    Upcoming Musical!

    Ride the Cyclone: High School Edition

    A Liberty Bell Drama Company and Merc Playhouse production.

    In this hilarious and outlandish story, the lives of six teenagers from a Canadian chamber choir are cut short in a freak accident aboard a roller coaster. When they awake in limbo, a mechanical fortune teller invites each to tell a story to win a prize like no other — the chance to return to life. This popular musical is a funny, moving look at what makes a life well-lived.

    May 14, 15, 17, 18 at 7:00 and May 19 at 2:00 at The Merc.

    Doors open 30 minutes before.

    Tickets are $15 for general community. Limited free tickets available at the door for students, MVSD staff and for the families of the cast and crew.  Otherwise tickets can be reserved online at mercplayhouse.org

    This show is rated PG-13 and may not be suitable for young children.

    Support provided by Public School Funding Alliance, Methow Arts and The Merc Playhouse.

    Celebrating LBHS Scholastic Art and Writing Awards Recipients

    Every year, 8th grade students participate in Scholastic Art and Writing Awards (in the writing category) as part of the Humanities class. Scholastic Awards are the nation's longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for creative teens. Notable past winners include Stephen King, Joyce Carol-Oates, Truman Capote, Sylvia Plath, and Amanda Gorman.

    LBHS students participated in the West At-Large Region which includes Washington, Oregon, Idaho, California, Colorado, Montana, Utah, Wyoming, and Nevada. The competition is for grades 7-12 so our 8th graders were considered alongside seniors. Thousands of students across these nine states submitted work for consideration. Our 8th graders submitted work to different categories such as poetry, personal essay, dramatic script, and short story. Students who earn the top award, called Gold Key, will move on to be considered for a national award which will allow them to be published in the Scholastic national publication and earn a trip to New York City for a celebration of their work. Silver Key is the next level award. Honorable Mention is next.

    This year, one student, Rowan Kelley, received a Gold Key award. Rowan was awarded a Gold Key for her personal essay titled "Summers and Sailing". Rowan's essay will now be considered for a national award, which will be announced June 11. Rowan also earned an Honorable Mention award in poetry for her poem called "Admiration".

What are your plans after Liberty Bell?
After graduation I'll be getting shipped off to the Army as an Airborne Infantryman, to go jump out of airplane's for Uncle Sam.
Any advice for the younger students?
My advice to the younger generation's is to remember that if someone says "The Government would never do that!", oh yes, they would.
Go get 'em Hunter!
