Get ready, CHS, ‘cause the annual fall production is coming up!
Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

As late December nears in Chatham High School, the holiday spirit completely takes over. During this season, playing Mariah Carey’s legendary holiday anthem is completely acceptable as is donning a holiday onesie or delightfully ugly sweater. Students dread the frigid 30-second walk into the building each morning and the inevitable piles of work their frazzled teachers will assign before the break. Luckily, some much needed relief from the hustle and bustle of the hectic holiday season is provided by PULP through their annual Poetry Festival.

Halloween is a day full of costumes, candy, and of course, being scared.  Haunted Hallway at Chatham High School was no exception.  It was held Friday, October 30th in the L-wing.  Haunted Hallway was organized by the National Art Honor Society, and much planning and preparation was needed in order to pull off such an event.  Costumes, decorations, and actors were all essential in making Haunted Hallway a success.

The Chatham High Fall Play is a staple event that many people, whether involved in the theater or not, look forward to come every November. The crew puts in a lot of effort, energy, and hard work into making a great production that interests not only the theater department, but all CHS citizens. This year, they are putting on a great showing of the intricate play Look Homeward, Angel.

Fall is football season. Traditionally, the Chatham High School student body, more commonly known as Cougar Nation, comes out to support the CHS football team every weekend. Yet, what most fans take for granted is the exceptional marching band that performs during halftime.  While most students are familiar with the band, they have no idea how much work goes into the show they perform and the competitions they take part in on a regular basis.  This year, the band has experienced major success thanks to a riveting show that captures the audience’s attention with its catchy music, epic storyline, and its inclusion of a life-sized boat, among other props.

The holiday spirit has begun to surface through CHS, as seen with the festive attire that has recently appeared and the constant desire to sing or listen to a Christmas song (most likely “All I want for Christmas is You”). However, before we leave for break, one cannot forget about our own school’s somewhat holiday tradition, the Poetry Festival.

On Friday, December 12, 2014, an overwhelming amount of talent was showcased during the Winter CPAC Performance. In fact, you would not think it possible for only a handful of students to produce so much entertainment during a two act, one and a half hour long production. Sure enough, these gifted singers, dancers, and musicians delivered an unbelievable performance with the help of a Brian Johnson who led the student operated lighting, sound, and stage crew.

One of the greatest aspects of Chatham High School is its fantastic visual and performing arts programs. From freshmen year students have the ability to pursue their interests in these fields with access to top-notch equipment and under the direction of encouraging mentors.

Sean Mccarthy, a junior at CHS, has recently been selected to play bass trombone in three prestigious groups: The Region Symphonic band, the All State Wind Ensemble and Region Jazz Band. I got a chance to meet with Sean and ask him some questions about his musical history and his overall thoughts on being inducted into these three elite groups.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… CPAC season!  Every year, the Chatham Performing Arts Club puts on a winter showcase, highlighting the students of Chatham High.  The show consists of singing, dancing, acting, and includes both school groups and individually created acts.  Year after year, CPAC brings out the best talent Chatham has to offer, and this show will be no exception.

If you think this Disney film is childish, think again! “You are never too old to see a Disney film,” CHS student Marisa Marino stated. She loved the movie so much that she went to go see it twice in theaters.

Tuba Christmas is a concert that plays holiday music for the public. The event’s purpose is to display the graceful and deep sound of the Tuba and Baritone. Tuba and Baritone players appear from all around the world to attend this once in a lifetime event. As one of the rarest instruments in a school band, the Tuba usually has the negative reputation of having a low and cartoonish sound.

On December 13th, CHS held its annual Poetry Festival in the high school auditorium. The Poetry Festival was put on by Chatham’s Pulp Literary Magazine, which publishes student artwork and writing. Despite the name, the Poetry Festival showcased an array of talent from within the high school, with music performances, poetry/prose readings, and AP Studio Art artwork all taking center stage from 10:40 a.m.

When students hear "fall play", they might think of droning Shakespeare monologues or a lack of singing and dancing. This year, however, that is certainly not the case.

What is one of the most popular, go-to forms of entertainment alive today? If you said the circus, you were far off.
