Spring Show hits stage this week


Tallassee High School is hosting its annual Spring Show on Tuesday, March 5 and Thursday, March 7 in the new Tallassee Performing Arts Center. 

The THS Choral Program is under the direction of Mrs. Kelley Hill.  She is assisted by music teacher Mr. Michael Bird. 

Mr. Bird explained the earlier date as necessity being the mother of invention. 

“When we moved into the new building this year, we weren’t sure if we could do the musical in the fall as we had done in the past, because we didn’t know if the auditorium would be ready in enough time,” Mr. Bird said. “So we purchased the rights to do ‘Grease’ in May 2024 as our first stage production - but that bumped the Spring Show out of its traditional place during the last full week of school. We decided to put the Spring Show in a new spot on the calendar, before Spring Break.” 

While the date may be different, Bird promises that the audience experience will be better than ever.

“For the past three years, our Spring Show has been in the Old Gym during the period we had no school building,” Mr. Bird said. “Jordan Cunningham has made sure that the lighting effects and sound system available to us in the new venue will be second to none and will give the audience a truly professional night of entertainment.”

This Spring Show will feature all three show choirs: the Divas are doing a show about money; Voltage is performing a funk show; and Gold Edition’s program is a spy theme.  The award-winning FFA Quartet will also be performing, as well as seniors in featured solos and of course all of the men’s and women’s choir classes.

Tickets are available on GoFan and also at the door. Patrons will need to enter through the auditorium doors by the steps facing Barnett Boulevard, as other entrances will be closed. 

“Mrs. Hill has done a great job getting all of the ensembles ready, and I am thrilled for the community to hear our students perform the first Spring Show in the new auditorium,” Mr. Bird said.
