Preview for Sweeney Todd

By: Isabella Jenkins

Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, is the new spring musical coming to Glen Allen High school. The actors have been practicing really hard, and very often, to make this one of the best musicals yet and like every other Glen Allen musical, it’s going to be great. The musical will be presented April 25th-27th from 7:30 p.m. and typically lasts about 2 ½ hours. The tickets are $8 at all lunches and $10 at the door.

The musical is about a man named Sweeney Todd, played by Owen Rice, who is looking for revenge after his wife is thought to have an affair with a local judge. Sweeney Todd leaves his home and visits a meat pie shop on Fleet Street. The owner, Mrs. Lovett, played by Tori Eriavez, is having troub…

Meet FeedMore's CEO Doug Pick

By: Momina Raja

If you want to help out in your Richmond Community, FeedMore is the place to do just that. FeedMore, also known as the Central Virginia Food Bank, is a wonderful organization that prepares, collects, and distributes food to the those in need. It’s a place where my family and I volunteer through programs such as food sorting and Meals on Wheels.

Last month I had the chance to interview FeedMore’s CEO, Doug Pick. Mr. Pick, who has been in this position for seven years now, had plenty of good things to say. From cleaning boats and being a mentor, to working at Capital One and Feedmore, he even gives us insight on what donation items they need most and a typical day at work.

What made you want to become CEO of FeedMore?…

Captain Marvel Movie Review

By: Abby Perkins

Growing up watching Marvel movies, I always was so drawn into the action and drama of the heroes. There was Captain America, the immensely buff, handsome, and persevering superhuman who was given a serum back in the 1940s to turn him into a ‘Super-Soldier’ (he was then frozen in ice for 70 years, ended up fighting with the Avengers, etc., etc.). There was Iron Man, the genius billionaire with hundred of specialized suits that enable him to blast energy from his palms, fly, shoot missiles, track criminals, and more. These two men are the popular front-runners of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, acting in unison with the not-so-occasional opposition with one another to lead the pop culture icons, the Avengers.

Over the p…

Red Cross Club is Now at Glen Allen High

Red Cross Club, a new club at Glen Allen High School, focuses on giving blood, helping victims of disasters, and educating people about emergency preparedness and fire prevention. The current officers for the 2018-2019 school year are: Mia Varghese, Nancy Hoang, Anna Liu, and Momina Raja.

National Novel Writing Month Competition Draws To A Close

Stephen King has stated that a first draft of one of his novels takes about three months to write. George R. R. Martin, however, spent six years drafting the most recent volume of his series A Song of Ice and Fire. And J.D. Salinger spent an entire decade writing The Catcher in the Rye, allegedly averaging just twenty words per day.  But since 1999, hundreds of thousands of people across the world have put their skills to the test to pump out 50,000 words in just a month, in a competition called the National Novel Writing Month.

The National Novel Writing Month, colloquially referred to as NaNoWriMo, takes place annually during the month of November. In the first year, it consisted of just twenty-one aspiring writers near the San Francis…
