Lauderdale County School District/ Meridian Community College Arts and Letters 2016-2017 Performing Arts Production
Lauderdale County's Superintendent of Education
Superintendent Randy Hodges has a vision for all students with a desire for involvement in Performing Arts. His vision has grown over the years and been made possible by the partnership formed with The Performing Arts Department at Meridian Community College. The partnership works well; all involved work hard to offer an annual production for students to showcase their talents. The yearly play takes hours of practice and brings the community together for another unforgettable performance.
The past performances have proven that Lauderdale County has a bright future with our talented, young teens. Our first production in 2009, "The Wiz", set the precedence of what was to come. In 2010, our students excelled in their performance of "AIDA", followed in 2011 with their rendition of "Back to the 80's". Without disappointment, the 2012 performance of "Disco Inferno" proved once again that there would be no stopping our most talented students. The bar was raised in 2013 with the hit "Guys and Dolls" as our students performed with a live orchestra for the first time. The performance in 2014 allowed us to revisit our past with a grand version of "All Shook Up" and the performance in 2015, a family classic known as "Beauty and the Beast", included students in middle and high school. Those same aged students performed "Carnival" in 2016 and proved that all of our students come together when it's time for the annual Performing Arts play. When the upcoming play was written, it was inspired by the onstage/offstage battling of husband and wife actors. It will call on our performers to reach deep to pull-off this musical comedy. The 2017 production, "Kiss Me Kate", surely will be another unforgettable performance.
