It’ll be anything but pandemonium and chaos, and nothing but fun, when Ferris High School parents and teachers hit the stage on March 8 at 2 p.m. to perform “MayHAM at the Museum.”

The annual musical variety show is put on by Ferris’ “Ham on Regal Players” and is in its 46th year. The shows are parent written, performed, and produced, and include dancers, singers and unique characters. More than 250 Ferris parents and 40 committees, along with numerous Spokane businesses have contributed and worked long hours to put this fundraiser together, the largest at Ferris.

Guys wearing wolf masks and tiaras, moms as superheroes, knights and Egyptian queens make “MayHAM” entertaining and full of laughter.

Tickets for the special performance on March 8 are $5 per person and free for seniors. Opening night is Wednesday, March 11, at 7:30 p.m., with additional evening performances through March 14. There will also be a matinee performance on Saturday, March 14. Evening shows are $8 and the March 14 matinee is $6.

Tickets can be purchased at 2nd Look Books, 2829 E. 29th Ave.; Round Table Pizza, 4510 S. Regal St.; Rosauers, 2610 E. 29th Ave.; the Ferris High School Business Office, or from any Ham on Regal member.
