Tabor Academy will be hosting our Third Annual Polar Plungeon December 9th at 11:00 am at Silver Shell Beach.
The event is always a great way to chase away the winter blues with an exhilarating plunge into the clear icy waters of Sippican! Beyond being a great time, the Polar Plunge helps to raise money to support our friends at Special Olympics MA, an organization that is near and dear to our hearts. Each Sunday morning throughout the winter season, Tabor student volunteers enjoy working out with many local young athletes. Playing games and doing drills together is a great opportunity to have fun, make new friends, and for everyone involved to improve their skills and conditioning. It’s simply a really great time and our students love this activity.
To give back to this organization that has brought us so much joy, Tabor’s Special Olympics Club is plunging and invites everyone to join in the fun of the plunge along with other students and families in our regional community. Grab a friend and plunge, “pinky” plunge, spectate or donate! The important part is to participate and support the plungers! Click this link to learn more!
With their whooping success last year raising over $7,000, the student board of directors is going big and hopes to top $10,000 this year. Join in the challenge and take the plunge with Tabor on December 9 at 11:00 AM.
Tabor Academy invites the public to their performance of their winter musical, Heathers: The Musical (HSE) on February 14-16 at 7:30 PM.
Heathers: The Musical, a satire dealing with the challenges of teen life, became an Off-Broadway hit in 2014. Because the subject matter was so relevant to high schools, the creators of the show, Kevin Murphy and Laurence O’Keefe, worked closely with Pearce High School in Richardson, TX, from 2015 through 2016 to develop a “toned-down,” high school edition (HSE) of the show. Tabor’s director, Mark Howland said, “While Heathers: The Musical (HSE) delves into such hot-button topics as body shaming, sexual harassment, and suicide, it does so with humor and sensitivity. The creators have claimed in fact that they feel the show is about female empowerment. Rather than avoid these taboo topics, Heathers: The Musical (HSE) tackles them head on but through the lens of satire, showing us that high schoolers need to be kinder to each other, and adults who work with them need to be more clued in. Our goal is that the show be a catalyst for the school community to further awareness and empathy.”
The show runs February 14, 15, 16 at 7:30 PM in Tabor’s Fireman Center for the Performing Arts in Hoyt Hall at 245 Front Street, Marion. It is free and open to the public, no tickets or reservations required.
