Rock stars can unite at Grand Theatre Nov. 7

The first Rock­band Revolution will take place at the Fergus Grand The­atre on Nov. 7.

A community initiative focus­ed on families, the event will feature a friendly competi­tion involving the widely popular Rockband® interactive game. The event is an oppor­tunity to encourage young people to get involved with inter­active music performance as an alternative to standard video gaming. It also demon­strates new possibilities for future use of the Fergus Grand Theatre.

“The Fergus Grand Theatre offers many opportunities for new types of events,” said Mary Lloyd, Partner at Ralph Basset Associates Inc. “Rock­band Revolution is inten­ded to engage young people in com­munity events. We hope to bring attention to youth-related organizations in the area while increasing awareness about pos­sibilities for community us­age of the facility.”

Participants may compete in one of four age categories: 8 to 12 individual, 13 and over individual, 13 to 17 band of four, or all-ages band. Bands are encouraged to dress up and a prize will be awarded for the best-dressed band.

Advanced registration is recommended. Registration is $10 per individual or $25 for a band of four and includes three attempts to accumulate the high­est score. Prizes will be awarded to winners with the highest score in each category.

Admission is free.
