The final number

Hearing the applause of the audience, Eric Hilker and Olivia Dames (12),  complete their routine during the number “Boogy Shoes” in the OnStage dinner show finale, Dec. 1. “It’s going really well. At first it was hard to get back into the swing of things,” Dames said. “But our shows have turned out really awesome so far.” Since she is a senior, this year is her last with her OnStage family. “It’s really sad because it’s something unlike any of the other things I’m involved in here at school,” Dames said. “We spend a lot of time together even though it’s a class, and we still meet every night of show weeks.”
