News for Marion High School
A family faces tough decisions in the MHS Black History Club's play, Livin' Fat. We invite YOU to come and watch the story unfold!
The play is set for 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25, at the Walton Center at Marion High School.
Livin' Fat launched the career of Judi Ann Mason, one of first female African-American television sitcom writers. She wrote it at the age of 19, and with it earned a comedy award sponsored by the Kennedy Center. Her work caught the eye of TV producer Norman Lear, who hired her as a writer for the classic series Good Times. She went on to write for several other series, including A Different World and Beverly Hills 90210, and was also one of the writers of the movie Sister Act 2 starring Whoopie Goldberg. She continued writing plays as well, and earned the Kennedy Center's Lorraine Hansberry Award for her play A Star Ain't Nothin' But a Hole in Heaven.
Through Mason's lense, big ideas become personal choices with far-reaching consequences. Livin' Fat, set in the 1970s, tells the story of the Cooper family. While working as a bank janitor, David Lee, finds a packet of cash dropped by fleeing robbers, takes it home and begins buying his financially strapped family the things they've long wanted but couldn't afford. But the unexplained gifts worry righteous mother Biddie and father Calvin, who becomes convinced David Lee robbed the bank and wants him to return money — even if it means going to jail.
The cast members are:
- Stacia Tyson, an MHS senior, playing Mary Lee Cooper (Big Mama)
- Tae'lor Tyner, an MHS senior, playing Biddie Steen Carter (Mama)
- Manual Davis, an MHS junior, playing Calvin Ray Carter (Daddy)
- Leilanu Jackson, an MHS sophomore, playing Candy Carter
- Amonte King, an MHS junior, playing Eberneezer Goodson (Boo)
And make sure to get here early to enjoy the '70s fashion show featuring students and community members, before the play gets started!
Some members of the MHS Academic Giants accept a donation from Via Credit Union President/CEO, David Abernathy.
During the last quarter of 2016, ViaCU’s branches competed against each other to benefit area schools. Employees tracked their workout minutes, and each branch represented a local high school. The branch with the most workout minutes at the end of the wellness initiative received the opportunity to present a check for $100 to the winning school. The group that won the competition was the Marion Giants Team! Therefore, ViaCU presented money to the academic teams at Marion High School.
Thank you to ViaCU!
