La Colina’s Outburst Takes Top 3 Awards at Musical Theater Competition

La Colina Junior High School’s Outburst musical theater group swept the stage last weekend at a Musical Theatre Competitions of America event in Anaheim.

Under the direction of Shannon Saleh, 28 Outburst performing students competed solos, duets and ensemble pieces as well as participating in Disneyland Resort workshops.

In addition to Saleh, the Outburst ensemble and individual students had the opportunity to perform for experienced adjudicators, and La Colina Junior High came home with the top three awards.

Their titles included first-place Ensemble Division, with their performance of “Westside Story,” first-place Musical Revue featuring songs composed by Alan Menken; and the overall Sweepstakes Award.

— Maja Greig is a parent for La Colina Junior High School.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
