The Sooke Youth Show Choir is back again with their winter show next week at the Edward Milne Community School theatre, this time taking on a popular TV show.
It’s called Stars in their Eyes and it is based on the British TV talent show of the same name, where contestants would impersonate showbiz stars.
The TV show itself ran from 1990 until 2006 on UK-based TV network ITV and was revived again in early January 2015 until being cancelled in April.
In SYSC’s version of the show, there are going to be “celebrity judges” who will critique each of the kids’ performances (no Simon Cowells, only nice judges of course) and the roles of the judges will be played by some high-profile Sooke residents.
This clip from YouTube provides a good idea of what the youth choir will try to emulate in their performance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkpYU6ptl5E.
Not all of the kids in the choir will be doing a character (there are about 16 solo/duet numbers) and there will be several group numbers the kids will all sing as a chorus.
Kids from West-Mont Montessori will also be joining SYSC in some of the group numbers that night.
The event takes place at the EMCS theatre on Wednesday night, Dec. 15 at 6 p.m. Tickets are available at the door, $10 for adults, $5 for youth 16 and under.
