This FRIDAY, MAY 19th at 7:00pm, the New Riegel Drama Department Presents: BAD AUDITIONS BY BAD ACTORS in the High School Auditeria. Dessert and Coffee will be available for purchase and admission is by donation.
A casting director has one day to find the leads for a community theater production of Romeo and Juliet. But what seems like a simple task proves impossible when the pool of actors includes extreme method actors, performers who just don’t know what to do with their hands, and one particular man who may or may not think he’s a cat. This hilarious comedy will bring you to the last place you’d ever want to be…behind the doors of a casting session.
Congratulations to our Junior High students, Tyler B, Lincoln C, Bria D, Genna E, Nicole E & Will H for their participation in the 2017 OMEA D2 JH Solo & Ensemble today! So much hard work goes into preparing for an event like this, and we are very proud of what you have accomplished today! Great work!

Below is our 2017 Spring Digital Concert. Instead of an assembly style In School Concert held in the gym, we decided to start a series of Digital Concerts where we record each group and post their repertoire on YouTube. The video below is a playlist of the Bands (multiple videos) and the Choirs (one video).
Blake Depinet will be marching in the Rose Parade on January 2nd as a member of the Bands of America Honor Band. We are so excited that he was accepted to participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity!
The Bands of America Honor Band is sponsored by Music For All, and they will be posting LIVE from the event through social media, and you can follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and on SnapChat @officialmfa. To find out when you can catch Blake, follow the official Rose Parade Schedule.
We are excited to watch you march, Blake! We know you will represent New Riegel well!
The 5-12 Winter Band and Choir Concert for this evening has been cancelled, due to the weather and threat of more snow rolling in during the scheduled concert time. Stay safe this evening, and Happy Holidays!
