Applause, laughter and cheer concluded another year of talent at the 2015 ’Topper Revue.
This year’s emcees Ben Richelt, Charles Hermann, Leyla Ackhadov and Mateo Cardiel did the show justice by spinning a humorous tale about student anxiety over the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT).
During the show, these four students prepare to take the SAT but are interrupted when somebody’s timer goes off in the middle of the test. As a result, their scores are cancelled. Reichelt, a teen with a hidden and most definitely dark past, Hermann, a computer genius and tech geek, Akhadov, a critical and intimidating young woman, and Cardiel, a boy mistaken for a dog, work together to obtain their cancelled scores.
Meanwhile, students perform a flurry of impressive and entertaining acts, perhaps one of the best repertoires Los Alamos High School has seen in years, providing a diverse show experience for audience members.
In just four acts, the audience experiences a wide variety of dance. “Psychedelics” by Helen Lu, Alice Shao, Anne Scripsick, Sopahn Kellogg, Marybeth Farish, Brad Morely, Rachel Wallstrom and Andrei Popa-Simil, gives viewers a taste of the break dance style while the LAHS color guard shows off its talent by choreographing moves to the song “Funhouse” by Pink.
