Open Mic Performances

Open Mic this Friday was lovely! Lunch time sold out: we even had to turn folks away. Of course since it was lunch, students snacked on their favorites:

The lunchtime audience was respectful and appreciative of the performances. Excellent Viking etiquette!

While not a completely sold-out show after school, the audience showed their approval of all the performers with tons of applause. Again, excellent Viking audience etiquette.

Here are some pix from our after-school show:

So we need some snappy captions for these photos! Select any numbered photo and provide a suitable caption for it. Be sure to indicate which photo you are referring to [Lunch#3 for example] and your idea for a snappy but school-appropriate caption. The lunch time photos at the top do not count…
