If you don’t have tickets for next week’s production of The Big Bad Musical (March 1-3 @ 7 p.m.) you are going to miss out on an outstanding production. I’ve been attending KCS musicals for the past thirteen years: Aladdin, Annie, Fiddler on the Roof, Grease (the elementary school version of course!), The Sound of Music, as well as many others. I can still remember watching my first KCS musical, Alice in Wonderland, with my daughter, Alyssa. We marveled over the amazing costumes (especially the caterpillar) and the terrific sets. But what I loved most was seeing and listening to the students on stage singing and participating in a production that would have terrified me to be part of when I was their age. The last musical I was involved in was in grade 3. I was a rock. A piece of cardboard in the shape of a boulder was painted gray. The teacher’s instructions were as follows: “Derek, you are the rock in this production. I want you to hold this up on the stage and crouch behind it. The audience shouldn’t see you.” My parents are still laughing about this one.
There are still a few remaining seats for Saturday night. Don’t delay. From the sounds of the rehearsals that make their way up to my office every Wednesday afternoon, next week’s shows promise to be another KCS hit.
