Bayside school students stage ‘60s musical

Grade 8 students at Bayside Middle School are gearing up for their ‘60s musical Hippie Flower Power tonight.

CENTRAL SAANICH — Grade 8 students at Bayside Middle School are gearing up for their ‘60s musical Hippie Flower Power tonight (March 10).

The students of Valley Dale High School want to stage a battle of the bands between the girls and boys.  When their request is denied, they try to get a permit at the city park.  When they are shut down again, Ole MacDonald’s farm comes to their rescue. Throngs of people begin to arrive, including The Boss’ Bikers who try to destroy everything. When The Kooks, a top British rock group, and The Boss arrive on the scene, everything goes wild.

These students are part of the Grade 8 FAAS course, Let’s Put on a Show!, and have been working since January on acting, singing and dancing. Some of the students have also been involved in the set building.

The show isat 7 p.m. in Bayside’s multi-purpose room. Tickets went on sale Monday, March 7 and can be purchased at the school office.
