Tickets:
$25.00 – Reserved Seating

Website : http://www.apextheatrejax.com

 

Apex Theatre Studio presents its second annual spring musical, High School Musical. Disney Channel’s smash hit movie musical comes to life onstage as Troy, Gabriella and the students of “East High” must deal with issues of first love, friends and family while balancing their classes and extracurricular activities.

The show features talented young performers between the ages of 11-18 from a wide range of area schools including Ponte Vedra High School, Landrum Middle School, Palmer Catholic School, Nease High School, Douglas Anderson School of the Arts and Lavilla School of the Arts. The approximate running time is two hours with one 15 minute intermission.

“We had such a wonderful response to last year’s production of The Lion King (Jr.), it made sense to keep the Disney vibe going,” remarked Ian Mairs, Managing Director of Apex Theatre Studio. “For a certain generation of young people, this show’s songs and dance numbers are ingrained in their hearts and minds on a cellular level thanks to countless viewings of the original television production,” added David Loudermilk, the show’s artistic director and choreographer.

8+ miles

24-29 Obstacles

There’s nothing mediocre about this middle distance race. The Spartan Super offers the ideal blend between distance and speed. Offering racers a true athletic test.

Developed as the second race in the Spartan Trifecta, the Super is where you prove to yourself you’ve got everything it takes to face the Beast.

Apr 28 @ 4:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Roscolusa 2018 @ Roscolusa Songwriters Festival | Ponte Vedra Beach | Florida | United States

We are a songwriters festival based in Ponte Vedra, FL where we bring hit songwriters from Nashville, TN to the warm beaches of Florida to share the stories behind their songs for a one-night musical event. Our favorite part of Roscolusa is the opportunity to donate to a charity. This year, a portion of our proceeds will benefit the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund. Their mission is to help local families tackle childhood cancer.

 

 

Our mission: To bring the cozy living room atmosphere outdoors for an intimate night of popular music performed by the original songwriters themselves and to shine a light on the creative world of songwriting. At Roscolusa, you not only get to hear hit songs, but you also get to hear the stories behind them. We created Roscolusa to be a multifaceted event. Yes, we will have some of the best singer-songwriters performing their original music, but you will also see some of Jacksonville’s finest food trucks, a play area for kids, and a teen zone!

Our favorite part of Roscolusa is the opportunity to give to a charity. A portion of all our proceeds will benefit the  Tom Coughlin Jay Fund. Their mission is to help families tackle childhood cancer by providing comprehensive financial, emotional, and practical support.

We are proud to announce that Roscolusa Songwriters Festival presented byMomentum Transportation, will be returning for our 7th annual event at Nocatee located in Ponte Vedra, Florida on Saturday April 28th, 2018.

Pete started his musical background after being expelled from school aged 15. With way too much time on his hands, he started a band with 2 close friends. Pete taught himself guitar and drums and they hit the road. After a trip to Ibiza, and the first whisperings of ecstasy and acid house, he decided that electronic music was the future, and traded his drum kit for a pair of technics turntables.After playing numerous illegal parties around the South East of England he gained his first residency in 1990 at the Hand & Spear in Surrey, and soon turned it into one of the biggest nights in the whole of the UK. Pete’s DJ career took off quickly and it wasn’t long before he was guesting all over Europe. In ’92 he launched Ugly Bug records. It was an instant hit, especially with big hitting radio dj’s Pete Tong and Judge Jules. Pete became a resident guest on Kiss 100fm, and his first release as his main recording alias, The Shaker, – ‘Just Lick It’, became the club hit of the year. The remix work came flooding in, from labels such as London, FFRR, Hooj, Ore, Fade, and Perfecto. His remix of Zee’s Dreamtime was essential new tune on Pete Tong’s BBC Radio1 show, and finally in 96 Pete signed to XL recordings, after a 3 way struggle between A&M, XL, and Maifesto to secure his signature. He went on to release 3 more singles under the Shaker guise – ‘Mooncat’, ‘Strong to Survive’ and ‘Star’ which were all massive club anthems around the world. His djing skills started to attract the talents of promoters as far afield as Capetown and Durban in S.Africa, as well as New York, L.A. and Denver in the USA. For most, this would have been the peak of an outstanding career, but Pete was after something a bit more substantial. Despite the massive chart success, Pete reinvented his sound and launched a new label: Red Ant Records. Over 100 releases later, Red Ant is going from strength to strength. Cutting edge underground dance music. Pete Bones may not take himself too seriously, his music however, is another story. The label has artists such as Alex Costa, The Shaker, The Presslaboys and the Sleepfreaks.Carefully avoiding the restrictions of the obsession with pigeon holing dance music.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCTION

Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever. Called “one of the most fully immersive shows ever to wallop Broadway” by The New York Times, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time is a record-breaking theatrical phenomenon that simply must not be missed.
