Senator Square: Carson High students get ready from prom

Carson High School will be hosting the 2014 Prom at the Carson Nugget on Saturday. This year’s theme is the Great Gatsby. Prom royalty was announced this week. Congratulations to seniors Nicholas Lani, Porfirio Jauregui, Andy Cooper, Adam Peterson, Dustin Dutcher, Tony Xia, Elizabeth Everest, Alexandra Drozdoff, Callen Aten, Rebecca Brady, Andrea Senda and Faithann Hodorowicz.

A prom assembly for all CHS students will be held on Tuesday at CHS.


What is “Urinetown”? Come and see the show to find out! A musical comedy that manages to subsequently be dark and profound, “Urinetown” is an earnest tale of love, greed and revolution. The show is set in a town plagued by a 20-year drought, where water has become so scarce that private toilets have become unthinkable.

At the mercy of a single dominating corporation who maintains a monopoly on the town’s public amenities, the destitute citizens must pay towering taxes and fines to carry out their most private and basic of needs. Out of the mass of the pitiable, a hero rises to lead his fellow citizens against the tyrannical regime.

Starring Courtney Baxter, Kaeli Biggin, Ivan Gates, Brent Lauderaugh, Amanda Ramsey, Henry Wilson, and an incredible supporting cast, chorus, pit orchestra and crew, this is one you won’t want to miss.

Tickets are available at the door of the Bob Boldrick Theatre at the Carson City Community Center and are $5 high school students and children; $10 for general admission.

Show dates are 7 p.m. April 4, 10, 11 and 12; 2 p.m. April 6 and 12.


Carson High School will be hosting an information night for incoming freshmen and their parents on Tuesday for Eagle Valley Middle School, Bethlehem Lutheran School, and St. Teresa. Carson Middle School will be hosted Wednesday. Both evenings will begin at 6 p.m. in the Carson High School library.

Please plan to join the Carson High School counselors to learn more about the high school and have any questions answered.
