Coppell High School Varsity Marching Band Wins Again!
Published: Mon, Oct 23, 2017, 07:56PM CDT

After a beautiful performance on the evening of Tuesday the 17th of October, the 2017 Coppell High School Varsity Marching Band earned their 26th Consecutive UIL Marching Sweepstakes Award. A Marching Sweepstakes is the highest award that is given in this UIL competition and indicates that each of the three judges gave their performance the top score.

“UIL Marching is a standard across the state and while used solely for ratings and not rankings, the regional contests show accountability from programs across a period of time. We are fortunate in Coppell to have a program that continues to receive Superior ratings from all judges and has done so for 26 consecutive years.” explains Brandon Slovak, assistant director of the Coppell High School Marching Band.

With marching season in full swing, the Coppell Marching Band has been competing in back to back contests and gaining trophies and awards along the way. The band also recently marched in the Coppell homecoming parade and performed their show for alumni and the general public after the Homecoming football game.

The UIL event also marked the first time the Coppell Band marched in competition with their new uniforms. “These beautiful new uniforms are a wonderful addition to the image of the Coppell Band. It’s fantastic that we have a great look that matches our great sound” says 11th grade drum major Mallika Chadaga.

The band will next be performing in competition at the Bands of America San Antonio Contest at the Alamodome.on November 4nd.

They’re creepy and they’re spooky and all together ooky!!!!

Addams Family the Musical
opens at Coppell High School Theatre

That lovable family of creepy kooks is alive and well and living in their super-spooky mansion in Central Park. The Addams family, led by the elegantly gaunt and seemingly undead Morticia (played by senior, Macy Johnson) and her ever-devoted husband Gomez (senior Mark Beshai), is in turmoil. Their daughter Wednesday (senior Macy McCready), now 18, finds herself falling in love—a sensation that is unsettling for both her and her family of endearing misfits. When the teen invites her new boyfriend, Lucas Beineke (junior Barrett Engler), over with his “normal” family to get better acquainted with the Addams household, comic chaos ensues.

Under the direction of Lisa Tabor, choreography by Whitney Bollinger and musical direction of Adam Wright and Isaac Leaverton, Coppell High School promises to keep you laughing and dancing in your seat.

Don’t miss your opportunity to see Addams Family the Musical. Performance dates are Saturday, October 21st, Sunday, October 22nd and Friday, October 27th through Sunday, October 29th in the CHS Auditorium. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 pm.
