SHS to present dessert theater

Approximately 60 performers will dance and sing across the stage as Shelbyville High School presents its biennial dessert theater on March 7 and 8.

“Let Them Eat Cake” is a collection of 13 different acts presented by the school’s Fine Arts Department. The show will highlight great music from many genres. Some featured titles are: “Just the Way You Are/ Just a Dream”, “What is this Feeling”, “Seize the Day”, and “Wagon Wheel”, “Roar”, and “All That Jazz”. The show finale is “Lean on Me”.

“The cast auditioned during the latter part of January and has rehearsed for six weeks,” said coordinator Wendy Griesemer. “We have lots of help from the parents and other SHS students with serving and make-up.”

Live entertainment will be offered during the dessert before the show. Dessert menu includes cherry cheesecake, Texas cake, lemon cake, carrot cake, and angel food cake, coffee and tea. Dessert will be served beginning at 7 p.m. in the school gym. The show will begin immediately after dessert.

Directors are Patty Finks, vocal music; Jessica Knearem, choreographer; and Wendy Griesemer, coordinator. Combo musicians are Thom Shafer, percussion; Kevin Herron, bass; and Patty Finks, keyboard. Jim Finks will serve as Master of Ceremonies.

Ticket sales begin Monday, February 24, in the school office. Reserved seating is $8 per ticket with table of four or eight available as well as individual seats.
