About Practice What You Teach Benefit Concert
Practice What You Teach started three years ago when Logan High School teachers John McClain, Gretchen Weber, and Shelly Riggs decided to create an event where indeed they would "practice what they teach." As performing artists, they thought it important that their students see them doing those things that they taught in the choir and theatre classrooms each day. Thus was born Practice What You Teach, A Benefit Concert.
Each year, McClain, Weber, and Riggs look for an organization or individual to benefit with the event. The first year, the Crawford family was the beneficiary, after LHS alumnus Carrie Gallagan Crawford lost her battle with cancer. Funds raised went to the Crawford children's college fund. The second year, another LHS staff member battled cancer as well, and funds raised went to Shawn Brenick to help defray costs of his treatment. Last year's concert dedicated the proceeds to the Crew Nutter Scholarship Fund.
This year, as we pass the one-year mark in this pandemic, we find many of our families struggling with the effects of this virus. We dedicate this concert to the Class of 2021. Funds raised will go to help our seniors navigate the end-of-year costs associated with graduation and other events.
Online donations are being accepted through this website, and will also be accepted at the door in the form of cash or card as well. All donations will go to the Class of 2021.
Practice What You Teach will be held in the LHS Theatre. Mask and social distance protocols are in effect for Logan High School, in compliance with the governor's and school district's orders.
Logan High School Theatre and Choir
LHS Theatre and Choir are equal opportunity organizations at Logan High School. Located in the foothills of Appalachia in Hocking County, Ohio, LHS Theatre and Choir strive to provide opportunities to students of all backgrounds and talents, as well as providing families and the community with quality theatre and music.
The LHS Theatre program, lead by Shelly Riggs and Karen Bergreen, consists of at least two full length productions per year - the fall play and the spring musical, which is produced in conjunction with the LHS Choir Department. In addition, two nights of one acts are offered each year - in December and May - showcasing the talents of Acting I and Acting II students. A student written Christmas play, Shakespeare in the Courtyard, drama camp, flying workshops, and a winter show are some of the other opportunities for theatre available at LHS.
LHS Theatre has consistently performed well at the state level, having been invited to the State Thespian Conference with every screened production submitted. Full length credits to the state conference include Godspell, Pirate Girl (an original LHS production written by theatre instructor Shelly Riggs), and The Three Musketeers. Students regularly compete in individual events at the state level, and participate in the All-Ohio show.
The LHS Choirs, lead by John McClain and Gretchen Weber, presents 3-4 full concerts per year, including a major Winter Festival Concert and a major work. Acclaimed as "the most spirited choir in America," the LHS Choirs take pride in providing our community with meaningful and uplifting performances surrounding their yearly theme - this year, BE HERE.
