What happens to old television shows and cartoons?

Well, some of them end up on "TV Land’s" programming list, some on "Nick at Nite" and others, well, they land in St. Joseph High School’s variety show.

The school’s 26th Annual Variety Show is just around the corner and this year’s event features a blast from the television past.

"Toonin’ in and Syndin’ out," Maria Whaley, the show’s faculty advisor said, will feature some of the TV classic’s everyone knows – with a twist. Students at the school will sing and dance their way through shows such as "Scooby Doo," "Flintstones," "Peanuts," "Ghost Busters," "I Dream of Jeannie," and, yes, "The Brady Bunch" – complete with the almost-required Davy Jones guest appearance.

Whaley said that this year’s theme was proposed and written by the students. She said about 42 students are involved in the show’s production.

This week, Whaley said, students are donning costumes as the group goes into the final week of practice. The show will open on March 8 at 8 p.m.

This year, Whaley said, the students are taking the show on the road.

In response to MR/DD Month during March, students will perform the show for students at the Open Door School on Wednesday.
