 Friday Focus:  

Variety Show and Faculty Follies Premier

The pandemic won’t stop Buffalo Grove High School’s creative talent from being showcased! This year, the school’s annual Variety Show and Faculty Follies have joined together to provide one incredible virtual experience.  The event will feature students and staff from all walks of Buffalo Grove High School Life. The theme of this year's show is Once in a Lifetime, utilizing the classic Talking Heads song to capture the essence of this unique and unprecedented year. Student acts range from piano soloists, metal guitar bands, pop-rock ensembles, spoken word poetry, and more. The faculty and staff get involved and add their own special blend of parody, comedy, and talent to the show. The show will premiere on YouTube and Vimeo on Friday, April 9th at 7pm and will be available for your viewing pleasure for several weeks.  All are welcomed and encouraged to experience the creative endeavors of these students and staff, and all will find enjoyment and delight in the variety that is offered.  Here's the link:
