Following an exciting audition weekend and dozens of rehearsal sessions, the 2014 Fantasia cast is set! There are exciting times at RCC, with the Marching Tigers just back from appearing as the ‘grand finale’ in the London New Year’s Day Parade AND the winter drum line enjoying an amazing influx of talent. And the ‘buzz’ around Fantasia is right up there with the rest of the department of performing arts at the college, with a cast of 13 men and 15 women - all dedicated entertainers boasting a wide variety of background experiences!
Everyone’s heard the expression ‘don’t rain on my parade.’ Somehow, the weather Gods weren’t paying attention over the holiday break as the Riverside City College “All Star” Band travelled to London and Madrid, to appear on international television, in the two most widely publicized events of their kind in the world! Yes, it was the 28th annual London New Year’s Day Parade AND the “Cabalgata de Reyes” in Madrid, Spain and it RAINED on both historic parades! To say that the “Marching Tigers” got soaked would be an understatement!
