POINT PLEASANT — The show must, and will, go on.
Originally set for the first weekend in March, the 48th annual Black Knight Revue (BKR) was rescheduled for this coming weekend. As a result of the nine-day work stoppage for Mason County schools, the BKR was set back two weeks but it was not set back indefinitely.
The show this year is titled, “24K Music,” presented by the Point Pleasant High School (PPHS) Band.
The show will run this Friday, March 16 at 7 p.m., Saturday, March 17 at 7 p.m., and Sunday, March 18 at 3 p.m. at the Lillian and Paul Wedge Auditorium at PPHS. Tickets cost $7 for adults and $5 for students. BKR pre-sale tickets are available at People’s Bank, Ohio Valley Bank, City National Bank, and Fruth’s Pharmacy in Point Pleasant, pre-sale tickets are $5 for both adults and students.
The revue will cover several genres of music including current hits such as “Believer,” “Chained to the Rhythm,” “Some Nights,” featuring the award winning PPHS drumline, and “Me Too,” featuring the award winning PPHS color guard. The show will also have a disco section and a country section, along with Disney’s Moana and “Save the Last Dance for Me,” by Michael Buble.
According to PPHS Band Director Ben Loudin, this is the 25th Revue he has been involved in and he stated it takes a lot to impress him, but the talent every year gets better and better.
The audience should expect the usual use of high-tech lights and sound as well as a live band. The band is comprised of 95 students who will end the show with, “All I Do is Win,” to celebrate another successful grand champion year. Assisting Loudin with this year’s show are his wife Jessica Loudin, PPHS Assistant Band Director Chip Hendricks, and PPHS Choir Director Crystal Hendricks, as well as several parent and community volunteers.
