Good old-fashioned variety show (involving youth)

Friday, July 13, 2012 at 7:30 p.m.  Asheville Community Theatre

As many of you know, Liza Rain will be performing in the Junior version of the Good Old Fashioned Variet Show at ACT.

Good Old Fashioned Variety Show-Junior

Unfortunately, I am working on another show and will be unable to attend. I’d like to invite as many of you as possible to come out and support Liza as well as our beloved ACT!

The judges’ score will be combined with the audience votes to determine the winner. The audience will vote for their favorite by a donation to ACT (one dollar equals one vote). Even if you are unable to attend, you can still make a tax deductible donation through the theatre or I will be collecting cash to make a donation for her.

Tickets are $10 for students and only $15 for adults. Box office 828-254-1320.

(2) On the next night: DramaRama: The Good Old Fashioned Variety Show (involving adults)

On Saturday, July 14 at 7:30 pm, ACT unveils a variety show of the best sort. Funny, awe-inspiring, and extremely entertaining, this show is a perfect sampler of Asheville’s best. Featuring a band led by Aaron Price and hosted by Betsy Puckett and Scottie McCall, “The Good Old Fashioned Variety Show” showcases acts from incredible gospel singing to a jaw-dropping roller-skating routine. Winners are determined by judges’ scores and audience votes (one dollar equals one vote). On the ACT Mainstage. Tickets $25.

(3) Phil A. in NC: On July 9 at Jack of Hearts (GREAT PLACE) in Weaverville…. our duck along with all of the other ducks will be auctioned off… a mere $10 entry fee at the door for a fun filled evening… all for the benefit of the Weaverville Business Association… more in the AC-T article….
