BELLEFONTE - The ninth annual Bellefonte Area High School Variety Show will be presented Thursday and Friday, April 26 and 27 in the school theatre. The two-act show begins at 6 p.m.
Tickets are $5 with all proceeds benefitting the school's Renaissance Program which promotes positive behavior and high morale among students and faculty.
Students and staff get to show off their talents in the variety show. Acts vary greatly and include juggling, dancing, playing the piano, using sign language, a brass jazz combo, live rock bands, and poetry recitals.
Dancers Kayla Tubbs, an alumna, and Rayne Van Buren, who was a junior at Bellefonte when she participated in this act practice their routine.
The show is run and organized by volunteer students and staff and is an annual spring event that everyone in the community looks forward to attending, including alumni.
"This year we have some unique acts that we haven't seen before as well some regulars coming back to show off their skills," said BAHS Renaissance Committee member and English teacher Jennifer Walter, who is heading up the show planning. "We also have teachers pitching in their talents this year which we haven't seen for a few years. It's going to be an exciting show!"
Renaissance also offers a silent auction that will take place during the show and will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Centre County. Many items have been donated by teachers, businesses, and school clubs and athletic organziations. Ready to go to the highest bidder will be gift baskets, local sporting event tickets, gift cards to local stores and restaurants, jewelry, and BASD athletic apparel.
