Students at Central Collegiate are busy rehearsing
It’s a show with a difference.
Central Collegiate’s Christmas production ‘Rockin’ Around the Christmas Glee’ will feature music, dance, song and acting at the Mae Wilson Theatre on Nov. 25 and 26 at 7:30 p.m.
Teacher Robbie Bedford-Beesley, who is the director along with Barbara Holzer, said the show will be great entertainment for everyone. It was written by her husband Jeff Beesley.
“We have a real mix of traditional Christmas music. There’s some rock ‘n’ roll with some drama with acting sprinkled in between to bring it all together,” she said.
Some of the show has been inspired by the hit television series Glee.
“The music is very upbeat and the students love dancing and singing and love to perform and the show has really brought that to the forefront.
“These students love Glee and so we have created our own Glee club and we hope to showcase them in this concert,” she said.
