The theme for this year’s spring show, presented by the SSHS Blue Blazes Drill Team, is “I’ve Got the Music in Me.” It will take place this Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. each night in the high school auditorium. Tickets are on sale early from Blue Blazes’ members and at the high school office. Tickets will also be available at the door.
Blue Blazes Director Christie McCullough, in her eleventh year, said this year’s show focuses on the role of music in our daily lives and it’s ability to affect our mood. The show will feature the 55th line of the Blue Blazes, their officers, the Sparks–a dozen new members of the Blue Blazes for next year–and members of Ms. McCullough’s dance classes. Mike Dodd will sing and serve as a crew member. Sydney Hawkins will sing and will serve as an emcee along with Rachel Bramlett and Laney Ashford from the theatre department.
Ms. McCullough said there will be four big production numbers with each being very different. The dancers will have a different costume for each dance number. Expect some smoke and perhaps whistles and bells as Steven Kramer is back working on the production. Former Blue Blazes will be encouraged to come on stage for the end of show Sister Circle.
Ms. McCullough said this has been a fun show to do. She’s glad to be in the auditorium after having to do the show in the tight quarters of the high school gym last year while the auditorium was being renovated.
