Dust off those dancin’ shoes, tune up those instruments, and warm up those vocal cords; it’s time for spring auditions for the 26th annual Senior Variety Show. Performances will be Friday, August 14, at 7:30 pm and Saturday, August 15, at 2:00 pm at Ames City Auditorium. Any Story County resident or worker who is 60 years of age or older, is encouraged to try out for this year’s production, “Antics Roadshow.”
An informational meeting and social for curious newcomers and past senior performers will be Thursday, February 13th from 3:30-5:00 pm at Northminster Presbyterian Church, 1416 20th Street, in Ames. Show directors, Kat Norris, Julie Minot, and Ronnie Lindeman will be on hand to talk about their creative vision for the upcoming show at 4 pm. Vocal numbers, instrumentals, skits, story-telling, and dance presentations around the theme of antics or roads, streets, traveling, etc. would be appropriate. (You may even want to check Google to get those creative juices flowing.) Acts should be no more than 3 minutes long. If you can’t attend the social, please email Julie at Julie.firstname.lastname@example.org or Ronnie at 515-292-9394 to answer any questions you might have.
Auditions will be Saturday, April 4, 10am- and 2-4pm. Those who are putting a finishing touch on their acts will be seen Saturday, May 9, 10 am-noon, all at Northminster Presbyterian. If these times don’t work for you, the directors will try to accommodate.
If you’ve had a hankering to perform on stage, now is your time. It’s a great way to meet people, share your talent, have fun, and raise money for senior needs. Take this opportunity to audition for the next Senior Variety Show. For more information please visit us on Facebook and at www.seniorvarietyshow.org
