On Thursday, December 17, Lakeside Middle and Lakeside Farms Elementary Schools entertained family, friends, and shoppers at the Santee Trolley Square with selections of holiday music. Reflecting the commitment to the arts in these schools, the kids in these two groups put on a great show of standard and offbeat songs of the season. These ranged from the younger Chorus’ recitation of “The Night Before Christmas” to the older Choir’s performance of of “Let’s Hear It for Mrs. Claus.” Unfortunately for anyone who missed today, these were the last performances of the season for these two talented groups of kids. But expect to hear more from both in the future.

Thursday afternoon, December 17, the Lakeside Middle School Show Choir will perform at the Trolley Square amphitheater, starting at 4:00 pm. Now, I admit that I am a bit partial, since my daughter and several of her friends are in the group, but this Choir is one of the best I’ve heard. If you haven’t gotten into the holiday spirit yet, these kids are sure to put you over the top. They will be joined by the Lakeside Farms Elementary School Choir – another great-sounding group of kids. Come out, have some fun, and support the Arts in East County.
No, this is not a commentary on the community of Lakeside. PLAY (Performing Lakeside Acting Youth), a program that provides a theatrical experience for Lakeside area kids from grades 4 through 12, is presenting the musical “Beauty and the Beast.” The program is sponsored by the Lakeside Union School District and is based at Lakeside Middle School. Kids handle everything from the acting to lights, sound, and sets. It has become so popular that this year over 100 young people are performing in three casts.
The show runs this weekend, with performances tonight (Friday, 3/20) at 6:00 pm, Saturday (3/21) at 2:00 pm and 6:00 pm, and Sunday (3/22) at 2:00 pm – then again next weekend at the same times, plus a 6:00 pm performance on Thursday (3/26). All shows are at Lakeside Middle School, located at 11833 Woodside Ave., just off the 67 (exit Riverford Rd. and go north on Woodside Ave.) and tickets are just $4 – such a deal for some great family entertainment.
To help keep this program running, there will be snacks, raffles, and a silent auction of a “reborn baby doll” valued at $500. So why not head over to Lakeside and “be their guest” for a great time.
This Reborn Baby Doll will be auctioned off over the run of the program
