Oct 25, 2019

MATTAPOISETT — To celebrate homecoming weekend, Old Rochester Regional High School students performed in a variety of skits in a pep rally on Friday, Oct. 25. 

Skits were broken up by grade level for the homecoming pep rally, with each skit involving the school’s Bulldog mascot being captured, and then returned or recaptured by the group.

Performers in the freshman class based their skit on the “Despicable Me” movie, while sophomores paid homage to the popular animated series “Avatar, the Last Airbender.” Juniors played into the popular “Storm Area 51” internet movement (changing the name to Area 21 for their graduation year) and the senior class based their skit on High School Musical.

In Jest, some of the skits poked fun at Seekonk High School, ORR’s opponent on the football field later that night. In the Junior’s Skit, the S.B.I, or “Seekonk Bureau of Investigation” tried to stop students from storming Area 21, and getting the Bulldog.

Seekonk also played the role of the antagonists in the Senior’s High School Musical Skit.
