Neoga: The cast and crew of Neoga High School’s N.O.T. Theater are proud to present “The Addams Family”!
The Addams Family is the story of a devilishly delightful, close-knit family on the night their only daughter, Wednesday, reveals her engagement to a “normal” young man. This sends both families into a downward spiral laced with trickery, secrets, and amor! The characters’ dark, quick wit will keep you laughing as potions are drank, arrows are flung, and love triumphs! Gabe Henderson and Blair Banning star as Gomez and Morticia Addams. Wednesday will be played by both Brooke Rupel and Ellie Clark. Lucas Beineke will be played by Reece Ballinger and Josh Fraser is Lurch.
Tickets go on sale Monday 10/16/2017 in the Neoga Junior/Senior High School office during the hours of 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Cost: $6.00 for adults and $4.00 for students. Seating is limited and all attendees must present a ticket. Tickets may be available at the door for that night’s show providing the show is not sold out.
The Addams Family opens on Halloween night at 7:00 p.m. and will continue on Wednesday, 11/1 with a free matinee (ticket not required) for senior citizens only at 12:30 p.m. Show times resume on Thursday, 11/2 at 7:00 p.m., Friday 11/3 at 7:00 p.m., and Saturday 11/4 at 2:00 p.m. as well as a final performance at 7:00 p.m. that evening.
We just received results from the ILMEA auditions. Neoga is sending 13 students to the ILMEA District 5 Festival in November, with 4 of those being eligible for All-State. We will find out if any made All-State after the District Festivals are over. Congratulations!!
JH Jazz Band:
We are very proud of all their hard work and look forward to the coming festivals.
Students in Mrs. Brummer's Jr. High Spanish class have been working on vocabulary and sentence structure. Students were asked to illustrate and describe themselves. The results were compiled in an All About Me book.

For the third time, Neoga’s high school band is going to the IHSA State Girls Tournaments. For the band to be accepted, they had to submit a recording of them playing some of their pep band songs and a video of them playing at a game. Mr. David Roush the band director put together an amazing set list to record. From playing “Louie Louie” to “Enter Sandman” the band truly had a blast recording. They go against several schools, and only the best gets picked. This achievement makes them one of the best in the state who applied. They will be playing on November 10th in Bloomington, IL, at the Redbird Arena at ISU. Way to go, band!
