MILLSAP – As we move into a new month some of the students at our elementary school are hard at work putting the final touches on a musical that they will present to the public on April 11.
Under the direction of music teacher, Missy Dunn, the theme of the program will be a “Tribute to George Strait.”
With the idea being the brain child of Physical Education teacher, Michael Humphrey, the kids love the direction that the production has taken and grades K-2nd will be participating. Ms. Dunn has done an excellent job of developing the students’ talents, and has included Strait’s songs “Heartland,” “Yes or No,” and “Amarillo by Morning” in the show. A highlight is sure to be the kids dancing to “Ace in the Hole.”
All of this will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the Millsap Elementary Cafetorium. This will be a great night of local entertainment, free to the public so please plan to attend and support all of the hard work that the children have put into their show.
In other local talent news, our own Juan Etta Gilbert is a contestant in the 12th Annual Ms. Senior Parker County Pageant. This requires much preparation and work as there will be evening wear, talent, and interview involved. Word has it that Juan Etta’s daughter, Miss Texas 1982 Gloria Gilbert Barron, is coaching her mother for the upcoming event. Mrs. Gilbert is sponsored by the Millsap Neighborhood Ladies Home and Garden Club of which she is a faithful member.
There will be recognition of the contestant who sells the most pre-pageant tickets ($10 each).Tickets are also being sold on a hand crocheted bedspread. Tickets for the pageant and bedspread can both be purchased the evening of the contest, which is Saturday, April 13, 7 p.m., at the Alkek Center at Weatherford College.
