HARKER HEIGHTS — More than 600 students auditioned for a spot in the two-day Knight Club show, which premieres today, but only about 60 students made the cut.
Knight Club performers hit the stage with a dress rehearsal Thursday night to work out any last-minute kinks and to run their performances one last time.
The musical show, which has 38 acts, will feature live bands from across the state as well as a professional light show.
Tommy Haygood, the high school’s choir director, said the show not only gives students an opportunity to sing and dance in a professional setting, but also lets them pick the country, pop, R&B and rock tunes they want to perform.
“There’s lighting and foggers and hazers. You really feel like you’re at a real rock concert,” he said. “We actually have kids who have come out of this experience and are pursuing a singing career.”
