The group can be seen rehearsing at the Joyful Sole studio in downtown Perry earlier this month. The students were not in full costume but can be seen displaying some of the unique and creative costumes created by Debbie Bentley, Betty Jo Atkins and Sherry Gaboury. The sets for the group’s productions were created by Sarah Thomas, Amber Evans, Sarah Bentley and Erin Dameron, with the assistance of Debbie’s husband, Bob Bentley.
