Arts and singing a focus at St. Augustine show

This year’s production at St. Augustine Catholic School promises something a little different than the norm.

This year’s production at St. Augustine Catholic School promises something a little different than the norm.

Guided by educational assistant and director Nicole Josephison, an arts showcase has been prepared, mostly by students who will be singing show tunes and presenting their artwork to attendees. What’s different is the songs are sung as capella, without any musical accompaniment.

Students have been working long hours to hone their tunes and voices for the musical numbers.

The showcase will also be presented as theatre in the round, which features chairs for attendees in a circular fashion with singers in the middle. Josephison struggled to contain her excitement with the production, which also features projected images on the walls of the school’s gym, where the showcase will be held.

“All our backdrops were designed in Photoshop by our students,” said Josephison.

During the intermission, attendees will be able to see hundreds of pieces of artwork created by the students. The entire show is a collaborative effort with Josephison, teachers and more than 50 students. The costumes were designed by student Kiara Johnson.

“She drew out a pattern. She consulted with me and we came up with a plan that was easy,” said Josephison.

The costumes are designed for quick changes between numbers.

What Josephison enjoyed the most was seeing students grow in their vocal abilities and confidence.

The arts and music showcase will be held for two days only: Friday, May 13 at 7 p.m and May 14 for 2 p.m. matinee. Advance tickets are $5 and tickets at the door are $7.

“There is something for everybody and you will not be disappointed,” she concluded.
