Making it to one of the world’s biggest stages hasn’t been easy.
Minnetonka High School
A group of high school students creates a climate report card for the city of Minnetonka.
Minnetonka High School student Reed Raarup might be young, but his artistic career is taking off.
The award-winning show Evita is typically thought of as a musical with a single female lead, but not in director Trent Boyum’s mind.
Boyum has given three talented Minnetonka High School actresses—Claire DesLauriers, Kalli Anderson and Lauren Strauss—the opportunity to play Argentina’s strong-willed Eva Peron by breaking up each section of her life into different roles.
“I am kind of relating it to running a relay race,” Boyum says. “All three girls are going to contribute and help build one big character.”
For the past three years, community members and others have gathered on America’s hungriest holiday to support the Minnetonka High School track and field and cross country teams at the Tonka Turkey Trot. The funds raised from the race go towards booster club expenses including additional coaches and equipment; some of the funds are also donated back to the community. This year, planners hope to see participant numbers surpass the 2012 turnout of 1,200.
