Curtains will open at 7 p.m. tonight and Friday for the St. Leo Catholic School students' performance of â€śTouch of An Angelâ€ť in the brand new Social Hall.
Third-grade teacher and director Joey Kepple said the students are getting very excited for the big night and have been working hard.
â€śThey pulled it together better [Wednesday] than I expected them to,â€ť Kepple said. â€śThey are right on target every year. I always fret and think this is going to be the year that this is going to flop, but I think not now.â€ť
Kepple said the show's central focus is about the birth of Christ and is based on the belief that angels have been present with us as far back as the Old Testament and continue on into our lives today.
â€śWe will have different angels featured throughout the show,â€ť Kepple said. â€śDifferent angels will portray biblical angels that have appeared and touched the lives of people.â€ť
Kepple had added a couple new scenes to this year's production including a â€śsilhouette sceneâ€ť and a â€śblack light sceneâ€ť to help demonstrate the presence of angels.
Modern songs will also be incorporated like ABBA's â€śI Believe In Angelsâ€ť and another contemporary song entitled â€śCalling All Angels.â€ť
On Friday night and possibly Thursday, a five-year-old guest soloist will perform in Latin â€śPanis Angelicusâ€ť which translates to â€śBread of Angels.â€ť
