This year’s production will be “A Red Carpet Affair,” featuring award-winning songs from radio, stage and the big screen. These skits were created by the students and director Beth Hellstedt.

Some of the scenes feature songs from the movies “Dirty Dancing” and “Les Miserables” and television show “Glee.” The students even worked with a choreographer from Broadway.

This variety-style show will have two more performances: Friday, May 10 and Saturday, May 11. Shows begin at 7 p.m. each night in the auditorium at Maple Grove Senior High School.

The cost to attend is $10 for adults and $8 for students, seniors and children. All the money raised will go back to the MGSH Theatre Boosters Board for the use of equipment and help other students participate in future productions of the MGSH Theatre Department.
