The Tyler Junior College Apache Belles are celebrating the silver screen with this year’s spring show theme, “Let’s Go to the Movies.”
Dance numbers and skits will feature various movies, actors and artists ranging from the Hollywood’s Golden Age to today.
Performances are 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, March 28-30, with a 2 p.m. Saturday matinee, in Wise Auditorium, on the TJC main campus.
Admission is $10 for the Thursday night and Saturday matinee performances and $15 for the Friday and Saturday night shows. All seats are general admission, and doors open 30 minutes prior to showtime.
Tickets can be purchased at tjc.edu/belles or at the Wise Auditorium box office one hour before showtime. (Payment at the box office is by cash or check only).
“This will be our 34th spring show,” Apache Belles Director Jasilyn Schaefer said, “and each year has been an original production with a unique theme.”
Schaefer said spring show is also a time to feature the diverse talents of the Apache Belles as all forms of dancing are on display, including hip hop, jazz, prop, tap and clogging.
“It’s also a bittersweet time for our sophomores, since spring show marks their last performance as Apache Belles,” Schaefer said. “It’s a time for them to say goodbye to the two years that they’ve spent with the team and for us to wish them well in the next phase of their lives.”
