October 18-23 was an incredible week at Perkiomen, as we celebrated our inaugural Arts Week on campus. The Arts Week programming consisted of six days of workshops, performances and activities to celebrate our creative talents on campus.
Every day from 2:20-3 p.m., students had the opportunity to participate in faculty-led arts workshops in a variety of different disciplines. Selections included Raku pottery with Ms. Rodgers, improv with Mr. Devey and line dancing with Mr. Williams. Students had an amazing time either participating in something they love or learning something new.
On Wednesday night, Perkiomen’s student musicians participated in the fall concert, attended by a full audience on Schulz Plaza. Groups such as Choir, the Rock Band and the Dance Team contributed pieces to the program. Additionally, various soloists performed personal selections. The outdoor location made the concert even more special. Thank you to Ms. Finnerty for working so hard to put this show together!
On Friday and Saturday night, after a full week of tech rehearsals, the cast and crew of Clue performed. It might have been cold outside, but that didn’t stop the Perkiomen community from packing the tennis courts to support our theater program. The show was incredibly funny, and it was a great way to wrap up our Arts Week fun. Hailey Tobin ‘22 (Miss Scarlet) said the following about her experience in this production: “My favorite part of the Clue experience was the way that we all got so comfortable in our characters so that we were able to improvise on stage and interact with the audience in a way that was natural to us.” Special congratulations to our fall play seniors and to Mr. Flood and Mr. Jones for all of their hard work.
Thank you to all members of the Perkiomen community for coming together during Arts Week to support our singers, actors, dancers and artists on campus!
