When students returned from Christmas break in early January, the Sulphur Springs High School Blue Blazes Drill Team began to work on this year’s Spring Show.

Blue Blazes Director Christie McCullough, Wednesday at Jay Hodge Chevrolet, said the theme to this year’s show will be “Beyond the Velvet Rope.”She said it will attempt to provide a look at the lifestyles of VIP’s.

This year’s show will take place April 24-25 at the SSHS Auditorium.

Ms. McCullough said tickets would be available around the first of April this year, earlier than usual. She said there would again be on-line sales. General Admission tickets will be available.

Ms. McCullough said there would also be VIP tickets that were started the year the show was performed in the high school gym during renovation of the Auditorium. Those tickets include early admission to the show so seats can be picked out.

Ms. McCullough also announced a new type of ticket she called Platinum VIP tickets. This package includes tickets for both night’s show. She said other perks were being worked on but she promised it would be a good package. She said it would also allow admission to a special pre-show reception, that will feature hors d’oeuvres prepared by the Culinary Class at the high school. Ms. McCullough said the event would be a real experience and would include some VIP giveaways.

She thanked Jay Hodge Chevrolet for sponsoring the reception and for being a title sponsor for the Spring Show. Ms. McCullough explained the Spring Show is a community sponsored event.

She said it is considered a fundraiser for the Blue Blazes since they charge admission. Members of the Blue Blazes solicit program ads and sponsorships. Ms. McCullough said she appreciated all the show’s sponsors. She said “Oh, wow!” moments don’t come cheap and added they are getting more expensive all the time.

She said lots of students other than Blazes are involved in the production.

Bill Owens with Jay Hodge Chevrolet, whose daughter Aley is the Blue Blazes Captain this year, said the Blue Blazes put on a great show that he called a first class extravaganza that you would pay more to see somewhere else. Owens said Jay Hodge Chevrolet was glad to be a part of the Spring Show.
