North Warren Community Variety Show set for Friday

CHESTERTOWN - A substantial number of both students and adults are ready to present their talents to the public Friday March 19 at the North Warren Variety Show.

Thirty acts have been scheduled to perform at the event, set for 7 p.m. in the North Warren school auditorium.

North Warren Music Teacher Maria Swartz said Tuesday that the presentations are primarily vocal and instrumental - but other acts are booked, including dancers, a magic show, several story-tellers and even a hula-hoop spinner.

"It's a great community event, and it provide s a valuable opportunity for students to get up on stage and express themselves," Swartz said, noting all ages will be featured.

Emcees for the event are North Warren Central Principal Theresa Andrew and local High School Science Eric Welch.

Among the acts will be the pupils of Joanne Ellsworth's pre-school, both a Kindergarten group and a sixth-grade class at North Warren, and the dancers of Crystal Ortiz's dance studio.

Junior Lindsey Meade, a noted vocalist in the area, will be singing Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen, She'll be accompanied by the Steve Smith Band.

The North Warren Faculty Band closes the show with the classic ode, "Mustang Sally".

Admission to the show is $3 for adults, $2 for students or seniors and $10 for families. Proceeds benefit the Performing Arts Club which sponsors trips and musical awards - and underwrites the cost of private lessons for students.

"All are welcome to the show and enjoy the fun," she said.
