Red River production
I.M.I.4.U.2.C. (I am I for you to see) is currently in its 19th season at Red River High School. This traveling production brings lessons in character education to elementary students in the Grand Forks Public Schools as well as surrounding areas. The scope of the production reaches as far north as Crystal and as south as Hillsboro, N.D., and from Larimore, N.D., to East Grand Forks and Fisher, Minn. Larry Hoiberg, former superintendent of elementary schools, helped organize the traveling aspect, and Jody Thompson has continued this initiative ensuring that more than 7,000 students see the production every year.
I.M.I.'s themes vary from year to year, and the students and directors create original skits or re-vamp past skits to fit a theme that is chosen by the Grand Forks Public Schools. Topics have included literacy, tolerance, cooperation, welcoming new students, and listening to teachers/parents. This year's skits carry the themes of showing respect, teasing, and how people can be bullied via text message and e-mail. The performance relates to the "Six Pillars of Character," which are respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, trustworthiness, and citizenship.
This year's directing team is Jamie Toutenhoofd, Allison Peterson, Joey Freestone, Lindsay Escobar and Dean Opp. Student Director is Kaylee Scheer.
