Leader of the Pack

       PHS’s Pearland Theatre presents “Leader of the Pack”, a hit Broadway musical retrospective that celebrates the life and times of Ellie Greenwich, whose doo-wop sounds skyrocketed to the top of the 60s charts. The story of Ellie’s rise to fame and fortune is punctuated with several of her biggest hits: “Chapel of Love,” “Da Doo Ron Ron,” “Be My Baby,” “Hanky Panky,” Do Wah Diddy Diddy,” “And Then He Kissed Me,” and, of course, the title song, “Leader of the Pack.”

       The musical “Leader of the Pack” can be seen in the PHS auditorium (3775 South Main) on Jan. 13-15 and 20-22 at 7 p.m.

       General admission tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for students, senior citizens and staff, and $12 for premium seating. All tickets must be purchased online at www.pearlandisd.org/onlinetickets

The Sound of Music

       A vibrant version of the musical “The Sound of Music” by Rodgers and Hammerstein will soon take place at Dawson High School. 

       The show tells the story a young exuberant nun named Maria who lives in Austria in 1938 and is sent from the Nonnberg Abbey, a monastery, to become a young governess for a broken family. As she brings music and joy back to the children and their father, a retired naval officer, Maria faces an unanticipated obstacle: falling in love and deciding whether or not to pursue becoming a nun. Many songs from the musical have become very popular, such as "Edelweiss," "My Favorite Things," "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "Do-Re-Mi," and the title song "The Sound of Music."

       The musical “The Sound of Music” can be seen in the DHS auditorium (2050 Cullen Blvd.) on Jan. 20-22 and 27-29 at 7 p.m.

       General admission tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for students, senior citizens and staff, and $12 for premium seating. All tickets must be purchased online at www.pearlandisd.org/onlinetickets.
