The Hartselle High School Chorus will be presenting a Dessert Theater at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16, at the Life Center of First United Methodist Church. The dessert theater is $10 at the door, with the proceeds benefitting the choral department for improvements such as new risers and a new filing system for their music.
The dessert theater, themed “Music through the Decades,” is a smaller-scale version of what the group will present at the Spring Follies. Parents of chorus students will provide desserts and decorations for tables, HHS Chorus Director Kate Dupuis said.
Songs will include a “Footloose” medley, “Don’t Stop Believing,” “My Girl,” “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B,” “Jump Jive and Wail,” “Joyful, Joyful” from the movie Sister Act, some Beatles music and Lady Gaga’s “Telephone.”
The event is a sort of kick-off for a busy chorus schedule for the spring season, Dupuis said.
The students will attend a state evaluation on Wednesday, Feb. 27, in Birmingham. Chorus and Ensemble competition is in April, and their Spring concert is May 2.
The group’s annual Spring Follies will be held either at 7 p.m., Friday, March 15, at the Hartselle Civic Center, or at 7 p.m., Saturday, March 16, at the new High School on Bethel Road, if the new school is ready, Dupuis said.
This is Dupuis’ first year at Hartselle High School. She was hired for the position after previous HHS Director Wanda Thompson retired after 41 years of teaching chorus.
“It’s been a really good and rewarding year,” Dupuis said.
One of her students, junior Jesse Mashburn, won outstanding choral student for District One in November. Mashburn will be competing with a solo at the state competition in March.
