Show Choir Show Themes:
Our students are working very hard and we are so excited to debut our full shows for everyone, on the evening of February 21! Until then, here's a brief synopsis of what they're all about!

Both shows intersect through the works of William Shakespeare to create our overarching theme, To Thine Own Self Be True. 
Gold Rush's show is a retelling of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet through the lens of modern music and current events. Romeo comes from the Montague family who represent the punk genre while Juliet comes from the Capulet family who are representing hip-hop. Tybalt is a rapper, the Nurse is turned into a Destiny's Child style girl group, Romeo, Mercutio and Benvolio are a band of rag-tag Green Day punks. The group works to tell the classic story of love battling against hate in a dark world while incorporating songs from popular artists like Fall Out Boy, Beyonce, Billy Joel, as well as a piece from Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story. 

24 Carat's show takes its audience back to the 1600's when Shakespearean performances were performed entirely by men, including the female roles. We will meet our quirky group of ladies dressed as Shakespearean men and performing male roles much like the cross dressing done by Viola in Twelfth Night or Portia in The Merchant of Venice. The show blossoms into ideas of equality and feminism; what if women have been playing the roles all along? Girl power prevails through songs like "A Man's World" by James Brown, "We're Not Gonna Take It" by Twisted Sister and a Beyonce mash-up. A showcase of powerful young ladies shining for all to see. 

Thank you!
