LAHS seniors get the chance of a lifetime

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Some people dream about it in elementary. Others wait years for the chance, looking forward to high school and senior year because that’s when they’ll get a shot. The list is elite and only six will be chosen.
This year,  LAHS seniors Mireya Bouquin, Amethyst Collins, Bob Collum, Molly Finn, Kevin Smale and Kayla Suazo are the group chosen to emcee “Breaking the Bank,” the Olions’ annual ’Topper Revue.
While being an emcee might sound simple enough, the group has more responsibility than one might imagine. They are in charge of choosing the acts for ’Topper Revue. In fact, from a group of 30, they were responsible for choosing 15-20 that would be in the show. They ended up with 18 acts. In addition, they are also responsible for writing the script for — and hosting — the show.
“We’re like the glue,” Suazo said. “We did the posters and the videos and we chose the acts.”
Tryouts can be nerve-wracking as each candidate is expected to come up with a monologue, write it and perform it. During try-outs they also play improv games that will test their ability to adapt and overcome when faced with unexpected occurrences.
