan Leavitt, Heidi Boltze, and Mark Jewison. Senior Ian Quinn and junior Elia Livovich will be stage managing the show.

The talent portion of the show will feature musical stylings and original songs performed by seniors Eve Senderhauf and Sage Rodriguez, sophomores Dylan Leavitt and Jayne Bartlett, and freshman Jackson Jessen. Spoken word performance will be given by seniors Jack Whitten and Ben Homan, along with a dance routine by senior AJ Stirling. Finally, the show will feature two different bands, the first composed of juniors Lily Roberts and Andrew Engel; the second piloted by senior Lukas Needham.

While the main goal of the evening is to help raise money for the CHS Speech and Debate department, there is an added bonus of coming together as a community and enjoying the various talents and humor of these many gifted Chesterton High School students. So please come and support not only the state and nationally recognized CHS Speech and Debate Team, but also come and cheer for the CHS student performers who hope to win big on Saturday night.

The 2019 Variety Show is open to the public and will begin at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.), Saturday October 5, at the Chesterton High School Auditorium. Tickets will cost 10 dollars and will be sold at the door.
