The Polar Express Holiday Show

Tools

By Craig Thornton

The holiday tradition of a huge, family oriented outreach production presented by Rhonda's FooteWorks continues in the North Country- but with a "little twist".

Instead of bringing back "A Holiday Surprise", Director Rhonda Foote has decided to bring the classic "Polar Express" to life on a local stage.  And, the biggest addition?  Another local group whose performances serve their community:  Stage Notes.

The Stage Notes singers will perform the beloved songs from The Polar Express live as Rhonda's FooteWorks dancers take the stage.  Even the youngest of each group is featured, as Stage Notes Jr. will be featured in "Frosty The Snowman", danced by the studio's Mini Star Company (age 5-8).

A pre-show performance by the studios Tots and PreSchool students will also be sung by Stage Notes Jr, reminding us all that "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town".  Rumor has it that The Man In Red will make an appearance after each show. 

The shows will be presented on Saturday, November 30th at the Immaculate Heart High School in the auditorium.  Shows are at 2:00 and 7:00 pm.  The 2:00 p.m. show will be a deaf friendly event, as interpreted by Aldebaran Interpreting Services.  General admission is $6.00 and the event is a Yellow Ribbon event; show military identification and admission is $5.00.  Suggested attire for this event is holiday pajamas! 

Profits from ticket sales will go directly to Daimon and Seeley Tuttle.  The three- year old and eight month old sons of John and Tiffany Tuttle, Gouverneur, both suffer from a rare disorder, Persistent Fetal Vascular Syndrome.  This disease has left them both legally blind, and Seeley also faces several other medical challenges.  The family travels all over the country seeking the best medical care for their young sons.  Funds raised at the door and via the large silent auction in the lobby will assist with these costs. 

For advance sale tickets, or to donate to the auction, email rfwdance@gmail.com.  For further information, visit www.rhondasfooteworks.com
