Wagon Trails Revue

Wagon Trails Revue
by Shelby Parsons
  Wagon Trails Revue is a show hosted by the yearbook staff. The first revue was started by an advisor who was unable to afford the final billing price of a yearbook. In order to raise money, he decided to have a variety show.
  The Wagon Trails Revue has been a recurring event in the fall ever since the 1960s. This year, it will be held on November 8th and 9th at 7 p.m. The theme this year is Mooresville’s Got Talent and will be going back to the old format of Wagon Trails Revue with commercials.
  “It is something that they don’t have anything like it anywhere else, and we have so many people and so many groups that come together to make it happen, it is one of our most beloved fall events,” yearbook adviser Ada Clark said.
  There will be a number of different soloist performers. Kristen Crawford will be performing Reach for Me by Krysta Rodriguez.
  “They are going to see something that has not been done before,” junior Kristen Crawford said.
  Another soloist performing in Wagon Trails Revue this year is Megan Acres. She is performing People Like Us by Kelly Clarkson.
  “It is going to be really great and we’ve been working really hard so people should come watch,” junior Megan Acres said.
  Make sure to buy tickets as soon as possible to see a great show this year. Tickets will be on sale at the Welcome Center Monday, November 4th through Thursday November 7th from 7:30 a.m. until 11:20 a.m. and noon until 2:30 p.m.
