Springville High performed “Hello, Dolly” for the 2012 musical. The cast consisted of 50 students and the pit (orchestra and band) had 30 students. The musical took place in the 1920’s in New York City and Yonkers, New York. The plot was a lady, Dolly Levi, who is a match maker. While matching up a current client, Horace Vandergelder, she falls for him herself. So, she will do anything in her power to get him, even if that means matching others up, almost getting arrested, and much more.

Jennifer Bate was the leading lady, Mrs. Dolly Levi, a matchmaker, in search of finding herself a perfect match. She was an exquisite, beautiful actress and singer. Bate made the musical fun and entertaining. Matt Niu was the male lead, Mr. Horace Vandergelder, a grumpy old millionaire, one of Mrs. Levi’s clients looking for a love life of his own. Other leads were Sky Kawai (Cornelius Hackle), Mallory Longhurst (Irene Malloy), Marie Terry (Minnie Faye), and Jonathan Luther (Barnaby Tucker).

The song the majority of the cast enjoyed and had fun performing the most was “Put on Your Sunday Clothes.” But, the most challenging to learn with the entire cast was “Hello, Dolly.”

“The hardest number when it came to dancing to learn was definitely the waiter’s gallop. There was a lot going on in that scene and the music at times was hard to keep up with. Especially, since we can’t keep count out loud,” said Jen Krustch.

“I loved it, it was super fun and witty. Understanding and studying the lines and humor in the play was a blast, it all tied together and created a great story,” said Bate.

“The hardest thing for me was when I had to become like my character, mean, grumpy and serious. Because I’m not that way at all,” commented Nui.

“I can say for myself that the play was a lot of fun. But it took a lot time and dedication from everyone, including the directors, the pit, the cast, the tech crew and parents. It was stressful at times but it was all worth it. I would definitely do a musical again,” said Amanda Sly.

“My favorite part of the play was when Mallory and Sky kissed in the court scene,” said Terry.

The play overall was a great show, put on by Springville High School students. Special thanks to the directors.

Boys Cross Country Top Ten at State

By Tyler Ercanbrack, Team Captain
State XC 2012 Boys State

Springville High’s Boys Cross Country finished another successful season by placing 10th at the State Championships on October 19th. Leading the team was junior Owen Gardner who finished 16th overall and senior Tyler Ercanbrack who was 27th.

This was one of the fastest years ever at the very demanding three mile course at Sugar House Park in Salt Lake City. Owen’s time of 16:09 would have placed in the top five any other year and was the fourth fastest time run by a SHS runner.

This was the team’s seventh appearance in the last eight years at state. Other members of the team competing included senior Jantzen Dalley, juniors Griffin Park, Helaman Burrows, Brenn Manwaring, and sophomore Stephen Dangerfield. Eight of the top ten runners from this year’s
team will be returning next season.
