Columbia County teachers and pupils will provide the community with plenty of entertainment this week.
The Harlem High School faculty will kick off the week's performances with Faculty Follies at 7 p.m. Monday.
"We have The Temptations. We have musical divas. We have dances. We have fire batons," said Harlem High drama teacher Roy Lewis. "It's going to be awesome."
Admission costs $10, and proceeds will go to the Harlem Drama Boosters scholarship fund. Each year, the drama boosters award $2,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors who plan to pursue degrees in theater.
"Everybody's bringing out their talents from when they were in high school," Lewis said. "It's the first time that we've done this. We always do a talent show for the kids."
Middle school pupils will showcase their talents with the Middle School Honors Chorus Concert at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Grace Baptist Church.
There is no charge for the performance, which will feature about 15 pupils from each of the county's seven middle schools.
Mike Lindsey, the director of middle school and gifted learning, said the concert will give the pupils an opportunity to experience the music and to perform in front of people.
"We want them to learn that there are intrinsic values and rewards out of working hard," Lindsey said.
Brookwood Elementary School fifth-graders will perform at the school's Cinderella Fantasy Dessert Theater on Tuesday. Brookwood music teacher said this performance is sold out.
The musical features a cast of 35 fifth-graders, who will sing, dance and act out the Walt Disney fairy tale.
Other fifth-graders will act as waiters and waitresses at an ice cream sundae bar after the show.
The costumed characters from the show will mingle with audience members.
Carr said this is the first year the school has tried a dessert theater.
