Carlsbad High Students Produce Play

by The Editors on November 6, 2018

Love Is Blind, a play directed by Carlsbad High School sophomore Aiko Lozar is set to run December 6-8, 2018 at Carlsbad High School. The play, which is reportedly the first in Carlsbad history to be completely written, directed, and produced by students, combines the talents of 17 Carlsbad High School students from three different grade levels.

A hard-hitting piece about a dystopian society in which love has been eradicated for the sake of peace, the characters question the importance of controversy, love, and freedom of speech. The play follows the fictional life of Amber, a high school student who agrees that love should be synonymous to treason – until Amber falls in love with her best friend, Blake Colby. Written entirely in rhyme & prose, and blocked with interpretive choreography, the play depicts the ethical struggles behind a technologically advanced society as well as the undiscovered waters of falling in love as a teenager. The unique setting of the theater room allows for interaction between the audience and the cast in a theater-in-the-round style to yield a more intimate and meaningful connection between the modern world and the characters in the play.

Tickets for the performances are $5 and can be purchased in advance at https://loveisblindtickets.brownpapertickets.com/. For the official word on the play and those responsible for its production, please follow the jump.

Carlsbad Varsity Dancers Win Nationals

by The Editors on February 13, 2017

Carlsbad High School’s varsity dance team, the Lancer Dancers, took home a first place title at this year’s Universal Dance Association (UDA) National Dance Team Competition in the hip hop category. The event took place at Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida, Feb. 3-5, with several hundred of the nation’s top high school dance teams participating in the largest and most prestigious dance competition in the country.

“This was a huge win for us,” said Coach and former alum Laura Nares. “To win a title this year required a lot of extra effort and discipline having lost eight amazing seniors from last year’s squad. Over half of our team is new, which is a testament to how well the captains rose to the challenge of building a cohesive, unified team. We also had an injury sideline our only senior so we had to make some late adjustments to choreography and have an alternate step in and learn both routines.”

Carlsbad High School’s varsity Lancer Dancers just took second place at the 2015 United Spirit Association’s (USA) national dance competition in the jazz category.

“To make another run at a National Title required some extra effort this year,” said Carlsbad Dance Boosters president, Michelle Ginn. “A back-injury sidelined one of our dancers just days before the competition, and the coach and girls had to make some late adjustments to the routine’s intricate choreography. So we’re extremely proud of the team for their well earned runner-up finish,” Ginn added.
