Just two weeks into the school year, nearly 70 students began preparing for the annual Mitchell High School musical.
The students — actors, the technical crew and pit crew — are the third group at MHS to perform Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic, “The Sound of Music.”
Student musicians will get a chance to play with professionals Tuesday at the second annual Palace City Jazz Festival.
Some of the best musicians in the region will team up to educate middle and high school jazz bands from 11 schools at an all-day music event held on the Dakota Wesleyan University campus in Mitchell.
Mitchell theater students are out to send a message in this year’s one-act play performance.
This year’s one-act cast is performing “Behold an Empty Room,” a script from the 1960s that tells the story of putting a parent in a nursing home, in this year’s state contest.
It’s a new season for Friend de Coup members, and they’re ready to show Mitchell what they’ve got.

Friend de Coup will celebrate the gift of music Thursday with its first live show of the 2010-2011 season.
The Mitchell High School show choir returns to the stage for the annual Up With Show at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday at the Mitchell High School auditorium. Tickets for the show are $8 and can be bought at the south ticket booth in the high school during school hours and from 3 to 7 p.m. today through Friday.

Graves, who in February introduced a plan to eliminate the gymnastics program at the high school and replace it with competitive cheer and dance, on Monday asked for — and received — the school board’s approval to spend $400,000 extra on Joe Quintal.
