“Fallen Angels” Review
On January 29, the play “Fallen Angels” opened on stage. “Fallen Angels” is a comedy-romance about two British women, Jane and Julia (played by Elizabeth Bryant and Jolie Thompson) are each married, but both fall in love with the same French man, Maurice (Tyler Melson). In the beginning of the play, Julia was married to Fred (Parker Franck) and Jane was married to Willy (Andrew Donahue). But before they were married, both women had a previous relationship with Maurice.
The cast of the Fallen Angels did an amazing job playing their part and carrying out the story how it was meant to be. The actors were not only putting on their character’s personality, but they became their character. They kept the audience entertained and tuned in to the story line and plot at all times. This play was directed by Heather Patterson for her senior project; she did an amazing job blocking out the set and the scenes.

Tornado’s Got Talent - and Philanthropy
NMHS student Savannah Bible-May successfully raised over $1,440 for the Jackson County Foster Parent Association through her senior project, Tornado’s Got Talent.
TGT offered a unique opportunity to students from both North and South Medford High Schools: the chance to compete against one another in a talent show while also supporting local foster parents.
Nineteen students chose to use their talents for the greater good; performances ranged from musical performances to comedy pieces. North students Missy Durham, Garrett Bond, Zac Burnett, Michelle Zevelev, Alexander Gao, and alumni Landon Rawcliffe were awarded the first place title for their a cappella performance of Pentatonix’s mashup arrangement of “Hey Momma/Hit The Road Jack.”
“I love the arts,” said Bible-May. “I am a foster child, and doing this for the Foster Parent Association is very close to my heart.” The senior knew from the beginning that she wanted to use her project to simultaneously cultivate the arts and raise money for the local organization, and with the success of Tornado’s Got Talent, she did just that.
