The show was the result of nearly two months of rehearsals, said Studio V owner Kalee Voegtle.

“These kids have worked really hard the last eight weeks,” she said.

Voegtle credited Jeana Womble as the driving force behind the night, teaching vocals and arranging choreography.

“She’s been amazing,” Voegtle said.
