JAMMING OUT - Thompson Falls Elemenatary students showed their best talents during the annual variety show last week. Above, Tilly Kreiner and Veronica Vega jam out on homemade guitars.

Young talent is far from lacking in Thompson Falls. Junior high and elementary students showcased their flair last week during the annual variety show held at the school gymnasium last week.

Music teacher Lisa Mickelson organizes the event every spring. Students must audition for a part in the show, as there is only so much time allowed. This year, Mickelson had more acts than ever, so she had to keep each performance to a minimum.

"There seemed to be as much or more talent showcased than ever," Mickelson shared. "There is some hidden, beautiful talent within this school, and I was thrilled to watch the students share it."

It was clear that the performing students spent hours rehearsing their talents. The show was aptly named "variety" show. Acts were staged from a kindergarten student who lip-synched "Batman," to a grunge-era Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic, of Nirvana, guitar smashing performance. Top that with a junior high choir "Something Rotten" musical can-can skit, and it is clear there was definite variety in 2019's variety show.

Talent was displayed by Faith Palmer, Rylee Hutchings, Shae Hutchings, Ava Grimm, Alyssa Geisbusch, AJ Sundstrom, Kayla Fausett, Trinity Riffle, JJ Fields, Tilly Kreiner, Veronica Vega, Gage Park, Cindy Querforth, Scarlett Bullard Stafford, Destiny Elder, Alex Barrera, the junior high choir featuring Connor McPherson and Declan Harris, Bethany Burk, Trinity Riffle, Landin Baird, Brylon VanElswyk, Jesse Buchanan, Noah Vold, Bella Buchanan, Alex Olesen, Addie Traver, Addy Deal, Teagan Dorscher, Liam Pallister, Solveig Nygaard and Aubrey Baxter.

By this time in the school year, summer vacation countdowns are alive and strong. Teachers and students alike enjoy a break in the classroom mundanity. Both agree that without fun activities such as the variety show, the final days of school can seem extensively long for antsy students, as well as their teachers.

"The variety show blew my mind," Mickelson said, "I was so proud!"
