Family dances planned for May 8

EMCS Musical Theatre is hosting a dance for all ages

It appears that good clean fun can be had at high school.

For its second year now, EMCS Musical Theatre will be hosting a community family dance. The footloose magic happens on Thursday, May 8, beginning at 7 p.m. and wraps up at 9. It will take place at the Edward Milne community theatre, and tickets are $4 per person, or $10 for the entire family.

According to Jill Fader, the director and producer of musical theatre at Journey middle school, the event  was initiated “to raise money to support the musical theatre at EMCS and Journey middle school.” Last year they raised over $1,000, and this year they are aiming to double that amount.

As to where the money goes, Fader provided an extensive list.

“The money goes to sound and light equipment, batteries for microphones, sets, props, costumes, programs, publicity, rental of theatre, (and) custodians,” she details. The need is there.

The event is coordinated by the junior and senior musical theatre students from both EMCS and Journey, along with the support of teachers Mrs. McLellan, Sue Garat and Paul McLellan. It is an all-ages event, and the invitation is extended to the community of Sooke.

Besides enjoying a live performance from the band, Matheson, participants will be able to see the EMCS Musical Theatre performing 2 Reflections from their upcoming show.

Hotdogs and popcorn can be purchased at the event.

Tickets can be purchased at EMCS (at the office in advance, or at the door on the day of the dance) or from Shoppers Drug Mart.
