Park City High Wins Six Nominations for ‘The Addams Family’

Park City High School’s Theater Department has received six nominations for its musical, “The Addams Family,” performed earlier this fall. This is the second year in a row PCHS have best nominated for Best Musical.

Nominations include:

–Best Musical

–Best Supporting Actress: Tori Kenton (Pugsley Addams)

–Best Cameo: Katie Lobrot (Grandma Addams)

–Best Costume Design

–Best Lighting

–Best Orchestra

“To be nominated for Best Musical two years in a row is amazing,” said Rick  Kimball, drama teacher and director of the show. Last year PCHS was nominated for “Little Women.”

Performances from more than 70 schools from throughout Utah were judged by theater professionals who traveled across the state to adjudicate high school productions. Park City competed against some schools that are more than twice its size.

PCHS will perform “The Addams Family” at the Eccles Theater in downtown Salt Lake City on Saturday, May 12, as part of the Utah High School Musical Theater Awards. “These awards are like the Tony Awards for high school theater,” said Kimball.

All finalists will perform during the May 12 award ceremony. Best Actor and Best Actress will receive an all-expenses paid trip to New York City  to compete at the national level. Scholarships will be awarded to the Best Supporting and Best Cameo winners.

11 Students Win at Regional Science & Engineering Fair

Miners Take Top Spots at Design/Build Engineering Contest

 

 

 

 

 

 

This year Park City High students took top honors at Weber State University’s Design/Build Engineering Technology Competition. The competition challenges students to strengthen leadership and integrated STEM skills.

Keifer Maples, Hunter Mullen, Carl Prior, Ethan Routledge, Kenneth G Russel, and Parker Olson placed first in Architectural Design. PCHS architectural design teams made a tremendous effort this year and groups spent many hours after school in the class lab and in meetings with local architects and builders to prepare for this event.  Students had to convert two 40-foot shipping containers into a tiny house and showcase the entire design build process. The team developed a complete set of architectural plans and constructed a physical and computer-generated model to accurately depict their design.

Hunter Way, Graydon Russell, and Will Watkins placed second in Engineering Design. This year’s theme was to “engineer the tools for scientific discovery.” The team designed a portable testing chamber where objects could be placed inside the core so various environmental factors could be applied to the part in a controlled setting for data collection and non-destructive testing.

Russell also placed second in Music Production. The challenge was to create a piece of music for the Technology Student Association national conference event ceremony. He composed a complete musical masterpiece using a keyboard, online composition tools, and garage band software.  His piece, “The Eagle,” told the story of the Apollo 11 launch and journey, using the original launch countdown sequence from 1969 to open the composition.

Will Watkins placed third in the Future Technology Teacher competition.  He presented a home-aid lesson on 3D printing accompanied with handouts, manipulatives, guided notes, and other study tools. He was well prepared to teach and answer questions from his panel of judges pertaining to his lesson. Watkins has been a huge asset to the PCHS engineering program,

Mercedes Howard placed third in Photographic Technology. This year’s theme was, “The Battle Between Nature and Technology—Who Wins?” Howard created a portfolio of images and a resume to be entered into the semifinalist round. This was PCHS’s first year competing in this event where students demonstrate understanding and expertise in using photographic imaging technology processes to covey a message based on the theme.

“We are so proud of all our CTE students who competed.  This was a great experience and we are excited for future competitions,” said teacher Jordan Ulrich.
