Musical Gala March 17
The Ballard High School Theater Group is preparing for their biggest production of the year - the Winter Musical presentation of Damn Yankees. Eighty Ballard High School performing arts students, under the direction of BHS Theater Director Shawn Riley, are involved in the production, including 40 student actors and a 25-student live pit orchestra. New to this year’s musical will be a walk on role by the winning bidder at the annual Ballard Performing Arts auction!
Damn Yankees is a musical comedy based on the novel The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant. Set in the 1950, it presents a modern retelling of the Faust legend. Featuring the hit songs “Heart” and “Whatever Lola Wants”, this musical will surely entertain the whole “damn” family!
The Theater group will also host a Musical Gala fundraiser for Ballard Performing Arts on March 17th at 5:00 pm at Ballard High School. Guests will enjoy a pre-dinner mixer with the cast, a catered sit down meal, and reserved seats to the performance. Diamond Club Level participants will also receive a Washington Senator's baseball cap!
The performances will be on March 15, 16, 17 & March 22, 23, 24 at 7:30 PM at the Earl Kelly Center for Performing Arts at Ballard High School. The Musical Gala is March 17th at 5 PM.
