Sounds of New Generation

Children's Theatre of Elgin and Fox Valley Theatre Company proudly present iSing:  Songs of a New Generation
    June 21-23
    June 28-30

More than 125 students will sing and dance in the musical variety show featuring dozens of current pop songs.

CTE/FVTC's annual combined summer show gets an update this year as children of some of the original board of directors step into directing roles themselves.
Allison Cherry, a 28-year-old teacher at Prairie View Grade School in Burlington who began performing with CTE as a second grader in 1992, directs the show, while her brother Christopher Cherry, a 31-year-old teacher at Hampshire High School is music director.
Their father Greg Cherry, who has been a CTE/FVTC board member for 23 years, is producing the show.

Last summer, CTE/FVTC celebrated its silver anniversary with a showcase called Simply the Best, which featured favorite songs of the group's founders and audiences from the past 25 years. This year all of the songs were written after 2000, and the title iSing is a play on Apple's iPod to represent a new generation of music.

"We're entering a new era of directors, choreographers, vocal coaches and cast members,†Ms. Cherry said. "What better way to kick off a new beginning than with a show of current hits?"

iSing performances will be at 7:30 p.m. on June 21, 22, 28 and 29 and at 3 p.m. on June 23 and 30.

Tickets are available at the ECC box office, 1700 Spartan Drive Building H, Room H143, Elgin, IL,
