In a tradition spanning over eight decades, Class Skit Night at Lynbrook High School has become one of the most anticipated and well-attended events of the year.
Students worked for weeks to create their own original scripts, costumes, sets and choreography, entertaining family and fellow classmates with their energy, originality and humor.
The theme of this year’s competition was “Friends Forever.”
Mario and Luigi of the Super Mario Brothers video game were the subjects of the freshman skit. The sophomore skit tested the friendship of Shrek and Donkey. The characters from the Scooby Doo cartoons solved a mummy movie mystery in the junior skit. The seniors finished up the show with a sequel to “Grease” in which everyone worked together to save Rydell High.
All the skits, which featured elaborate sets, costumes and dance numbers, were laced with witty puns and clever cultural references. Performances were judged by five separate criteria: skits, scenery, costumes, box and banner.
