Severna Park High putting on Rock 'N Roll Revival


February 17, 1994|By JONI GUHNE

Tickets are now on sale for the fifth annual Severna Park High School Rock 'N Roll Revival at 8 p.m. March 11, 12, 18 and 19. There's also a 3 p.m. Sunday matinee on March 13.

Sam Scalzi, a guidance counselor, says that the cast of about 120 plus faculty, parent helpers, and set and lighting people makes this one of the year's best high school productions.

Scalzi co-directs with producer (and drama and English teacher) Tom McKown. Musical director is Steve Gilmar from Anne Arundel Community College.

Lovers of '50s and '60s music will recall past performances by senior Ron Green who, along with Carmen Haszard, is returning for his fourth year. And who can forget the show-stopping appearances of football coach Andy Borland or computer specialist Bill Rogers? Or math teacher Kris Nichols? Or the Supremes, who looked suspiciously like several female faculty members?

Costumes are being whipped together by students and parents. Choreography is by SPHS graduates Colette Miller and Julia Weber. Graduates Scott and Kris Erlandson McCullough are designing and building the sets; Gary Tawes is heading the technical stage and lighting crews.

"A show like this is very expensive to produce," says Scalzi. "With sets costing nearly $5,000, and lighting as much as $8,000, the total cost could reach $19,000."

A full house at each performance will help. Tickets are $7 and are available during school hours and in the evening at the school.

Information: 544-0900.


The Chesapeake Youth Symphony presents a Kinder Concert at 11 a.m. Feb. 26 in Key Auditorium at St. John's College.

Tickets, at $4 each, are available by calling 647-8474.
