Grads trip light fantastic in fashion show

Edward Milne Community School is gearing up for a Grad Fashion Show

Edward Milne Community School is gearing up for a Grad Fashion Show.

This year’s group is excited, practiced and ready to make this one their best show yet.

There are nearly 50 students, on stage or behind the scenes, working evenings and weekends to prepare a night to remember. Practices are paying off, tuxedos have been ordered and prom dress alterations are complete.

Besides the traditional prom scenes, local community clothing stores have come together to support the grads in their efforts by lending themed clothing and accessories for fun music numbers.

Many past grads have stopped in to lend their dresses and show their support.  The show is set for a 7 p.m. tonight (March 2) at Edward Milne Community School theatre.

Tickets ($10 and $8 for students) are on sale at the main office of EMCS as well as Shoppers Drug Mart. The show usually gets sold out.

This fundraising event helps students pay for prom and graduation expenses.
