SHOWS

HOORAY FOR HOLLYWOOD: 7:30 p.m., Feb. 14. This musical extravaganza celebrates the expected movie musicals, such as a full-costume splashfest with “Singin’ in the Rain,” but it does something different. It doesn’t just take selections from movie “musicals,” it includes songs from other movies: Jake and Elwood shaking their tail feathers from “The Blues Brothers,” for example.

A CHORUS LINE: 7:30 p.m., March 11. “A Chorus Line” opened in 1975 on Broadway with a book by James Kirkwood Jr. and Nicholas Dante, lyrics by Edward Kleban, and music by Marvin Hamlisch. Nominated for a dozen Tony Awards, the show won nine, including best musical, and it also scored a Pulitzer Prize for drama.

Where: Carolyn Harris Performing Arts Center, Cook High School, Adel.

Director: Jeremy Williams.
