Performing Arts Accolades

 Marvin Ridge Band students earn top honors in the district!  Twenty Marvin Ridge Band students were selected for South Central All-District Band.  Marvin Ridge had the highest number of students selected for this prestigious honor.  From flute to tenor sax to tuba, Marvin Ridge is earned prestigious honors. Band students work diligently to prepare for auditions for these honors both in school and out of school.  The MRHS Staff congratulate these students and we know that the entire student body and community are so proud of their achievements. 

Marvin Ridge Theatre students auditioned for the upcoming Spring Musical, Once Upon a Mattress.  Congratulations to students selected for a role in the play and to those that will be working behind the scenes for what should be a hilarious musical.  Mr. Winston Sims, Marvin Ridge Director, has begun rehearsals for the actors and will work on set design during the second semester.  Once Upon a Mattress has wonderful songs, a storyline of royal courtship, and general shenanigans.  If you thought you had heard the story of “The Princess and the Pea” you will definitely want to see this production so that you know what really happened.   For more information and to purchase tickets please visit the Theatre page by clicking on Academics on the MRHS homepage and then Theatre Arts.
