On Friday and Saturday, May 11 and 12 at 6:30 p.m., come prepared to be dazzled by a full-blown musical revue, “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” which showcases the talented students of the Oak Harbor High School choir program. Doors open at 6 p.m. at Oak Harbor High School.

Directed by Darren McCoy, this music spectacular is a surefire crowd pleaser that will bring a wide array of Broadway-style tunes to the stage.

Also enjoy a guest appearance by the An-O-Chords of Anacortes, who delight with their barbershop finesse.

Of particular interest, the audience will be treated to a sneak preview of the widely anticipated zombie music video, “Thrill the Island,” filmed at various locations on Whidbey Island.

During intermission, the audience will indulge in strawberry shortcake and chocolate fondue.

The students will use new equipment funded in part by Rotary, Sunrise Rotary and Soroptimist International of Oak Harbor.

Tickets are $12 and sold out fast last year. Order tickets at ritzwillcall@gmail.com by including first and last name and number of tickets desired.
