Tease your hair, do your makeup, and get those rhinestones! That’s right, it’s almost time for our school’s annual Spring Spectacular! Every year show choirs put on a final show for everyone to come and enjoy with something new to offer.
“Each year is a different theme,” junior Sound System member Elena Eberwine said. “A couple years ago was ‘Phantom of the Opera,’ last year it was ‘Chicago’ and this year’s theme is ‘Hoosier Hysteria.’”
The Hoosier Hysteria theme this year includes a mix of old favorites and new pop music.
As a member of Debtones, the all female award-winning choir, Junior Lauren Cooley said that the theme includes “pieces from Indiana’s own,: John Mellencamp, Cole Porter and Michael Jackson. We also include a section dedicated to the Indy 500.”
There is a lot of time, preparation and rhinestones that go into the final show of the year, keeping these students busy.
“We practice just about every day for two weeks on stage to prepare for the show,” Eberwine said.
The show is produced by all of the show choirs together and also accompanied by a special guest to make for a bigger and better performance and experience.
“All of the show choirs will be doing multiple singing and dancing numbers, while ‘CG Singers’ and the beginning choirs will help to feature and sing back up for the guest Josh Kaufman, winner of The Voice,” Eberwine said.
Being the last show of the year, it can be a very emotional one, especially for the seniors.
“The show is typically staged with seniors at the front, to give them a great last show on the high school stage,” Cooley said.
Spring Spectacular is an annual event so make sure to get tickets to assure a seat for an unforgettable experience.
