Have you got plans tonight, Friday or Saturday night? If the answer is no to any of the three nights, you need to head down and see Tigers’ Roar at Albert Lea High School.

It is ALHS’s version of a talent show. The theme is reality television, so all of the acts are introduced by a different reenactment of a reality show. From “Jersey Shore” to “My Strange Addiction,” you’ll see it all.

This year, there are seven masters of ceremony, in contrast to prior years where there are only about three. They take turns playing out the skits that introduce the acts. I promise you they will make you laugh.

The acts this year include a wide variety of musical acts. Show choir, a drum ensemble and a band include the larger acts. There are also smaller group ensembles and soloist who perform. I am playing in a string quartet, which I never thought I would have the nerve to do in front of an audience.

I have never been involved in a school production until this year’s Tigers’ Roar. Along with the string quartet I am in, I also run the curtain and coordinate microphones backstage.

Each show is at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium. Tickets are $5 for students and $7 for adults. There will also be refreshments available for purchase during intermission. If you come, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
