Varsity Revue has been a Homecoming tradition for decades at Lake Highlands High School. This talent show is a great opportunity for students from all walks of life to showcase their skills and gifts with friends, family, and others from the community.
“Varsity Revue was a great way for a bunch of talents and groups to be represented,” Will Donnell, a junior at LHHS, said. “There was never a dull moment and it was really cool to see all the talent our school is filled with.”
This year, Varsity Revue was made up of two acts, each consisting of 10 performances, followed by a brief intermission, in which the Homecoming Court was announced. School organizations and teams took part in the event, as well as individual students or stand-alone groups. The talents showcased ranged from poetry, singing, dancing, and more.
“I absolutely love Varsity Revue because it’s such a great opportunity for people to share their talents and passions with the community of Lake Highlands,” Claire Eastman, a junior member of Espree, said.
The first performance was Thursday, Oct. 17. The second show was Oct. 19, the night of the Homecoming dance. Having two performances allowed students to attend the show that works best for them during the busy week leading up to Homecoming.
“Students had obviously put a lot of time and hard work into making their performances a success,” Carly Haggard, a freshman and band student, said.
The students that participated in the 2019 Varsity Revue went above and beyond. The wide range of talents that were shown are just one example of how gifted our community is. As this tradition continues, the Lake Highlands community can expect to see its youth rise to greatness.
