Seniors Alex Andrews and Ryan Vance love life on the stage

"I wanted to go into something and I thought I'd try the band, but the only opening they had was for a tuba player," Alex said.

Before they discovered life in the spotlight, the teens played sports. Ryan was a varsity football player for the Bulldogs.

"But I gave it up for acting," he said.

On the stage

While Alex appeared in the 130-voice chorus winter and spring concerts, Ryan was on stage in the fall play and spring musicals.

Between performances, the students would compete in district and state choral or Thespian competitions.

"I think the coolest thing about the performing arts is it's so open to anybody," Ryan said. "It's not cliquish. It's a big melting pot."
