Students Act Out U.S. History On Stage Showtime • 5th graders from Peninsula Heritage School take the stage at the Norris Theatre for U.S. History lessons. The Heritage School’s students wowed the Norris Theatre audience last week, presenting the history of the American Revolution through song, dance and comedy. “I know each of these students,” says Head of School Patricia Cailler. “And to see them fill the roles of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Rachel Revere, and so many others with such professionalism is amazing. We keep reminding ourselves that they are fifth graders!” Alumni of Peninsula Heritage School were among the enthusiastic audience members, as each of these former students recalled the parts they played in this annual production. “I really liked how they mix the history with bits of today’s American culture, making it really funny,” said one alumna, citing adaptations of a Beatles tune as well as the classic “YMCA.” As the actors, still in costume, were rushed for autographs after the show, parents, grandparents, and family

friends beamed with pride at the children’s theatrical accomplishments. In addition to numerous musical solos, the students presented 17 production numbers with full choreography and vocals. Although this play is presented annually by the school’s fifth graders, the script, songs, and other details change each year, showcasing the talents of the individual students. Fifth grade teacher Kimarie Lynn produces and directs the show, script

adaptations are by language arts enrichment teacher Kat Banales, choreography arranged by dance and drama teacher Deb Wilcox, and musical production is produced by music teacher Charley Miller. Teacher support Terry

When Emotion Takes Over Body Functions

More Stories From An Old Young Sportswriter

Publisher’s Note (crazy talk)

• It was a long, long time ago. I had already covered a lot basketball during my brief history as a Daily Breeze sportswriter when prep sports editor Rob Fernas asked me to cover an important game at Torrance High School I don’t know why I was pegged to cover the big game, but at the time I had already seen a lot of prep hoops and interviewed a lot of coaches. I had seen some great games with terrific athletes at Morningside, Fairfax, Inglewood and Redondo Union high schools, and I had written game stories on the L.A. Clippers back when they played in the Sports Arena and were considered the worst basketball team in NBA history. The story was important because if Torrance won, they would secure third place in the league and qualify for the CIF playoffs - the first time in years for the Torrance program. I’m going to guess that Torrance was playing in either the Ocean League or the

Pioneer League, and the opponent that night might have been either Leuzinger or Beverly Hills. I really don’t remember. This was more than 30 years ago. Some things back then are rather shadowy, others crystal clear, never to be forgotten. Like most high school basketball games, the gym was loud and raucous with the Tarter fans excited about their team. I remember the game being close, with Torrance pulling ahead in the final period to get the win and earn a spot in the CIF playoffs. When I bring up these memories of my time at the Breeze, what strikes me the most is how young I was (early 20s) and how old the coaches were. In reality, the Torrance High basketball coach was only a few years older than I was, and it seemed he really took the emotion of the game hard. Basketball is not a game for the faint of heart. It’s a fast-paced game where the highs and lows of players and fans swing back and forth in the space of a few seconds. The gym was too loud to conduct a post-game interview, so I suggested we go outside for a few minutes to get his

comments on the big win. The contrast between the mayhem and excitement inside the gym and the quiet, cold night outside was striking. We stood alone near the entrance as I got my reporters’ notebook out to ask a few questions.

Like most basketball coaches, the Torrance coach was sharply dressed with a nice suit and silk tie. His young wife, or girlfriend, stood off to the side - visibly proud of her victorious man being interviewed by a real-

Too Much Emotion Inside And Out

Continued from Page 8 . . . sports reporter for the local newspaper. She was also dressed formally. They probably had dinner plans for that night to celebrate, to commiserate, after the game. I don’t remember if I had asked the first question or not, but the coach was in the process of saying something when suddenly his whole face turned red and his cheeks swelled up like a blow fish. He then proceeded to put his hands to his face - wearing a nice gold ring and bracelet - and tried to say “excuse me” while turning his head slightly away. But not far away enough. The coaches cheeks deflated, his face went from red to white, and thick yellow vomit began gushing from his fingers on to his nice pants and polished leather shoes. It wasn’t like a water balloon explosion or anything, just a trickle of the yellow mess oozing from his hand onto

the ground - splattering on my dirty sportswriter sneakers and blue jeans. (No dress codes for sportswriters!) He was extremely sorry for the incident. He regained control of his emotions and his body functions soon afterward, and I was able to get a few standard quotes about the game. It was a very emotional game, a big win for the young coach. I’m glad his players and the Torrance High student body missed the spectacle outside the gym. I think the team lost in the first round of the playoffs. OK, so that’s the “Barf Coach Story.” There’s no need for me to repeat it or ask me about it any longer. There is no moral to this story nor does it have any redeeming value. But it happened, so there you go. Next up for stories from an old, young sportswriter: the world of Team Tennis at the Fabulous Forum with the L.A. Strings.
