Rocklin students go back in time to save music

Theater department hosts '80s revue to raise money
-A +A
Rocklin High School’s Theatre Department will go back to the 80s in an effort to save its 2012 winter musical. Rocklin High’s Theatre budget restraints may result in the Rocklin High School winter musical being cancelled, unless enough money is raised to offset the costs of the show. In an effort to prevent that, students, teachers, alumni and parents will hold an ’80s revue at 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 12 and Saturday, Aug. 13 in the Katie Taylor Memorial Theater on the high school campus. Local musicians and artists will be performing songs from the 80s. The annual winter musical is the centerpiece of the performing arts at Rocklin High School. It provides an enriching experience for students and the community. This is where all the performing arts elements come together, exposing students to drama, dance, and music. Performing Arts has many positive benefits for students: it contributes to making a well-rounded student, engages the student’s mind and energy in a positive outlet, provides a sense of worth, and provides a showcase for creative expression. Tickets, at $10 for adults and $8 for students, can be purchased at the door. Donations can also be made through the RHS Save the Musical website (savethemusical.com). ~ Staff report
