The Art of Connecting – High schools showcase the arts

-

This month I chose to write about how students are an integral part of the Naperville community. For starters, two high schools in the area are putting on great shows and fundraisers that everyone can appreciate.

haselhorstAlthough Naperville Central was my biggest rival in high school, I cannot deny the talent that the students possessed. At 7PM, Thurs., March 6; and at 8 PM Fri., March 7 and Sat., March 8, NCHS will be performing its spring play, “The Foreigner.” It is a story about two men from England that come to America and get themselves into all sorts of trouble. The cost is $5 at the door. Naperville Central is located at the corner of West Street & Aurora Ave.

For more information, call the Theatre Central office at (630) 420-3885.

For people who love arts and crafts, the Waubonsie Valley High School Band Boosters are sponsoring their 9th Annual Craft Fair and Vendor Showcase, 9AM-3PM, Saturday, March 15. All the proceeds generated from this not-for-profit go to the WVHS Band Programs.

Over 70 artists, crafters, and vendors will be showcasing their talents. There also will be concessions, a bake sale and raffle. Adults are $2; Students, $1; and Children under 5 are free.

This showcase is a very popular event, so come early. WVHS is located at 2590 Ogden Ave. in Aurora. If you have any questions, contact Janette Siemienkowicz at wvbandcraftfair@gmail.com.

There are a lot more fundraisers and events happening at the high schools and other venues around Naperville. Be sure to check out www.positivelynaperville.com for a list of many of them.

As a huge fan of the arts, I can say these fundraisers and shows are not just for the students and parents to enjoy, but for everyone. Try to attend one and see for yourself!
