The Sulphur Springs High School Blue Blazes are gearing up for their annual Spring Show this weekend in the Civic Center Auditorium.
This major production includes dancing, singing, special guest appearances, skit acting and more. Each year brings a new theme, routines, and special effects. This year’s theme is “Shine.” Students typically work all semester learning choreography, choreographing, making sets, as well as raising funds for lighting and costumes. The work is designed not only to show case the students’ abilities and hard work but to teach the students budgeting, advertising, communication, cooperation and design skills.
“After coming off of last year and not getting o have one, we are just super excited to be back on the stage performing this year in a live performance. We haven’t had too many of those this year,” Christie McCullough, Blue Blazes director. “Our theme is Shine. We think that’s an appropriate theme coming out of the crazy weird year that we’ve had.”
McCullough said the Blazes show will “take a journey on what makes us shine as people” and will also honor those in the community who do shine, with special recognition the role of those who have shined throughout the last year.
“We are just going to re-find the light inside us that burns and rekindle it Friday and Saturday nights,” the Blue Blazes director said. “If you need a little joy, if you need a little motivation, if you need a little toe-tapping, come join us. We’d love to see you back in this audience.
