Behind The Scenes: Supershow!

With big colorful banners covering the hallways and announcing its arrival, you might be wondering, what is Supershow? It’s hosted by the student-run International Club every year. Club president, senior Susan Tran, writes:

“International Club aims to promote the diversity here at Warren Township High School. We celebrate unity in diversity by teaching our members about different cultures, whether it is through presenting, doing activities, and/or serving global cuisine. Learning about the world brings students together and we are glad to be a part of that.

Every January, IC hosts Supershow, or Warren’s annual cultural and talent showcase. Our 4000-student high school is incredibly diverse in a multitude ways, whether it is ethnic and cultural diversity or simply diversity of talent and character. Although show night isn’t until January, preparation starts in October as we start to advertise for auditions in December. Rehearsals run through January and cultivate in a two-hour show at the end of the month. Our past acts have included hip-hop choreography, bands, solo singers, slam poetry, and plenty more. As Supershow is also a charity event, all proceeds from the $5 admission go to support an organization. In the past, we have supported Blue Lotus Buddhist Temple and Karam Foundation. Last year, we managed to raise about $2500 for Syrian refugees!

For Supershow 2018, International Club is supporting Water Mission. 100% of proceeds will go towards Hurricane Maria relief in Puerto Rico. Join us on Friday, January 26th at 7:00pm in the O’Plaine Auditorium!”
