Theater Friday Or Saturday The phrase "Dinner and a Show" is getting taken to a whole new level as Julian High School prepares for its Spring Dinner Theater! The High School Theater Club has been working hard at "Reading Aunt Louise's Will", a mystery play by Dick Laffin. The show will be performed on both Friday, May 11th and Saturday, May 12th in the Julian High School multi- purpose room at 6:30 pm. Dinner theater is definitely most popular "in mystery form. For those that are unfamiliar with the wonderful Dinner Theater Mystery game here's how it works: the play starts as people are sitting at their tables, starting on their salads. Characters are introduced (usually pretty unusual and suspicious), and the plot is laid out for the audience. Then, there is a dinner break. The audience gets to enjoy their delicious meals (Julian High School's ASB will be preparing Mexican food on Friday night), while the play takes a short intermission. Once dinner calms down, the play resumes and the storyline gets more and more complicated and interesting. This is all the rising action to the "crime" that will be committed "later that evening". Right before the crime is committed, though, the play ends and the narrator takes control. He or she explains that each table will get a newspaper report, explaining the crime that was committed. by Jordan Affeldt-Cruz Then each character will be walking around the tables with clues for sale. Every table can buyas many clues as they desire to help them accurately solve the mystery. The table who comes up with the correct solution first wins a prize. It's as simple as that! (Or is it?) This dinner theater is a great way for JHS students to enjoy the benefits of theater, since there was no drama class or Spring Musical this year. Performing Arts have always been a strong point of Julian High School and it's great to see that they can still find ways to show their creativity even without the comfort of our main theater (which is not to be used until renovations are done). It just goes to show, the arts shine through in Julian no matter what obstacles are thrown towards them. All proceeds from the dinner theater on Friday night will go straight to Julian High School's Associated Student Body (ASB), and proceeds on Saturday night will go to the Julian Methodist Church. So if you"re looking for some good food and great entertainment, come on out and enjoy the show! Tickets are on sale at the high school office at $25 per person, $15 per child, and $60 for families (tickets will also be available at the door). Come support your local talents, fill up your tummies, and have fun solving the mystery!

At a special Music on the Mountain event on Tuesday, May 15, at 6:00 pm, the featured "artist" is a 22-person college choir and band from Denton, Texas, /-;,lSed fche Seraphim Choir. This group, led by their music director, Trevor Shaw, and the Wesley Band, is part of the Denton Wesley Foundation's music ministry of the University of North Texas. Clinton Bray will be the accompanist. The choir has traveled extensively, and has performed across the United States, Ireland, and England. The performance at the Julian Library will be a southern gospel program, Gospel Mass, composed by Dr. Robert Ray. Prior to the 30-minute cantata, the students who also play and sing in smaller groups will play original pieces. The Gospel Mass is Dr. Rayls interpretation of two thousand years of liturgical tradition with the more contemporary music of the African-American Church: The composer states: "It is my desire to combine centuries of old traditions of Mass settings with sounds of the contemporary Black Church. The move from Latin to English created new opportunities for composers to express their feelings about the texts of the Ordinary of the Mass. I wanted everyone to experience the sense of joy and celebration' that is generally felt in true African-American worship". Yes, there are some Julian connections to this choir coming from Texas. Cammy Gaston is Campus Minister and Director of the Denton Wesley Foundation located on the UNT Campus. Cammy is also the sister of our librarian, Colleen Baker. While attending SDSU, Cammy also worked summers at Camp Cedar Glen here in Julian, where the choir will be staying.

She graduated from San Diego State University with a BA degree and SMU Perkins School of Theology with her Masters' and is an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church. She is frequently quoted as saying, "1 love my job!" The music director for the Seraphim Choir, Trevor Shaw, is a graduate of the UNT College of Music.
