Exeter-Milligan Elementary students entertained their family and friends on Tuesday evening Dec. 9 with singing and musical performances.
This year’s program was entitled “Holiday Magic” and featured  the fifth and sixth graders as the cast.
The evening began with the TYKE preschool presenting their rendition of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” and “A Star For My Little Tree.”
The first musical performance of the evening was the sixth grade band performing “Hark, The Herald Angles Sing.”  They were then joined by the fifth grade band and together performed “Christmas Cheer” before the fifth grade band performed “Jingle, Jolly Christmas.”
The third and fourth graders performed “Rahther Jolly Olde St. Nicholas” on their recorders.
The Kindergarten, first and second grade class sang five numbers including “I’m a Little Snowflake,” “Must Be Santa,” “Polar Puppy,” “Christ is Coming,” and “Feliz Navidad.”
After the younger classes performed, the third through sixth graders opened the curtain to the musical “Holiday Magic.”  Clint Oldehoeft was Billy (who was Santa in the school play the students were supposed to be rehearsing), Jaiden Papik filled the role of Beverly and Georgia Meyer was Milly, both members of the play that was missing the director.  Daisy Kanode was “Hillary,” the bossy class member who claimed to be running the rehearsal instead of the teacher who was mumbling on the couch in the teacher’s lounge.
Once the bossy Hillary took over the elves in the play rebelled burning their scripts (off stage).  The angels (Rebecca Krupicka and Kiah Songster)chased the elves while the wisemen (Katelyn Babula, Briana Capek, and Cameran Jansky) performed the “Ballad of the Wisemen.”
The reindeer rebelled in the thick of things with Rudolph (Blake Meyer) leading the way.  Comet (Casey Jindra), Donner (Sean Gibson) and Prancer (Cammie Harrison) all followed along with the Reindeer Band boycotting the practice as well.
After every group rebelled Hillary finally realized the magic of Christmas was in giving and restored the good feelings among the cast members.  The full cast ended the evening singing “Christmas Magic” together.
