However, visit the school’s website, for the winner’s names and pictures of the event. Since it’s the end of the year, the graduating theatre students are given the stage and the staff’s full attention to make their last bow on May 31 on our school stage. This year, the last bow banquet was cunningly named the “Final Fiesta.” The banquet was planned by the junior advanced theatre students with some help from theatre teacher, Ms. Manassas. During the banquet the parting seniors will receive sarcastic gifts from peers along with recognition from Manassas herself. Seniors will be corded and given the opportunity to deliver a farewell speech as everyone enjoys their fiesta-themed food.
