The Ram Review Cabaret

NEW! - The Ram Review Cabaret!
Posted on 11/21/2016
The SHHS Music Department is changing things up this year! The Choir, Women’s Chorus, Chorale and Jazz Band are collaborating on a new Cabaret-style event incorporating music, games, skits and desserts!  The shows will take place on Friday, Dec. 9 and Saturday, Dec. 10 at 7:00 PM in the Baseline Middle School Cafetorium.  

The department’s winter performance has traditionally been a Madrigal Dinner.  This year, Katie Hillyard, the SHHS Vocal Music Director, wanted to do something a little different.  

“We were looking to infuse some new energy,” said Katie Hillyard, SHHS Vocal Music Director.  “Madrigal is such a wonderful tradition but we wanted to sort of try something a little new.  From an educational standpoint, it allows students the opportunity to be exposed to a wider variety of music.”  Hillyard also stresses that the Madrigal Dinner is not lost – the dinner and the cabaret will alternate years.

This first Cabaret will be in the style of a late night talk show, featuring a local “celebrity” host, games with opportunities for audience participation, guest interviews and SHHS’s very own Carpool Karaoke.  The evening will include gourmet desserts, hot chocolate and a festive mood. Guests are encouraged to wear their best ugly Christmas sweater to join in on the fun.  According to Hillyard, students are already having a great time. 

“The kids are really enjoying it and connecting with it,” she said.  “The atmosphere in my room is really pumped up!”

Tickets for the event are $15 per person and can be purchased through the High School Office, from Jazz Band and Choir students or by contacting Katie Hillyard at khillyard@shps.org or 269-637-0502 x 1082.
