BULLHEAD CITY — The final four concert and play performances of the semester for Mohave and River Valley high schools run today and Friday.
Mohave’s band performance is tonight, Mohave’s choir concert is Friday night, and River Valley’s comedy play is both nights, in their respective auditoriums.
Both Mohave concerts begin at 7 p.m. The River Valley play performance, “Crumpled Classics,” starts at 6 p.m.
Mohave High’s Thunder Band, under the direction of Michelle Ribelin, will include “Bells of Fire,” an arrangement of the “Carol of the Bells,” “Greensleeves,” and other holiday instrumental music.
The second night of music at Mohave, “When Christmas Comes to Town,” will feature the choir performing holiday classics plus music from Christmas movies through the decades. Under the direction of Cameron Pruett, the choir also pays special tribute to the 200th anniversary of the German carol “Silent Night.” The choir concert will have a dessert fundraiser reception afterward and an art silent auction beforehand.
River Valley’s play, “Crumpled Classics,” turns popular literature and drama on its head with spoofs and modern interpretations. It is, as one critic described a different production, the live equivalent of the old Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoon’s “Fractured Fairy Tales.”
Proceeds benefit the River Valley drama program.
Tickets for all performances are available at the auditorium box offices on each campus. Prices are $5 for adults and $3 for students with ID for the band concert and play, and $7 for adults and $5 for students for the dessert concert.
