From dancing to singing to a bit of comedy throw in, dozens of Beaver Dam High School students are on a mission to entertain. But this mission goes well beyond showing the audience a good time, these students are hitting the stage this weekend to help save programs they love, hoping to keep them around for years to come.
"We just really want a way to keep it going for generations and other music students to come have the same opportunities we did” says Georgia Roth, director of the FOG (For Our Generation) Program musical revue show.
Beaver Dam High School students started the FOG Program 11 years ago. Every August since they've put on a musical revenue show. It's completely performed, choreographed, produced, and directed by students.
The purpose of the show is to raise money to keep the school's music programs alive. The students will put on three shows this weekend at the high school: Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm, and Sunday at 2pm. Admission is $7 at the door. All proceeds benefit Beaver Dam High School's Music/Drama Department.
"I think it's a really good way to show that we really support what we do here” says Roth.
It's a purpose these students will surely hold dear to their hearts long after they graduate.
"I think just as long as we keep going at it every year, we can keep Beaver Dam's music programs thriving” says Jacob Gardner, a student at Beaver Dam High School and producer of the FOG Program show.
