Batesville Singers shows have '80s theme

The Batesville Singers Dinner Shows are slated for Saturday-Sunday, March 1-2. The performances by the Batesville High School show choir will be held in the Batesville Middle School old gym. On Saturday doors open at 6 p.m. with dinner at 6:30. On Sunday doors open at 2 p.m. and the show will follow at 2:30.

The dinner, catered by the Big Four Cafe, has hickory smoked beef brisket, garlic and herb grilled chicken, garlic smashed potatoes, fresh green beans, salad with a variety of dressings, rolls and cookies on the menu.

“This is a high-energy show you won’t want to miss!” reports choral director Carla Thomas. The entertainment will include a number of solo performances by students including Mandy Lynch, Dale Bruns, Caleb Abshear and many more.

The Batesville Singers will also present their competition show “Back to the ‘80s.” They will harmonize on many favorites from that decade: “Footloose,” “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll,” “What a Feeling,” “I Wanna Dance with Somebody,” “True Colors,” “Let’s Hear it for the Boy,” “Material Girl” and “Thriller.”

In addition, the vocalists will present the show at South Dearborn’s Opening Knight Competition, Shelbyville’s Singing Sensational Competition and at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla.

The school’s newest choir, The Batesville Sensations, also will entertain.

Thomas points out, “Batesville is highly blessed with so many intelligent, talented students and musicians. They can sing, dance, act, play instruments, as well as perform with excellence in all their academic endeavors.”

Chelsey Thompson and Nicole Drew are the show’s choreographers. The backup band is directed by BHS band director Eric Stauffer. Travis and Nicole Drew, Amy Smith and Sarah Putnam are on the dinner show committee.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by Feb. 24 from any Singer student or by contacting BHS administrative assistant Alice Raver at 934-4384 or Nicole Drew at 812-209-8730. They will not be sold at the door.
