Horace Mann Laboratory School students performed “The Magic Jukebox” Thursday, May 14, to a crowd in the Mary Linn Auditorium at the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts at Northwest Missouri State University. 

The performance featured the school’s fifth and sixth graders and its Bearcat Choir. “The Magic Jukebox” is a musical based on pop and dance songs throughout the decades. Featured songs were “Wooly Bully,” “It Don’t Mean a Thing,” “Sing, Sing , Sing,” “Twang that Thang,” “Locomotion,” “Rockin’ Robin,” “Land of a Thousand Dances,” “Little Shop of Horrors,” “Rocky Top” and “Dancin’ in the Street.” 

Horace Mann music instructor Catherine McAdams directed the show with assistance from Dave Weichinger, fifth/sixth grade instructor; Cathi Schwienebart, fifth/sixth assistant; LeDonna McIntosh, art instructor; and Jenna Tyler, a freshman music education major at Northwest. The fifth and sixth grade band, directed by Northwest music education students Audrey Kubayko and Ryan Linke, performed “Zombie Stomp” and “Starburst Fanfare.” 

Horace Mann is located on the Northwest campus and features a unique learning experience that emphasizes individualized instruction, hands-on learning and a low teacher-to-student ratio. For more information, visit www.nwmissouri.edu/horacemann.
