FFHS musical revue set for next week

Sam Odrowski

Fort Frances High School students will be bringing some rays of sunshine into the Townshend Theatre on Nov. 8-10 for their “Shades of Yellow and Sunshine”-themed fall musical revue.
Starting at 7 p.m. each night, the students will be singing and dancing to a variety of music that will keep the audience in suspense all night long.
“People who come out can look forward to some surprises,” FFHS music teacher Lee-Anne Maraj Hines enthused.
From the Beatles to Coldplay, there will be a great mix of music that is set to entertain those who attend.
There are several group numbers that have been choreographed by former dance teacher Sherree Denby, as well as solos, duets, and some small group performances.
“It will be a very entertaining evening,” Hines promised. “They’re a very, very talented group.”
Students will be dressed up in matching “Muskie Gold” coloured T-shirts to reflect the “Shades of Yellow and Sunshine” theme.
Those who are putting on the performance have been preparing since early September–and some even began practising over the summer, Hines noted.
“They work hard and they’re very dedicated,” she remarked.
“I am so impressed by the talent these young people have.”
Hines added the students have been pretty on board with her creative ideas and unconventional twists on their performances.
“It’s not hard to push them out of their comfort zones,” she noted. “Most of the time they are willing to go for it.”
Hines encourages anyone who enjoys live music, live performances, or live entertainment to attend the musical revue.
“Come on out, buy a ticket, and enjoy the show,” she urged.
Tickets, which cost $10 for adults or $8 for students/seniors, are available at Northwoods Gallery & Gifts and at the door.
The cast kindly asks that people refrain from applying fragrances before attending the shows as some members have fragrance allergies and sensitivities.
