Jukebox Variety Show 2019 brings stage and screen to PHS


The Perry Vocal Music Department was on display Saturday at the Perry Performing Arts Center, with the annual Jukebox Variety Show entertainding the stading-room-only crowd in the Perry Performing Arts Center.

Stage and Screen was the theme of this year’s event, and the 24 songs ranged from Broadway show tunes to hits from Hollywood musicals, with the lineup showcasing solo performances, duets and group numbers by Perry’s student musicians.

A highlight was the tune “A Millions Dreams,” featured in the movie “The Greatest Showman,” was performed by Kid’s Camp students in kindergarten through fifth grade. The PHS Choirs, Treble Clef Choir, Bass Clef Choir and Nota Azul also performed.

The PHS Vocal Music Department is headed by Jenn Nelson.

Many generous audience members made donation in support of the PHS Vocal Music Department.

You’re Welcome by Lin-Manuel Miranda

Okay, okay, I see what’s happening here.
You’re face to face with greatness, and it’s strange.
You don’t even know how you feel.
It’s adorable!
Well, it’s nice to see that humans never change.

Open your eyes. Let’s begin.
Yes, it’s really me. It’s Maui: breathe it in!

I know it’s a lot: the hair, the bod!
When you’re staring at a demi-god.

What can I say except you’re welcome
For the tides, the sun, the sky?
Hey, it’s okay. It’s okay.
You’re welcome.
I’m just an ordinary demi-guy.

What has two thumbs that pulled up the sky
When you were waddling yay high?
This guy!

When the nights got cold,
Who stole you fire from down below?
You’re lookin’ at him, yo.

Oh, also I lassoed the sun —
You’re welcome! —
To stretch the days and bring you fun.

Also I harnessed the breeze —
You’re welcome! —
To fill your sails and shake your trees.

So what can I say except you’re welcome
For the islands I pulled from the sea?
There’s no need to pray. It’s okay.
You’re welcome!
Ha, I guess it’s just my way of being me.
You’re welcome!
You’re welcome!

Well, come to think of it,
Kid, honestly I can go on and on.
I can explain every natural phenomenon,
The tide, the grass, the ground. Oh,
That was Maui just messing around.

I killed an eel.
I buried its guts.
Sprouted a tree, now you got coconuts.
What’s the lesson?
What is the take-away?
Don’t mess with Maui when he’s on the break-away.

And the tapestry here on my skin
Is a map of the victories I win.
Look where I’ve been.
I make everything happen.
Look at that mini-Maui just tippity-tappin’.

Well, anyway, let me say. ‘You’re welcome
For the wonderful world you know.’
Hey, it’s okay. It’s okay.
You’re welcome!
Well, come to think of it, I gotta go.

Hey, it’s your day to say you’re welcome
‘Cause I’m gonna need that boat.
I’m sailing away, away.
You’re welcome!
‘Cause Maui can do anything but float.

You’re welcome!
You’re welcome!
And thank you!
