Spring Musical - Apr 27
The Soquel High Knights of the Square Stage are proud to announce their spring musical: Little Shop of Horrors. Performances are May 3, May 4, and May 5 at 7pm. All shows are in the Soquel High School MPR.

Little Shop of Horrors is a comedic rock musical about a lonely florist who discovers a plant the feeds on human blood. The plant promises to make our hero’s dreams come true, but at what cost? Blending sixties doo-wop with eighties synth, this rock musical is a true crowdpleaser!

School Prom Transportation Information
Prom season is fast approaching, so this is a good opportunity to remind students and parents of the potential problems that can occur when hiring an unlicensed transportation carrier. Unlicensed carriers operate illegally; fail to demonstrate compliance with insurance, safety, and driver requirements; and are less likely to operate safe vehicles. While there is no guarantee that a ride with a licensed carrier will be problem-free, parents and students are less likely to encounter problems with a licensed company.  Make sure that you receive a written contract for the transportation and check the company’s license (TCP) number at
