The Interlakes Summer Theatre will be presenting a community talent show on Saturday, March 4th at 5:30 and Sunday, March 5th at 2:00 and that show will be hosted by Pat Kelly, Radio Celebrity of WEMJ/Binnie Media and his celebrity brother, Chris Kelly, Remax/Greater Meredith Program, et al.
Producer Nancy Barry explained, “This whole idea grew out of a musical theatre class I taught for “older adults”. It was really interesting for me to work with adults versus kids. For some it was just a hobby, some an item on their bucket list. Everyone had a different priority, but I think everyone learned something about themselves or about how performers approach their work–it was fun!”
“I had to laugh”, continued Barry, “when one of the performers expressed concerned that her material wasn’t really “vintage” enough to go in the show. I had to explain, that actually it was the performers that were supposed to be vintage”.
“There are a lot of talented people here in the Lakes Region. Not just singers. I have an actor who impersonates Carol Channing, Ethel Merman and Cher…We have a husband and wife who do music and comedy—billed as The Smothers Brothers meets George and Gracie…and there are a few other fabulous surprises…but I don’t want to disclose just yet!”
This talent show will be a fundraiser for the Interlakes Summer Theatre to help defray the costs of royalties. All tickets are $20.00 and can be purchased by calling 603 707-6035 or online at interlakestheatre.com.
