Local performances and Easter Egg Hunts this weekend

A performance this weekend paying tribute to musicians from the past nearly 80 years is April 19th and 20th. It’s Sugar High Theatricals presentation of: “Gone Too Soon: A Tribute to Musicians We Loved and Lost”. Music from some of the most beloved performers who died too soon will be featured. The show includes music from over 30 artists like Elvis, The Carpenters, Patsy Cline, TLC, Janis Joplin, Freddie Mercury, and Buddy Holly just to name a few. Director Melanie Delbridge-Heskett said, “This is the most eclectic show we have ever attempted. This show crosses the entire spectrum of music, from country, to rock to pop to a little Broadway and spans a number of generations highlighting music from the 1940s to today.” Gone Too Soon will be presented at the Northgate Family Recreation Center Clubroom tonight and tomorrow at 7:30 pm. Seating is limited. Tickets are $15 for adults or $5 for students and children and will be available at the door. For reservations, email sugarhightheatricals@gmail.com or call 532-7840.
