Prince Albert Collegiate Institute (PACI) will host their Winter Showcase on Dec. 5.

The annual event is open to the public and will showcase performing art students from the school.

Grade 10 drama students will perform Boxes by Kendra Thomas as the first act. Boxes is a play regarding the expectations that people face in their lives, especially students, and how they are stored within.

The second act will focus on the school’s dance and music programs, with spoken word poetry as a new addition this year.

Ryan Hughes, a teacher at PACI, said the showcase has been held for several years and is a night designed to inspire confidence and passion in the students.

“The students have been working really hard for close to two and a half months on this,” said Hughes. “The importance of the night is to showcase our student’s passions … it’s to build confidence in our kids and get them ready for those performance tasks like public speaking. This gives them an opportunity to showcase themselves and shine.”

Roughly 50 students will participate throughout the evening with tasks ranging from poetry to music and dance.

There is no admission fee to the showcase, and food and beverages will be available. Donations will be accepted to help support the development of a green room and other various performing arts initiatives. Doors to the show open at 7 p.m.
