North High Polars perform at Fringe Festival

Three high school students from North St. Paul — Alison Michelle Anderson, Izabella George and Jeremy Wales — are appearing in a new musical called "Seriously Bugged!" at the Minneapolis Fringe Festival.

Already three shows in, they will be performing again on Thursday, Aug. 6 at 10 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 8 at 8:30 p.m. at the Ritz Theater Proscenium, 345 13th Ave. NE, Minneapolis.

All three are members of the Northern Lights Show Choir at North High School and have significant speaking roles in the murder-mystery musical. Wales knits the story together as a small town Newscaster. George shows off her vocal and comedic talents as the sassy Officer Phylicia. Anderson, who plays college student and town hall intern Daisy Dujour, sings "Blood Red Pout."

The creators of "Seriously Bugged!," Timothy Chapp and Desdamona Racheli, have been writing songs together for approximately eight years. Previously an accompanist for the North High School choirs, Racheli has toured nationally and internationally with a number of artists, and has won awards for songwriting and video production.

Fringe Festival shows are no more than one hour in length, and feature performance art, dance, concerts, plays, musicals, and more, many of which are newly created works.

The 2015 Minnesota Fringe Festival runs from July 30th through August 9th. Additional information, including performance schedules, venues, and how to purchase tickets, can be found at
