Young Talent To Sing For Their Supper

Third Annual Saratoga Children’s Theatre Showcase on Tap

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Show tunes and mo’ tunes will be part of the menu as talented performers ranging in age from seven to their mid-teens strut their stuff at Saratoga Children’s Theatre’s (SCT) annual showcase and silent auction on Sunday, January 26 at Longfellows Restaurant. 


“Reservations are going strong as usual. This is one of our most popular events,” said Meg Kelly, SCT’s executive director. “Last year was a complete sellout and right now we only have less than 50 spots remaining.”


In addition to the performances, the event will feature over 30 silent auction items and door prizes (including golf and pampering packages as well as SCT summer camp discount coupons) and a special announcement about SCT’s 2014-summer camp programming. “Registration for summer camp beings online the very next day,” Meg said, “So this is a chance to learn about all the offerings and choose the slot you want.” 


An early-bird registration discount will be in effect until March, so you can bid on and win a camp voucher at this event and get your children registered early at a double-discounted rate. Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet the directors and artistic staff that they will be working with over the summer. 


The performance highlights are divided into three broad categories: there will be over a dozen teen solo performances, accompanied and MC’d by local musician extraordinaire Rick Bolton, over a dozen young performer (ages seven to 13) group show tunes managed by summer camp music director Maria Laurenzo, as well as three mixed group numbers with even some adults thrown in. 


All of this is accompanied by a sit-down luncheon provided by Longfellows’ excellent kitchen, with multiple choices to suit everyone’s taste. 


Everybody who attends is a winner, as the warm feeling you get from helping an excellent local institution that develops young talent is something everyone gets to savor long after the dessert is savored and the last “bravo!” is exclaimed.
