Starting in 1972 under the direction of Mr. Bleyle, CLUB SHOW was a variety show created and designed by the students to showcase their talents. 42 years later, the set-up has changed, but the function remains the same… producing a variety show that showcases the various talents of our students at New Riegel.
As in past years, CLUB SHOW is open to any student in grades 5-12 who wishes to be involved. This gives students who may not be enrolled in a music class the chance to be on the stage, make music, and have a little bit of fun in the process! CLUB SHOW is almost solely designed and run by the students. It was their responsibility to select music, sign up for rehearsal times, and decide on their staging and any choreography they may want to add. This year, all of the big group numbers are selections from musical productions, such as “Oliver”, “The Producers” and “13 – The Musical”.
To give the students a real performance experience, we have brought in ‘Hoopty Hoo & the Such’ again to be our live stage band. The gentlemen in ‘Hoopty’ are wonderful people and amazing musicians who work very well with our students in an encouraging and positive way. We are very lucky to have ‘Hoopty’ work with us again this year!
CLUB SHOW performances will be Friday, October 31 at 7:00pm and Sunday, November 2 at 2:00pm. Admission is $5 for students, $8 for adults and FREE for students under school age. Tickets are available at the door.
