Music Revue

On Mother’s Day weekend – several students joined recent high school graduate, Blake Roberts on stage.  In lieu of performing large musicals, this weekend of songs from christian to rock, from broadway to original works, proves to be a weekend worth remembering.  Come join Whippet Theatre’s presentation of A Music Revue.

Auburn Elementary Spring 2021 Program

Dear Families: Our second & third grade students at Auburn masked up and put their fins on for a short online musical entitled “Go Fish!” In keeping with the Auburn ocean theme, the students learned all of the songs in the musical. When performance time came, we divided them into three groups of about 44 students. Each group was featured on two songs to allow for distancing on stage. The kids did an outstanding job at being masked singers.🙂 Singing without a live audience and with much of their voices and expressions hidden, proved to be a challenge! However, I am incredibly grateful we have the staff and resources to be able to share our music with you online until we can gather again in the auditorium.
I would like to thank the following people who helped make this happen:
Mr. Justin Dabney, videographer
Mr. Brian Nabors, sound
The PAC student workers
Teachers: (Dana Ball, Patti White, Mandy Green, Kelsey Fuller, Jessica Crist, Sarah Rettig)
Students: (Mrs. Ball’s Red Island Crabs, Mrs. White’s Dolphins, Mrs. Green’s Sea Turtles, Mrs. Fuller’s Orcas, Miss Crist’s Clown Fish, Miss Rettig’s Blue Tang Fish)
Mrs. Kelly Kuhn, Principal
Mr. Tim Tarvin and Mr. Paul Walker
We hope you enjoy our presentation of “Go Fish!”

2021 Shelby Scholarships

SMS 7/8 Solo & Ensemble

This has been a unique year. Due to Covid, the ms band students have not had the opportunities that they normally would to perform for an audience. That being said, the primary purpose of the following video is to highlight some of what the students have been working on during this time. Due to the various protocols needing to be followed, we’ve been unable to rehearse as a full band class this year. Each day the students are split into 2 or more groups. Because of this, they were given small ensemble pieces that they could work on with the hope that they would be able to perform them at some point. This video is both the result of this endeavor as well as a way to showcase some of the students who also participated in the virtual Ohio Music Education Association Solo and Ensemble Event (an annual event in which students prepare pieces to be judged).
Many thanks to Justin Dabney, who both filmed and edited this video. We hope you enjoy the performances.

Check, Please!

Shelby High Schools’ Whippet Theatre returned to the live stage performing Jonathan Rand’s Check Please. on April 16 & April 17. This one act show followed a series of blind dinner dates that couldn’t get any worse — until they do. Could there possibly be a light at the end of the tunnel? Thanks to the gracious donation of the Russell and Mary Gimbel Foundation, Check Please was able to be produced. Due to Covid protocols, our audience had been limited to friends and family. The cast included the following SHS students

Shelby Choir Program Holiday Selections

This video is a collaboration of students involved with the Shelby High and Middle School Choral Department. Individual students have provided footage that was combined in the overall program. It is our hope that this concert provides not only some entertainment, in these tough times, but encouragement that together we can be resilient and strong. Have a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
