Hughesville Locals Mar. 9, 2016

By Staff | Mar 9, 2016

I believe in magic! While I understand that it is physically impossible for things to transform from one type of matter to another, and that it is only hard work and long range planning that make dreams come true, I challenge you to deny the magic that will be apparent on the stage of the HHS auditorium this week! Students have been working long hours learning their roles and musical numbers, parents, teachers, and directors have been guiding the painting, building, and sewing projects, and the technology crew is ready to make sure that this year’s production will be one of Hughesville’s best.

And so, I have been seeing that magic that happens when talented young people combine their talents and sing and dance their way into your heart! Due to contract restrictions, I am not allowed to publish the title of the show, but you may see it on the large marquee sign outside HHS. (Print advertising is allowed on school district property). There are also some rehearsal photos showing up on Facebook, so you may want to check that source. This is one of those shows that has potential to be a sell out, so be sure to get there early if you haven’t reserved seats in advance!

Don’t forget that Daylight Savings Time begins this Sunday! We “spring ahead,” so we will lose an hour, but I’m sure we will all enjoy the fact that sunset will be later in the evening. The warmer temperatures will help us get all that warm weather gear out of storage and ready for the next sunny day!
