The annual dance and lip syncing competition, Putting on the Hitz (POTH), will take place Dec. 16 from 7-9 p.m. in the auditorium. This tradition is put together by Senior Planning and incorporates dances, skits, club act competitions, class act competitions and individual act competitions. 

This year’s theme is reality TV shows, with the title being “Keeping Up With The Patriots,” a play on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” 

We have so many cool ideas for skit ideas that we think the whole school will enjoy, and be familiar with.”

We can expect to see funny and creative skits put on during POTH, especially parodies from reality shows. “We have so many cool ideas for skit ideas that we think the whole school will enjoy, and be familiar with,” Senior Planner Charlotte Christovich said. 

The Senior Planners have a POTH committee and have assigned people to  roles and responsibilities. They have been making skits, making posters, getting other grades involved and hosting an interest meeting during lunch for those interested in being a part of it.

Senior Planner Ethan Fayne has been working hard to get everything ready for POTH. “Coordinating POTH has been so much fun. I didn’t know how much effort actually went into making POTH happen but I’m excited to see what everything thinks about it when it gets here,” Fayne said.

Clubs that perform include the Woottonettes, poms, drumline and SGA. Anyone who wants to compete as an individual act can audition. Auditions will be Nov. 15-17 and administered by Senior Planners. 

The freshman, sophomores and juniors compete against each other for the chance to win money for their grade. Anyone in the grade can participate. Each grade is to create the music on their own and coordinate a dance that they will perform the day of POTH. This is a fun way to work with your classmates and meet new people in your grade.

Senior Planning has also been using this time to hand pick teacher judges for the competition. The winners receive money.  

Students are excited for this event, especially after it being virtual last year. Senior class officer Jasmine Gong is looking forward to it. “We are currently designing the merchandise and filming the skits. I’m very excited to see it all come to fruition, so mark your calendars for Dec. 16,” Gong said.
