This year's theme for the 2018 S.O.S. (Students On Stage) was, The Show must Go On. The talent show was divided into two separate nights, both displaying 21 unique acts that consisted of: singing, dancing, and comedy. Each night displayed students from throughout Chap who shared their talents. While our amazing students on stage would get ready to go on, Chaps 2018 Emcees had something special to perform for the audience. These Emcees performed skits during the show transitions. The main acts that the Emcees performed was as teachers at Chap that are preparing to perform a musical. In this case they performed High School Musical. This year's Emcees were: Caroline Norris as Mr. Ferguson, Joe Steiner as Mr. Stowers, Brenden Gilliss as Mr. Culotta, Michelle Diller as Ms. Doyle, Cade Anderson as Ms. Lewis, Joel Thompson as Mr. Gardner, Paige Bowers as Ms. Graves, Chloe Cherro as Ms. Closs, Nathan Hile as Mr. Peterson, and Ethan McBride as Mr. Anderson. They beautifully portrayed the funny habits that these teachers around Chap have. The Emcee skits were not only about the Chaparral staff. In between there would be random skits ranging from “You’re probably from Parker” jokes to some hip rapping parents. Aside from the goofy Emcees, The S.O.S. performers put on a great show for those who watched the performance. The Chap students who sang warmed the crowds hearts with their voices and instrument playing. Many students like Katie Nelson, Izze Sajdak, Jordan Faulkner, and Brielle Taylor performed singing acts while playing the ukulele. The dancing acts of 2018’s S.O.S. were beautifully performed by students such as Mollie Steward. There were many acts as well that lightened the mood with there comedic lip sync battles, stand up and quirky magic. Overall the students of Chaparral High School did an amazing job uniting and putting on a spectacular performance for those within the Chaparral community.
