On Saturday, Peachland Elementary School hosted its annual Variety Show, which included singing, dancing, music, magic and an assortment of talent.

The show consisted of 35 mind-boggling acts, with numerous performers. The theme for this event was, "Wild, Wild, West."

With 25 performers, the opening act was a true hit. The theme was, "City Meets the Country."

In the beginning, the city and the country collided. Then, there was a colossal dance off between the city and the country.

In the end, the city and the country united in friendship.

This mind-blowing opening act established the western mood.

The costumes used in this event were astounding. From something as fashionable as pop-star wear, to something as simple as neon shirts.

From city wear to true cowboy wear, from tie-dye shirts, to painted black shirts, the costumes definitely made this show rock.

My experience
I was really excited to be in the Variety Show, but I feared that the dance steps would be grueling to learn.
With some extra practice, we all mastered it.

Finally, the evening of the variety show arrived.
I threw on my costume, and anxiously waited to depart. It was as if I were going to explode from all the excitement. My excited mom drove me to Hart High School's Auditorium, and she assured me that I would do fine. Then, after a speedy rehearsal, we were "on."

We snapped a couple of glow sticks, and scampered to our positions. The curtains separated, and we began our dance.

My first moves were tentative, because I was nervous, but then I started to get into the groove. It was so much fun.

At the end, we all charged forward, as the crowd went wild with applause. I felt as if I had just won a million dollars.

In the end, I had a magnificent time doing the Peachland Variety Show. This event will definitely be something I will remember all my life.
