Statesboro High School is embracing this spring by educating its students and the community in the arts.  A stroll down the Fine Arts hall at SHS will open one’s ears to the sound of musicians preparing for their debut in the Cherry Blossom Festival, or chorus members rehearsing for large group performances.  Students and faculty also work diligently to host a variety of events on campus for everyone to enjoy.  

This March, the SHS Drama Department will perform a live rendition of Peter Pan.  Watch with awe as students transform the stage into a magical experience that is entertaining for all ages.  Peter Pan, Wendy, and the rest of the crew will engage audience members with enchanting matinees on March 15 and 16 at 9 a.m.  Admission for parents and students is $2.  Public performances will be hosted in the SHS auditorium on March 17 at 7 p.m. and on March 18 at 2 p.m.  General admission is $5 and tickets can be purchased at the school prior to the shows.  In addition to these events, the SHS Drama Department will put on student matinees of Mary Poppins on April 26-27 at 9 a.m.  Public shows are on April 28 at 7 p.m. and April 29 at 2 p.m.  The performances are under the direction of Eddie Frazier, assisted by student directors Harlie Carter and Marissa Hendrix.

SHS will also host the third annual Sidewalk Arts Festival on March 17 from 9 a.m. to noon. The purpose of the event is to show how much of an impact art has on the community by creating positive memories for youth.  It is a tradition that includes everyone, come rain or shine. Individuals can bring their own chalk or use the materials provided by SHS.  Enter a world of color and compete for a chance to win prizes.  High school competitors that win will advance to the Savannah College of Art and Design’s (SCAD) sidewalk arts festival in April.

As the semester continues, the SHS band will perform a concert on April 17 in the SHS auditorium.   Symphonic winds will play a level six concert that includes pieces like “One Life Beautiful” and a Sousa march.  Complementary to this, the concert band will perform a level four piece entitled “Earth Dance.”  Following the spring concerts, band boosters will have a yard sale at the SHS practice field on May 5 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.  

So, whether you enjoy drama, vibrant music or artistic designs, Statesboro High School’s Fine Arts Department has something creative and unique for everyone.   They invite the public to join them in celebrating their hard work and traditions as they come to fruition this spring. For more information, contact the school at (912) 212-8860, or go online at https://shs-bcss-ga.schoolloop.com/.
