Mr. BA rescheduled for Oct. 9

Mr. BA is an annual fundraiser that helps fund the Broken Arrow Choir organization. Men are given the opportunity to show their community their school spirit, secret talents, and competitiveness. The show was originally scheduled for Sept. 27 but has now been moved to Oct. 9. 

The fundraiser consists of an all-male pageant that includes contestants who are nominated from various campus organizations.

“I decided to do Mr. BA because a friend of mine participated last year and really enjoyed it,” junior Augustus Ricks said. “I’m still trying to figure out what talent I am going to do but other than that, I am truly excited to participate.”

Ricks will represent the yearbook staff as Mr. Yearbook in the competition.

Candidates are nominated by their sponsors and friends within their club and/or team. Though they may not be in the club or athletic teams, men can choose to still represent it by applying with Choir Director Justin Rosser.

“The event holds up to 1,500 people and we’re hoping to sell all tickets,” Rosser said. “We want to draw a crowd because it helps support Broken Arrow Choirs.”

Students are encouraged to participate in this event because it allows them to reach new boundaries and open themselves up to their community.

“My talent is a showstopper,” Mr. Expanding Your Horizons, Ethan Haldeman said. “I plan on wowing the crowd during the show.”

Every club, team, or official Broken Arrow High School activity group is allowed to submit a male candidate to represent them. Participants do not have to be members of the group.

The event is open to the public, and tickets are available for only $10 at the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center. The event starts at 7 p.m.
