Staff at South Hagerstown High School taught a cumulative lesson in laughter Thursday night in a humorous stage show dubbed "Puttin' on the Skitz."
The faculty talent show in the school auditorium was the first in 21 years, held to benefit a new school scholarship fund. The public was invited, but the crowd of about 300 was mostly students.
The show will go on again tonight, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
"Awesome" was the way student Bonnie Melvin, 17, described the first half of the show during intermission.
Staff members sang, played trumpets and did stand-up comedy and the Electric Slide. Guidance counselor Mary Ann Foltz did a piece from "Gypsy," followed by social studies teacher Mike Priest's serious rendition of "Amazing Grace." He accompanied himself on the dulcimer.
