Odessa High School’s Broncho Legacy will hit the stage with its spring show, “The Greatest Show,” at 7:30 p.m. May 10 at the OHS Performing Arts Center.

Head Choir Director Ginger Storey said the group includes 16 vocalists. The show’s theme comes from the movie “The Greatest Showman,” about Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus.

Story said the theme comes from the show’s opening number, which is from the movie.

“We just thought that that was a great title and it worked well,” Storey said. “We’ve kind of gone with that theme.”

The show also includes music from other shows and skits.

OHS faculty member Aaron Cox will be the emcee for the show.

She added that everyone has a solo and there is a duet.

The students are all “pretty great,” she said.

“I love them. They’ve been doing a really good job, working hard and just seeing the progress they’ve made since the beginning of the year has been pretty amazing, so we’re really pleased with them,” Storey said. “And I can tell, they’re getting really excited about the show.”

“We’ve got several seniors we’ll be losing at the end of the year. I’m excited that they’re getting to end on such a good note,” she added.

Storey said the music is difficult, but the students have handled it well.

“We’ve been working on it since January and they’ve already gotten an opportunity to perform some of the music for different gigs and such,” she said.

The group performs for a district meeting Monday night and for middle and elementary school students May 9.

For Rene Rodriguez, Xan Carrasco, Jealousy Jones and Jeffery Howell, all 18-year-old seniors, this is their last show with Legacy.

They have some mixed emotions about that.

“It’s just kind of sad that we’ve had this long journey to get here and now it’s coming to an end,” Rodriguez said.

“I’m just happy to have been with this group and been a part of legacy and I hope that I leave a mark here,” Jones added.

Rodriguez said he thinks they all have that hope. They also hope that everyone who comes into legacy or moves up as upper classmen will make them proud “and continue to do great things.”

Other students in the show were Justin Lawhone, Kierra Higgs and Salma Lujan.
