Plymouth High School’s Pompon team held their first ever winter-themed variety show in the Gloria Logan Auditorium Dec. 17 with shows at 1:30 p.m. and at 7 p.m. The “Winter Spectacular” showcased performances from their competition routine, holiday-themed routines, a Daddy/Daughter Dance, a Guy/Girl dance and guest performances by individual singers as well as the Salem, Plymouth and Canton Middle School Pompon teams.

Plymouth Varsity Pompon Coach Taryn Holowicki was pleased with how the show came together. “This is the first year since I’ve been with the team that we’ve been able to have two shows, so that’s been really cool and different,” said Holowicki. “We have the Christmas theme so it’s fun and I think people like it.” Holowicki said the team has been working on the show since the beginning of November.

In the past years Plymouth Pom held their variety show in April with show themes like Broadway or decades, but this was their first year with holiday themed performances.

“It’s definitely more stressful during [winter] because we have states coming up, but I really like it because the theme is cute and it’s different from what we’ve done in the past,” said Plymouth senior and Varsity Saberette Brittany King.

The evening started off with a slideshow with pictures of the team throughout the season, followed by Canton junior Zoe Stirrett performing the National Anthem. Mixed in with the Pom routines were singing acts including Plymouth sophomores Susie Shelton and Kayleigh Belanger’s cover of “Let it Go” and Plymouth senior Binyah Howard’s performance of “Bottled.”

The evening finished off with recognition for all of the seniors on the team and then the varsity team performed their traditional guy/girl dance.

“I think the guy/girl might be my [favorite performance],” said Erin Berger, Plymouth senior.
