Let it snow, let it snow! Rain, shine or snowing on Saturday, November 26, better hope you are in town. Somerville’s got talent! Don’t miss the entertainment event of the season. Walk or ride yourself over to the Somerville Theatre: The faculty, students and alumni of the Somerville Public Schools music department present a Tom Taylor production, Holiday in the Ville, from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. The Somerville Theatre will rock and glow with the sounds of the city and season provided by the go-flo casuals, Grooversity, the Somerville Second Line Social Aid Pleasure Society Brass Band, to name just three of the original student and alumni based acts. Alumni of the SHS band, orchestra and chorus will join the present student members of their respective ensembles in performance, and there will be many exciting surprises. Jimmy Del Ponte will be master of ceremonies. General admission is $10, seniors and children are $5. Tickets are available in advance at the Somerville Theatre box office, or contact Rick Saunders at the high school. Remaining tickets will be sold at the door.

The proceeds will go to Somerville Public Schools’ music program, to support the expansion of its instructional and extracurricular offerings as well as to continue its practice of providing music lessons regardless of students’ ability to rent instruments.
