Student reviewer from Rockwood Summit says the ensemble and crew from "Any Number Can Die" did not disappoint in either thrilling the audience or making it laugh.
Thursday, November 15, 2012
By Brian Ball Rockwood Summit High School As the curtain opened for the production of Any Number Can Die by Fred Carmichael at Northwest High School the mysteries started right from the start. At Raven’s Head mansion at precisely 12 o'clock, the will of the deceased Cedric Russell is to be read, but abnormal things occur and it turns into a murder scene. This two-hour, three-act show is sure to be a thrilling comedy. The entire ensemble was fit to be on the stage. The lines were precise, the comedy was displayed at just the right moment, and every actor knew their purpose. Despite the projection issue in the first act, the ensemble made adequate adjustments to the second and third act. The ensemble painted a clear picture of who each …

Nick Hoth takes over the program at Northwest High School.
Northwest High School’s new football coach has his work cut out for him. Nick Hoth walked into a team that went 0-10 last season and didn’t score more than one touchdown in a game. But the new coach said he’s impressed by what he’s seen so far in the team’s attitude. “I knew there would be some rebuilding to do, but the kids are hungry for success,” he said. “They’re buying in and doing everything I ask and a lot of it is brand new to them.” Hoth, originally from St. Charles, has spent the last six years coaching football in Mexico, MO. He was hired in late March and met some of the students before school let out for the summer. The biggest thing players had to get used to was a fast-paced practice, Hoth said. His style involves constant …
