The theater department has partnered with the KDF competition teams to host “The Grinch That Stole Dancemas” Saturday at 7 pm. Tickets are $15 and include a spaghetti dinner before the show in the cafeteria from 5 to 6:30 pm.

“I was looking for a way for us to raise a little bit of money for our department as well as spotlight one of the community programs that I think is representational of really good fine arts,” theater director Kari McKenzie said. “I decided to try to collaborate with KDF studios and create something that we could do at Christmas.”

Tickets can be bought presale from the high school and at KDF. Tickets purchased at the door for $10 do not include the spaghetti dinner. The event is a fundraiser to help raise funds for the theater department and KDF.

“As a theater department, we love bringing joy to our community with as many shows as we possibly can, and the Grinch is a great way for us to spread some Christmas cheer,” Senior Ashlynn Blankenship said. “It’s especially fun because we get to collaborate with the KDF dance company to make this show happen.”

Along with a spaghetti dinner, local venders will be located in the Performing Arts Center before and after the show. After the performance, there will also be a photo op with the Grinch and other Whoville characters in the lobby.

“The Grinch has always been a childhood favorite of mine, and when Mrs. Mckenzie asked if I could play the Grinch, I was so ecstatic,” Senior Sarah Sundholm said. “I am looking forward to being part of this comedic show, and I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”

The program features seven different dances with scenes acted by the theater department. The script was written and directed by McKenzie.

“I tried to write scenes that would culminate into a moment where the dance could just be a part of the scene,” McKenzie said. “The dances actually become part of the scene to help further the story.”
