<![CDATA["Thoroughly Modern Millie" is a Thoroughly Good Show]]>Fri, 02 Dec 2011 08:00:00 GMThttp://mhsheadlight.weebly.com/1/post/2011/12/thoroughly-modern-millie-is-a-thoroughly-good-show.htmlUPDATED Sunday December 11:
I can now say from personal experience that "Throughly Modern Millie" is an amazing show.  Having seen it last night at the Performing Arts Center, I was amazed by the talented cast who managed to add humor to an already stellar show.  The singing was superb and the band (led by Ms. Amanda Roeder) was fabulous.  Directed by Mr. Steve Black with stage crew led Mr. Greg Dana and choreography by Lara Finn the show is a delight.
Telling the story of a modern girl named Millie (Elizabeth Jancsy) who travels to New York to peruse her dreams of marrying a wealthy businessman only to meet Jimmy Smith (Jacob Sundlie) who falls in love with her.  Also present is the famed singer Muzzy Van Hossmere (Jen Taranto) and the devious hotel manager Mrs. Meers (James Zissulis).  The cast does a wonderful job making their characters funny and entertaining while the crew (led by Production Stage Manager Max Levine) does a perfect job with lighting (Mary Kauffman) and staging.
If only it were playing for another week... ]]>
<![CDATA[Magicians beat Big Blue 21-7]]>Fri, 25 Nov 2011 08:00:00 GMThttp://mhsheadlight.weebly.com/1/post/2011/11/magicians-beat-big-blue-21-7.htmlYesterday as Turkey Day began, another tradition was upheld: for over 100 years the Marblehead Magicians have played Swampscott's Big Blue on Thanksgiving to a massive crowd; but this year it was different.  This year they were playing for a spot in the playoffs and the title of NEC Champions.  Led by Captains Will Quigley, Oliver Gregory, Honorary Captain Chris Piper and Headlight's Own Sports Editor Joel Katz the Magicians won the game 21-7.  The crowd was energized throughout with Quigley's two touchdown runs and quarterback Ian Maag's other touchdown.  The marching band played the Star Spangled Banner for the opening with Swampscott's marching band (Marblehead was led by Band Teacher Ken Warren) and were then led by Headlight's own Danny Plunkett for halftime.
Congratulations to the Magicians, NEC Champions! ]]>

<![CDATA[The Movies to Come]]>Tue, 01 Nov 2011 07:00:00 GMThttp://mhsheadlight.weebly.com/1/post/2011/11/the-movies-to-come.htmlIt appears that the movie season is upon us.  It is that special time of year where the Holidays come to theaters.  It is the most wonderful time of the year.  Since the summer was a dud with special effects that attempted to rewrite story lines, this winter is shaping up to be a lot better.  
First off, we have J. Edgar a movie directed by famed director Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby and Gran Torino) with actor Leonardo DiCaprio (Inception and Titanic).  It tells the story of the first director of the FBI, J. Edgar Hoover.  It will definitely be one to watch.
Then there's Breaking Dawn, the first installment in a long awaited conclusion to Stephanie Meyers epic series Twilight.  It is one that fans have been awaiting for years!
There's also Steven Speilberg's two movies: War Horse and The Adventures of Tintin.  The first is a story of World War II and a boy's horse (adapted from the Tony award winning play which was adapted from the novel) and then the other is based on the famous graphic novels by Georges Remi and it uses motion captures.  Both arrive on Christmas.
Finally, there are some lesser known movies like Illumination's adaption of Dr. Suess's The Lorax and Glenn Close's Albert Nobbs, Michele Williams's My Week with Marylin, Meryl Streep's The Iron Lady, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol starring Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner, and finally Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy starring Gary Oldman and Colin Firth.
It's a season to be jolly, and one that fill my spare time with movies.

<![CDATA[The Snow to Begin It All]]>Mon, 31 Oct 2011 07:00:00 GMThttp://mhsheadlight.weebly.com/1/post/2011/10/the-snow-to-begin-it-all.htmlThis weekend was a whirlwind.  First off, it was cold.  Very very cold.  Then came the rain.  Lots and lots of rain.  Then no power and heavy wind.  The wind blew down power lines and left many in the dark (mainly in Connecticut).  But here, well we got some snow.  It wasn't much but it was enough to spark discussion of how it could be snowing in October.  Really, how is that possible?  It doesn't make sense.
So first came the rain, the sheets of it that came down and pummeled Marblehead.  Then the snow came with a dusting and a warning: More will be coming.  I will be waiting... ]]>
<![CDATA[Welcome to MHS!]]>Thu, 27 Oct 2011 07:00:00 GMThttp://mhsheadlight.weebly.com/1/post/2011/10/welcome-to-mhs.htmlThis piece was quoted from the Marblehead High School website.  Kudos to them:
"We are a supportive, high achieving community of learners with a challenging academic program that creates opportunities for success for a wide variety of students. Our teachers employ a range of strategies in the classroom that challenge students to demonstrate what they have learned through diverse evaluative techniques. Our students are inquisitive, truth-seeking and creative in their approaches to solving the problems of today's world. 
"We offer many extra-curricular opportunities through clubs and other organizations, involving 75% of our students. Our arts programs are award-winning and include vocal and instrumental music, studio art and theater. Our athletic program is successful in both the Northeast Conference and at the state level winning state titles last year in girls' skiing, swimming, boys' ice hockey and co-ed sailing. Students and advisors together plan social and club events, conduct service projects and compete in academic competitions such as mock trial, science league and math league."

<![CDATA[TV]]>Wed, 12 Oct 2011 07:00:00 GMThttp://mhsheadlight.weebly.com/1/post/2011/10/tv.htmlAs Alex Stein illustrated in his article about the time warp of television, TV starts again.  Be it the new freshman comedies (New Girl) or the dramas (Persons of Interest), the sophomore and junior ones (for Drama: Hawaii Five-0 and Comedy: Modern Family) or the ones that are still going strong (NCISThe Simpsons), TV demonstrates what people want to see and what they don't.  To see that so many comedies are topping the Neilson ratings each week demonstrates that we (as America) want to laugh and have fun, we don't want to sit around and watch serial killers like in Criminal Minds.  But then the one show that is consistent for comedy (Two and a Half Men) has been, rather, a disappointment with the new casting (but that isn't for me to tell).  Still, drama like NCIS still has the top ratings.
I guess all that I am saying is, we TV watchers like consistency and the same thing.  Try to throw a curveball at us, and we won't watch.  It's how we live: we like what we like, and vice versa.
So, enjoy your TV shows and see if they make the cut for next season.
