Twelfth Night is one of my favorite plays by William Shakespeare. It is a comedy that is believed to have been written around 1601-02 as a Twelfth Night’s entertainment for the close of the Christmas season. So it seems appropriate that it be the fall play presented by Fresno Pacific Theater.

Even as a life long resident of Reedley, CA and a member of the media, there are things in Reedley that I am not aware of. Earlier this year I was approached by someone about doing an article about Kings Canyon High School (KCHS) and set out to find out exactly what KCHS was because I honestly had no idea. This led me to my interview with Randy Bessey, Ed.D., Program Administrator at KCHS which I am sharing with you today! I am glad I went on this journey to learn more and hope you will go on it with me now–you won’t regret it!

Teachers are much more than just educators. They inspire, create, and encourage greatness from the people around them. Whether it’s investing in their students to strive for success or simply by instructing complex ideas that help them grow intellectually. They shape the lives of our community in grand ways and are deserving of an immense amount of recognition, more than what they usually receive. We would like to recognize one of those teachers who has positively influenced the lives of many, and has changed the community for the better: RHS Calculus teacher Don Friesen.

I have to admit that up until this weekend I had never seen a Sam Shepard play, but I had heard a lot of great things about them. So when I saw that Fresno State was performing the Sam Shepard play A Particle of Dread, I was eager to see it.

by Camryn Orosco



The first week of this school year Mr. Ryan Alcoser had all of his students participate in a competition to see who could build the highest tower out of spaghetti, tape, and string. At the time, it was an exciting, albeit frustrating, activity, but students had difficulty understanding its purpose or application to school. It was only in hindsight that students realized they had been “tricked” into learning.

That day, the seniors arrived at the school at eight o’clock to rehearse the ceremony. That night, at eight o’clock, they walked down the football field in green and white gowns, in the presence of over five thousand family and friends. There was a lot of happy and sad tears before and after the ceremony.

Immanuel High School drama students are bringing the courtroom to the stage this spring, under the direction of Mr. Rick Robbins. They will be performing The Night of January Sixteenth, a legal drama written by Ayn Rand that takes place in 1930s New York City. It follows the three-day trial for the murder of Bjorn Faulkner, a wealthy businessman who may or may not have been honest and upstanding when he was alive.

Heathers: The Musical At Fresno State

by Destiney Warren



The University Theatre’s production of Heathers: The Musical in Fresno is one you don’t want to miss. While dark humor is a fickle craft, this cast managed to hit all the comedic moments perfectly. I had never seen this play, but it has been a cult classic for so long that I was wary of the love that everyone seemed to have for it (Oh, the cynic in me), but after this performance, I’m sold.

Parent-teacher conferences are a symbol of dread for many teenagers, but for some, these meetings last beyond the classroom and all the way to the dinner table: when your teacher is also your parent.
