Preparations are underway for MADCAPS’ annual charity show.  150 girls from the Mission Hills and Point Loma areas, ranging from grades seven through twelve, will sing and dance their way into everyone’s hearts all to raise money for various philanthropies; once again proving that a small group of motivated and committed young girls working together can make a difference.

The theme for the 2012 show, “On the Radio,” will feature a different genre of music.  Each class will highlight a particular artist. According to Show Chair Maria Gibson, “On the Radio” was chosen as this year’s show theme during a brainstorming session. They decided on this particular theme because music is such an important part of everyone’s life (especially the junior members, the teen’s). Songs often trigger happy memories or help during difficult times, helping to raise spirits. The right song can often change your mood:

12th grade: Oldies Station – Featured artist is the Beatles.

11th grade: Big Band/Lounge Style – Featured artist is the Rat Pack.

10th grade: Pop – Featured artist is Michael Jackson.

9th grade: R&B – Featured artist is Donna Summer.

8th grade: Rock and Roll – Featured artist is Elvis.

7th grade: Country – Featured artist is Taylor Swift.
