A Frightful Heritage Hills Tradition Continues in the Wicked Wild West

Monday Night was the opening for Heritage Hills’ 2019 Fright Nightshow, Wicked Wild West, produced by the Heritage Hills Choir Department. 

Brave souls will have two more chances to see this year’s show. Remaining performances will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 29, and Thursday, October 31. Doors open at 6 p.m. both nights. Student Tickets are $3 Adults are $5 and children 5 and under are free. Anyone who wears a Halloween costume will receive $1 off their ticket.

This year’s western-themed show is the ninth Fright Night show produced under choir director Laura Staffeld. Past themes include an abandoned school, the jungle, pirates, circus, to name a few. Students submit popular songs and change the lyrics to make them Halloween themed. This year’s show includes singing, dancing, bar fights, saloon girls doing the cancan, and is overall just a frightening good time for all ages.

Students begin working on the show as soon as school starts back in session and put in a lot of hard work alongside parents, past students, faculty, and community members who have all come together to to continue this Halloween tradition. 

Hannah Marchand, Shelby Miller, Nadia Rodriguez, and Maricruz Prado perform as part of the choir during Monday’s performance.
