San Marino, California (PRWEB) February 28, 2014
Irina Netchaev, founding real estate broker and author of 365 Things To Do In Pasadena(R) part of Pasadena Views Real Estate Team Inc is proud to help San Marino High School promote SPAMALOT!
Broadway comes to San Marino! Direct from the 2005 Tony awards, Monty Python’s Spamalot is a an up beat, high energy, hilarious musical that is sure to be another huge success for San Marino High School.
As a leading public school district in California, San Marino High School has a reputation for innovating and raising standards, and their performing arts department is no exception. San Marino High School’s students are committed to excellence, investing hundreds of hours into rehearsals. Whether they are creating harmonies, building the sets, painting props, or tap dancing, the students work for over three months while still juggling their academic and extra curricular activities.
Following the legendary King Arthur as he quests to bring together the best and brightest in the land to sit at the round table, San Marino High School’s musical draws students from the entire campus. An all-school musical allows students who normally don’t get a chance to participate, to be on stage. Always packing about 60 students on stage, the actual number of student involvement is closer to 10% of the school’s population, when you count the stage crew, the student orchestra members, the art students and all the volunteers who help pull it all together. San Marino High School believes in allowing its students to drive the production and the students are most definitely the ones running the show.
The musical is based on the original 1975 movie, Monty Python’s Quest for the Holy Grail, which came out the same year director Blake Williams was born. She literally grew up watching Python with her dad, and she hopes that the silly lyrics, the fun characters, combined with her interpretation will truly impress local audiences. “It still has the traditional favorites that everyone has come to know and love, like the SPAM Song, the Black Knight, a killer rabbit, and the coconuts. But I have added a few things like tap dancing trees, new knights, and some comedic moments for today’s high school audience. Any time you expand a show from a cast of 20 to 60 some changes have to be made. Hopefully I have been able to blend the best of Broadway into our community production“ Blake explains.
Having such a leading school in the area is one of San Marino’s key attractions, as leading real estate firm, Pasadena Views Real Estate Team is well aware of. Founder Irina Netchaev explains:
“When families look at moving to an area, they take multiple factors into account. The availability of good public schools is one of the most frequent questions that I am asked by those considering San Marino for their next home purchase and it is fantastic to be able to tell them about San Marino High School’s all-round approach to education.”
Of course, home buyers are also looking to ensure that the area in which they choose to live is known for maintaining and growing its housing value – and San Marino certainly checks that box. According to the latest market insight from Pasadena Views Real Estate Team, San Marino has seen a 19.7% increase in average sale price over the past 12 months, with prices tipped to rise further during the course of 2014. With such high quality school district in the area, it’s no wonder that San Marino remains such a popular choice with homebuyers looking for the perfect neighborhood to settle down.
Don’t miss this year’s musical. Appropriate for audiences of all ages, the San Marino High School production of Spamalot will run on March 14, 15, 20, 21 and 22 at 7:30pm and on March 16th at 2pm.
