CONWAY — The Kennett High School Performing Arts Department invites the community and visitors to the Mount Washington Valley to celebrate the spirit of Valentine’s Day with its fourth annual “Evening with the Arts” on Saturday, Feb. 15, at 7 p.m. in the Loynd Auditorium at the school.
The evening will include performances by the Kennett Dance Team, Chamber Choir and A cappella Choir, featuring songs about love, friendship and life.
Director Holly Fougere said the show “will feature original works by students as well as popular tunes to get you in the spirit for Valentine’s Day.”
Opening the night will be a combined number by all ensembles to “Come Alive” from the “Greatest Showman.”
The show has a variety of music, including Nat King Cole’s “When I Fall in Love,” “For Good” from the musical Wicked, “Do You Love Me?” by the Contours, Aladdin’s “Friend Like ME,” Etta James' “At Last” and others.
“Audience members will love the costumes and variety of dance and music numbers the students have prepared,” said Fougere.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door.
Proceeds will benefit the ensemble's upcoming trip to Boston in April.
“While in Boston, the dancers and singers will compete at the Music in the Parks Festival, perform at Faneuil Hall, participate in a musical theater workshop with broadway professionals and partake in Boston attractions,” Fougere said.
“Funds raised from this show will help provide scholarships to those students in financial need. The students and staff look forward to performing for their community this weekend,” she said.
Kennett High School is located on Eagles Way in Conway, just across the street from Walmart.
