Students prepare ‘creepy’ stage show
A tradition will continue beginning tonight at the Port Aransas Community Theatre when the sixth annual Port Aransas High School Halloween Show takes to the stage.
The show will go on tonight, Thursday, Oct. 27, tomorrow, Friday, Oct. 28 and Saturday, Oct. 29, as scheduled. Curtain time is 7 p.m. for each performance. A matinee performance originally scheduled for Sunday has been cancelled, drama director Gary Mott said.
Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for children 12 and under at the door.
The Halloween Show has become a tradition since Mott started it six years ago. It began with a dance routine set to a Michael Jackson video; older students have taught underclassmen, music has been added and the production has been expanded from the original six theater students to 40, Mott said.
“The show this year is a music medley about Halloween, monsters and assorted creepy venues,” he said. “It’s a fun show -- it’s all about dancing, and this year I’ve included kiddos from kindergarten through middle school to join in. In all, more than 50 kids will participate.”
While some youngsters will experience their first time on stage, others, such as seniors, will perform their last Halloween Show. “The Halloween Show is our major fundraiser, where we hope to raise enough money to attend the Renaissance Festival theatre shows and the new shows performed every year at Fiesta Texas,” Mott said.
