BELMONT — The Belmont High School chapter of the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) is planning a number of events to celebrate the national observation of Future Business Leaders of America Week.
Belmont High School FBLA members are busy promoting the purpose and value of their organization to their peers
and administration at the high school, the School Board, and the local community.
Community service is a large part of the experience that FBLA offers, so members of the FBLA chapter at Belmont High School, along with members from around the state, decided to kick the week off Saturday night in Manchester at the Monarchs "Pink in the Rink" event supporting the fight against breast cancer.
On Thursday students plan to hold a social event, inviting friends who might be interested in learning more about their organization to join them for pizza. "Bringing a friend to our socials is a fun and creative way to get people to join FBLA and they don't just come for the pizza, they end up sticking around when they see what we do and how much fun we have. I attended last year, and that's what led me to become a member," stated Zoe Zeller. Students will also have the opportunity to hear from a special guest from the Tilton Rotary.
FBLA members have developed bulletin boards and displays around the school that promote FBLA and this year's national theme, Step Up to the Challenge, through pictures of different events showcasing what a year in FBLA looks like and some of the accomplishments of the BHS FBLA chapter. Students also created newsletters for both students and parents designed to increase awareness of the purpose of FBLA and all that the group at BHS does. Some of the accolades that the students are most proud of include their five consecutive Gold Seal awards, recognition as one of the top three most outstanding chapters in New Hampshire over those same five years, and awards for being the top fundraising chapter in NH FBLA for the last six years.

MEREDITH — On Saturday February 14th at 2 pm and Sunday February 15th at 6:30 pm the Winni Players will be holding auditions for the Maltby/Shire musical Baby, directed by Bryan Halperin with music direction by Judy Hayward and choreography by Jenna Rogato. Auditions will take place at The Winnipesaukee Playhouse at 50 Reservoir Road in Meredith.
Is there anything more exciting, frightening and utterly transformational than impending parenthood? Baby, the musical from acclaimed duo Richard Maltby, Jr. and David Shire examines how three couples on a university campus at different stages of life deal with the painful, rewarding and agonizingly funny consequences of the universal experience of pregnancy and upcoming parenthood.
Auditioners should prepare a musical theatre song of their choosing and bring sheet music to auditions. All readings will be from the script. Auditions are open to actors ages 18+. For the six leads, the Players are looking for dynamic performers equally comfortable with singing and dramatic acting as the believable relationships of the couples in their scenes are critical to the success of the production. The ensemble will consist of performers of all ages to play the various doctors, nurses, real estate agents, college professors, college students, etc that complete the cast of Baby. Actors of all levels of experience and ability are encouraged to attend.
No appointment is necessary but actors should arrive on time to fill out an audition and attend a short meeting about the auditions and the show before auditions begin. Callbacks, if needed, will be Tuesday February 17th at 6:30 pm.
Rehearsals will begin March 3rd and will generally be Saturdays from 1:30-5:30 pm, Sundays from 6:30-9 pm, and Tuesdays from 6:30-9 pm. As of April 21 rehearsal schedule will change to Sundays 1:30-5:30 pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30-9 pm. Performances will be May 7-10. Not all actors will be needed at all rehearsals.
