Sophie: “First we picked our theme and our charity.”
Q: How did you guys choose the theme and the charity of this year’s event?
Hannah: “We wanted the theme to have a bunch of different people-something that would give a good dance so then the pop stars give the dance chairs a lot of opportunity for smaller music choices.”
Julia” “We could give suggestions but also they could pick someone specific if they wanted to.”
Q: Why did you choose this charity and why did you choose that theme?
Sophie: “The charity was definitely something close to home at east, a lot of people are affected by illnesses or even by injuries so, we felt like CHOP was a good way to encompass everyone.”
Q Can you explain more about the charity?
Olivia: “I think we are just donating to CHOP overall, so it could go to any department of theirs.”

Julia: “The opportunity to be involved in more school productions, it is very fun to be behind the scenes of something the whole school is a part of.”
Olivia: “It is a tradition, and a lot of schools don’t have something like this-male beauty pageants.”
Sophie: “It is also a fun way to get closer with people you don’t really know at the end of your senior year, there are so many people who applied to do it.”
Q: What are you most looking forward to?
Hannah: “Honestly just the show, I am excited to see it come to life.”
Q: What are some challenges that you have encountered planning for Mr. East?
