With a total of 14 acts, the Spring Hill Theater Department held a variety show on Dec. fifth.

The show consisted of multiple singers and musicians, a performance from a few members of the Spring Hill Color Guard, the Spring Hill Shenanigang, the Spring Hill FFA, a cheeto artist, and the Fine Arts Four including the theater department’s very own Brett Buffum.

The show had been very publicized but there was opposing school functions taking place at the same time causing a conflict of interest. Students and teachers had to decide if they wished to cheer on wrestlers or the variety show performers. 

“I’m frustrated by the lack of attendance, so we need to figure out how to improve that; whether it means moving the date or doing something different in our promotions,” Brett Buffum, theater teacher, said. “It’s a great event.  Everyone who attends has a great time and talks about it long after. We just need to get more people to experience it and support our awesome performers.” 

The show went on despite the lack of audience members. 

“I think the variety show went really well with a lot of energy,” Alyssa Sherron, 11, said. I was a little nervous before because I cared about it, but not too much. I had a lot of fun with it and couldn’t stop smiling!” 

All surveyed performers and audience members alike enjoyed the show and felt it ran smoothly. 

“I’ve gone [to the show] for three years. This year, the show was amazing,” Benjamin Carrel,12, said. 

Most of the audience in attendance consisted of parents and family members. 

“I wish I could’ve gone to the Variety show but I was too busy. I heard it was really good,” Jordyn Anderson, 10, said “Hopefully next year I can go!”
