Members of Mississippi State’s show choir, Blitz, and dance theatre company, Terpsichore, are out to show the campus and community that “This is Halloween” when they take the stage at Lee Hall’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, “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”
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.
Blitz and Terpsichore members have been rehearsing for Friday’s show since the start of the fall semester.
