Curtain Goes Up on Lakeridge Company Variety Show This Week

CurtainThe curtain goes up on the 2013 edition of the Lakeridge Company Variety Show this Thursday, at 7:30 p.m. in the Lakeridge auditorium. In the audience will be beaming parents, spirited friends, and you, if you’re lucky. It’s hard to find better entertainment for $12 and it’s right here in your hometown.

Last year I gave you five reasons to catch the show, but if you need more prodding, or if you just want to relive some of the Variety Show’s better moments, check out some of the past performances on YouTube. They will give you a feel for the energy, creativity and talent that will come bursting out on stage once that curtain goes up.

♫I’ll start off my recommendations with one of my daughter Casey’s performances, singing “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz in 2009.

Dancing in the Moonlight from the 2011 show.

♫Lucy Martin singing, “I Can’t Make You Love Me,” at the 2008 performance.

“I Feel Love” featuring Kent Jenkins on his homemade Blue Manesque percussion instrument in the 2009 show.

Fame performed by the entire 2008 Company cast.

♫A beautiful a cappella rendition of the Scottish folk song, “Loch Lomond” performed by eight kilt-wearing Lakeridge boys in 2009.

♫What talent–an entire number, “Lunch” using body percussion from the 2009 show. This is the most popular number I found, with over 81,000 YouTube views.

So go see the real thing LIVE this weekend. Performances are Thursday, April 18 through Saturday, April 20 at 7:30 p.m. and a 2:00 p.m. show on Saturday afternoon. Tickets are $12 for adults/$8 for children, seniors and students and can be purchased online, at the school, or at the box office before the show. 1235 Overlook Drive, 503.534.2319.
