Theatre and Classes

All the world's a stage but especially Davis right now. Davis High's production of Standing on Ceremony opens this weekend and Harper Junior High's Hairspray opens the next. Next week are also auditions for Acme Theatre's spring show The Jungle Book (a modern version) which are open to all 9th-12th graders. Rocket talks about meeting the Hairspray cast at Harper literally half an hour ago and talking to them about theatre opportunities at the high school. These opportunities include DHS Drama and Acme but also classes like stagecraft and drama that DJUSD students may want to consider enrolling in before they submit their course request applications. Rocket also talks about his experiences at the debate tournament he attended this past weekend. There are, of course, bad jokes too.

Rocket Radio for 5:30pm on Feb 28th, 2017

Happy Mardi Gras! In this show Rocket reads from a packet on the hollow Earth theory that's been laying around the studio for the past few weeks. It's really weird and details different species of aliens, some of which are humanoid and others of which look more like reptiles. It's a wild experience. Rocket reads about the development of radio in the 1930's and 40's from his history textbook (it's actually interesting, though). There are also some hilarious jokes featured on the show. Music includes "Nantes" by Beirut because of France and Mardi Gras, "Starlight" by Muse because of Moonlight winning picture of the year at the Oscars, and "How Would You Feel (Paean)" by Ed Sheeran from his next album that drops this week.

1920's

Welcome to the 1920's. A lot of DJUSD is dealing with this time period right now: The Great Gatsby, the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, 1929 Night at Da Vinci High School. If you're not familiar with 1929 night, you should familiarize yourself because it's a really cool event. It's Da Vinci's Junior Class project and the event itself is this upcoming Friday. Visitors can immerse themselves in 1929 while students educate them on topics ranging from science to culture. Rocket reads straight from his history textbook about an important cultural item that emerged in this time period: radio. He also reads about the continued development of radio in the 1930's. Rocket talks about the Great Gatsby for a while (spoilers!), mostly just about how good it is. Rocket reviews a couple movies relevant to Gatsby that his class watched in English. Jamie Johnson's Born Rich and The One Percent.
