Formal night radiates Hollywood glamour

The star steps out of the limo and glides down the red carpet; all eyes are on her. The sparkle of her gown is complemented by her date’s sharp tuxedo, and together they enter the theater filled with people anticipating the premiere of their new movie.

The annual campus formal, Night of the Stars [NOTS], attempts to capture this Hollywood atmosphere as students gather to showcase their big screen talents at the Copper River Country Club on Feb. 12 beginning at 5 P.M. for formal photos.

Each original class writes, stages, films, edits and produces a movie entirely on their own efforts. Teamwork is essential as classes struggle to complete the film that will be shown on a big screen to their peers during the formal night.

“It was fun making our movie last year,” Carina Moran, ’05, said. “I have made so many great memories during the filming for Night of the Stars. It’s a great feeling when you get to sit down and watch the completed movie because you know how much work has gone into making it.”

The night offers more than movie screenings. The evening is augmented by a formal dinner where students get to trade their jeans and sweatshirts for a strappy dress or tuxedo.

In the past Night of the Stars has been held at Tower Theater and Ground Zero, but this year the student leadership class has decided to hold the event at the Copper River Country Club.

“I had a lot of fun at Tower Theatre two years ago; it was cool to go downtown and hang out with my friends in a vintage theater,” Nick Carrera, ’05, said. “The atmosphere was perfect for the event, but I am sure that that Copper River will be great as well.”

While most formals consist of only a dance, NOTS uniquely sets itself apart, turning the typical winter formal into a night of a catered dinner, formal photographs, movies and old Hollywood glamour.

“It’s fun to get dressed up and see everyone’s original movie ideas,” Moran said. “It can be so hard with everyone’s schedule to come together and set filming dates to get the movie done, but in the end it’s great to see that so many people made time to get involved.”

As the night draws to an end, a special awards ceremony begins. Awards are presented to classes who achieve the highest quality in categories ranging from best soundtrack to dance scene.

This year Night of The Stars will be held on Feb. 12 with dinner being served at 6:30 P.M. and the four movies are scheduled to begin at 7:45 P.m. Tickets for the event will be sold during lunch beginning next week on Jan. 18 through Feb. 5.

For more information about Night of the Stars, talk to a student leadership member or call the high school office at 559-299-1695, ext. 5.

    Quite the contrary!

    I am aware of the game and encourage the kids to have fun while at the game. We’re there to support the teams, but we’re also there to have fun and bond as a group! This is a group of people who enjoy being around one another!
