Seniors preformed their Senior Skit at both lunches on Friday, March 23rd. The theme was "Senior Survivors" and their skit was based around it.
The skit started with what seems to be a car accident. The characters Brandon Deadwiler, Jyoti Swamy, and Justin McCarthy were the victims of the accident. An ambulance comes and checks on these kids and an intro starts, "What happens within the 12 seconds when your body dies, and when your brain dies."
The scene then starts with students running away from these creatures. Jyoti and Brandon were left wondering what has happened . After the first dance, Thriller, the main characters figure out that the creatures are zombies. Jyoti and Brandon are then united with Justin, Maureen Diamonte, and Sagar Sen. Slowly everyone dies off into zombies. The people who are left are Jyoti, Brandon, and Justin.
Justin starts to blame Jyoti and Brandon and the story of the car accident is explained. Justin was the only one severely hurt and he wanted Jyoti and Brandon dead for it. Justin supposedly created the zombie virus from "a dead cat during physio." Justin tried to inject Brandon with the virus but ends up stabbing himself and he ultimately turned into a zombie. The skit ends with all of them in the hospital. The zombie appocolypse really didn't happen, it just occurred within, "the 12 seconds when your body dies, and when your brain dies."
After the main storyline the Senior Class of 2012 show their dancing skills with a swing, lyrical and hip hop piece.
The senior skit was not what I expected it would be. In some ways it amazed me and in some ways it didn't. The skills and talents of the senior class were amazing, but I was weary of the clarity of the skit. Overall, I think that the Senior Class did pretty well and they snatched the number one spot in the skit competition.
