Williams High School’s auditorium and chorus room are buzzing with excitement this time of year. George Bulldog and his friends are back to “win the big game” this fall with more talent and enthusiasm than ever. “George Draws a Blank” is being performed by the choral department under the direction of Laura Sam and Lucas Cecil at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2012, in the Williams High School auditorium, 1307 S. Church St., Burlington.
   The show was written and directed by senior Madeline Perrou and centers on George Bulldog, the star quarterback for Williams, getting a strange case of amnesia. George is being played by Josh Williams, a multi-talented senior who is “kind of a star” at our school.

The show’s title is in reference to the 60th anniversary of the school’s founding, which was in the fall of 1951. The show centers around George Bulldog, the “star quarterback” of the Williams Bulldogs football team, and his friends as they try to “win the big game.”

The show will be at 7 p.m. Sept. 26, 2011, in the Williams High School Auditorium, 1307 S. Church St., Burlington. Tickets are $5 at the door.

George is portrayed by senior Cameron Vaughn. George’s friends are all set to celebrate his 60th birthday until they receive an invitation from pop star Miley Cyrus to attend a lavish Super Sweet Sixtieth birthday bash, a reference to the MTV show “My Super Sweet Sixteen.”
