Seniors (from left to right) Margaret McGuirk, Matt Wagner, Kirsten Kyburz, and April Moscati pay attention to the senior leaders at the Variety Show meeting. The show will be Nov. 26 and 27.

“We really thought the seniors deserved another chance,” Variety Show moderator Bob Schick said.

The dates, Nov. 26 and 27, are set for the return of the Senior Variety Show. According to SAC Vice President Austin Schap, planning for the show is both well under way and well counseled.

“All the important dates and times for show-related events have been decided, we are right on schedule for meeting our required milestones,” Schap said.

The Variety Show is a senior class production which shows the talents of students within good taste for all of the JC community to enjoy. For the past two years, the Variety Show has been canceled but is returning this fall.

According to senior class Member at Large Emily Cassidy, “Seniors are pumped for the return of the show.” Planning for the Variety Show falls under the jurisdiction of senior class officers Emily Cassidy, Karly Horn, and Cole Alban.

The officers meet at 7:20 a.m. on Wednesday, working together in promoting general show awareness and making sure information about the show is available to seniors on both physical and electronic media. They also work on scheduling important events in relation to the show and keeping the show on schedule, on track, and in good taste. “The two meetings with everyone involved and our weekly meetings have been very productive,” Cassidy said.

“I feel like we have a really hard working group of people behind it who want to have a great, successful Variety Show,” Cassidy said. “We are ahead of the game at this point and I’m excited to see the talent brought at the tryouts.”
Schick also could not be happier with the way things are running so far.

“Right now we are in the process of getting people exciting and involved but we are way ahead of schedule,” he said.

According to Schap, the Variety Show has received a lot of positive feedback, and that feedback continues to grow. He loves how people are really excited to be a part of this and, as a result, the ideas for the skits and the musical numbers are abundant and original.

“We have a very creative group of people who are really putting lots of effort in this,” Schick said.

“We know from past shows that the more seniors that get involved, the better the show will be, and we are determined to make this show the best we possibly can,” Schap said.

As for changes in the show, according to Schap, “there has been no huge change. It is still the senior class coming together to produce a show of talent and humor about JC within good taste for all the JC community to enjoy.”
