Second UPDATE: SRO will take place Saturday at 7:00 PM in the performing arts center at GHS. 

All Friday night ticket holders will have their tickets honored for the Saturday show.  

UPDATE: Because Friday wound up being a snow day and school was canceled,there will be no Friday performance of SRO. Watch this space for information on whether the canceled show will be made up.

Original story: The Greenwich High School Class of 2017 is performing SRO in the performing arts center through Saturday, March 11. Performances start at 7:00pm.

The show, a long-running tradition at the high school features songs,skits and dances. There are photo slide shows and videos from student government leaders and the Cardinal News crew.

Highlights include a senior dress up day skit featuring seniors in clown costumes. The only problem was that clown costumes were banned in October by the superintendent after “crazy clown” threats went viral across the country.

Another great skit has Michael Busani reminding reluctant senior boys that they have to take their shirts off, as per tradition.

Ricky Columbo and Jack Ullrich share their senior wellness project involving the health benefits of eating breakfast, and the roving Cardinal News crew shake up their feature interviews with a bit of role reversal among talking heads.
