The show will feature Calhoun's loveliest ladies, CHS Showgirls, Vandalia Singers, CHS Choir, CHS Theatre Class and the Devilaires.
The evening's selections will be rock music spanning from the 1970's into the late 1980's with music by groups such as Bon Jovi, Journey, Fleetwood Mac, Twisted Sister, Michael Jackson and Joan Jett.
The group will also perform selections from the 1975 rock musical, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Senior member Alison Gumbarevic stated, "We've worked our tails off and can't wait for the audience to witness our end product. People loved last year, but they're going to be amazed at how much we've grown as a group and as performers."
This year's Master of Ceremony is Senior, Ray Davis. Ray (pictured left) accepted the role of emcee early in the fall and is excited to take his place center stage.
"Last year, Quentin Murphy did a fantastic job as our emcee and I know Ray will fill his shoes and keep our audience entertained," said CHS choir director Eileen Marsh.
"It's so cool to see so many students working hard to put on a show of this magnitude," says assistant director Gina Stump.
"People don't realize how many hours these kids put into this show. They start in early December a couple of nights a week and by mid April they are in the theatre every night until around 8. The week of the show we've kept them as late as 10," says Marsh.
It is evident that the arts are alive and well at CHS and there is no better way to say thanks than filling the seats on opening night. Ticket prices to be announced.
