Graves Schools' PAC Season Events Series

The Graves County Schools’ Performing Arts Center again offers its Season Events Series of performances for one low price during the 2012-13 school year. The PAC is located adjacent to Graves County High School.
Saturday, November 3 – "Grease is the Word!" – … at Graves County High School this fall. “Grease,” written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, is the quintessential, All-American musical, based on the culture of cool of high school life in the late 1950's. The story takes place at Rydell High School where Danny Zuko and his gang, the T-Birds, romance their sassy female counterparts, the Pink Ladies. Things really begin to change when Sandy Dumbrowski arrives in town and the Pink Ladies take her under their wing. These cats and kittens might think they’re “too cool for school,” but they wouldn’t miss these glory days for the world. Grease is the word!
Saturday, December 15 – “Candy Cane Classics” – Sleigh bells ring, are you listenin’? By Dec. 15, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and this holiday concert is the perfect way to get that holiday feeling during the most wonderful time of the year! Graves County High School’s Orchestra, Jazz Band, Choirs, and even the Drama Department can’t help but to sing a seasonal song! This Graves County Schools’ district-wide concert features Christmas classics. It’s a collaborative production joining the Fine Arts Academy programs together to present songs and skits that will recall Christmases of long, long ago. Enjoy Christmas cookies and punch during intermission in the art gallery, where Graves County Middle School students’ art will be on display. Since the Holiday Season is a time of surprises, there’s always that possibility of a chance visit from that jolly old elf himself – Santa Claus!
Saturday, January 26 – “Graves County’s Got Talent” – “America’s Got Talent” in recent years has proven to be a hit television show. Not to be outdone, it’s very clear as well that “Graves County’s Got Talent!” This cold winter’s evening will be warmed by the good spirits and hot talent of all ten Graves County schools – eight elementaries, the middle and high schools! By this point, each school will have held its own talent show and this production will present the best of the best! The top acts of each school will be on display, it’ll be lots of fun, and some day audience members might well have the opportunity to say of a big star – “You know, way back when, I saw their act … when they performed on-stage at the PAC!”
Saturday, February 23 – “Starry, Starry Night” – The final performance of the cold weather season provides one last chance to settle in for a winter’s night of entertainment! The Graves County High School orchestra and choirs will join together to make magnificent music! Performers and audience members alike are highly encouraged to come out for the show dressed in their coziest pajamas! It’s one last chance during the winter to turn off the technology, let cares melt away, and snuggle into those comfortable seats to just … listen … Ah, so nice! Featured performances will include both the men's and women's a cappella groups, the Graves County Chamber Orchestra, and a string quartet, among many others.
Saturday, April 27 – “Curtain Call: All the World’s a Stage…” – The long-running and highly-popular annual collaboration of all of Graves County High School’s performing arts groups appropriately concludes the Season Event Series: It’s Curtain Call! “All The World’s A Stage…,” Shakespeare wrote and through the pen of the creative LaVerne Waldrop, that theme undoubtedly will lead to endless possibilities! There’s no doubt Curtain Call will be entertaining! There’s also absolutely no telling what these creative minds and talented students will produce! There’s bit of everything from the amazing musicians and vocalists of the bands, choirs, orchestras, and ensembles to the remarkable actors, dancers, storytellers, and other performers of dance, drama, forensics, and GCTV! “All the World’s A Stage…” It’s no wonder these performers each year are applauded again and again to make one more … Curtain Call!
