Taylor Coombs has never laughed so hard.

The Corinth High School Follies director has been at the head of the senior class talent show for six years, but this year's class she said is "one of a kind."

"Corinthian Bandstand" kicked off on Tuesday night and continues through Saturday inside the CHS auditorium at 7 p.m. each night. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the high school office or at the door.

"Our opening night was one of the best I've ever experienced," said Coombs. "These kids are extremely talented and I'm so proud of them. This show is so funny ... I don't think I've ever laughed this hard."

The bandstand-style show features an array of music and favorite songs sung by graduating seniors of the Class of 2019.

"I know for many, this will be a blast from the past with so much wonderful music," said the director. "From 'Old Town Road' to the 'Land of 1000 Dances', there's something everyone will love."

Follies will feature senior performances of "Louie Louie," "Drift Away," "Boogie Shoes," "Locomotion," "Total Eclipse of the Heart," "Walking on Sunshine," "YMCA" and "Great Balls of Fire."

Comedy skits will be performed between each musical performance.

The class worked two months on this year's Follies performance said Coombs.

"It takes a small army to put on a show like this and I cannot say enough about my support staff, decoration crew, parents and live band "" that's one thing that sits us apart from others," she said. "The band gives countless hours to work with the kids to learn the music and play with them and create a performance of a lifetime."
