Members of Mississippi Stateâ€™s show choir, Blitz, and dance theatre company, Terpsichore, are out to show the campus and community that â€śThis is Halloweenâ€ť when they take the stage at Lee Hallâ€™s Bettersworth Auditorium Friday night.
The two performance groups have joined forces to stage their first-ever Halloween showcase, taking its name from a song from the popular animated film, â€śThe Nightmare Before Christmas.â€ť
The show will be staged at 7:30 p.m. in the Bettersworth Auditorium in Lee Hall. Admission is $5 for adults and $2 for children under 12.
