Graduation - Friday, May 19, 2017

This year, we have had to make a few changes to Graduation. We are so sorry about the late notice but we just received notification. Our good friends at Wofford College have scheduled a special event for their students and families, it just so happens to fall on the weekend of our graduation. Therefore, we did need to make some 2 slight changes to our graduation plans in order to accommodate both parties. 1.) SHS graduation start time needed to be moved from 7:30pm to 8:00pm. 2.) The graduation will be held inside Benjamin Johnson Arena, which means each graduating student will receive 6 tickets at graduation rehearsal. Thanks so much for your understanding.

Sister Act, The Musical is Coming to the Chapman Cultural Center

Rejoice! Spartanburg School District 7 will present SISTER ACT, A DIVINE MUSICAL COMEDY at the Chapman Cultural Center from May 25 – 28, 2017. A tribute to sisterhood, friendship, creativity and courage, Sister Act is the feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet! Featuring original music by Tony- and eight-time Oscar winner, Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.
Deputy Superintendent Dr. Terry Pruitt will direct the show. He has an extensive background in the arts having served as a band director, choral director, drama teacher, and church choir director. Dr. Pruitt has directed many community and school theatre productions during his career and this will make the eighth show he has directed in District 7, including last year’s highly successful production of All Shook Up. Dr. John Moody, Music Department Chairman and Director of Choral Activities for District Seven will lead musical direction. Susan Woodham, dance teacher at Pine Street School and Outreach Director for Ballet Spartanburg, and Caroline Pruitt, special education teacher at Chapman Elementary and dance teacher for Ballet Spartanburg, will serve as choreographers.
