Jenkins Middle School students audition for the melodrama part of a February variety show being directed by Sonia Guy, a teacher with the school’s theater department.
“The entire production will be assembled like an old-fashioned vaudeville show with olio acts leading up to the headline production,” Guy said. “'Love Through the Ages' is the olio segment, and there will be an intermission with concessions, and then the melodrama to finish the evening.”
Guy said one unique aspect of the show is that Jenkins students will perform most of the music. “Very little canned music will be used,” she said.
Tickets are $2.50 per student and $5 per adult.
A daytime performance for local schools will be Feb. 12. Advance reservations are required. “This is a very affordable field trip for any school,” Guy said.
Evening performances will be Feb. 13-14 at 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale at the school.
