The public will have the opportunity Monday night to see Chase County Schools faculty and staff step out of their comfort zones during the Imperial Education Association’s (IEA) FACULTY FOLLIES FUNdraiser.
Skits, lip sync selections, a drum line with trash cans and songs rewritten for the show will highlight the event, scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday in the school auditorium.
Tickets are $5 for adults and $2 for children at the door.
Coordinator Jill Bauerle said at least one lip sync will spotlight the Blues Brothers, or Al Zuege and Bruce Vires.
“All other songs will be sung because they have been rewritten for our show,” she said. “We have piano, guitar and karaoke accompaniments” to songs such as “Favorite Things,” “Better Watch Out,” “Killing Me Softly” and “Let It Go.”
In addition a slide show to “It’s a Wonderful World” features pictures of CCS students.
A classroom skit addresses life in the classroom plus the issue of homework, Bauerle said.
In between acts raffles will be held for Young American tickets for a show to be held at CCS next year and possibly sports passes.
“I really believe the audience will be thoroughly entertained,” Bauerle stated, “either by our brilliance or by our total willingness to put ourselves out there.”
The scholarship amount, for two CCS graduates, changes year to year depending upon the amount of money the IEA raises during the year. Scholarships range from $400-500.
