Dust off those dancin’ shoes, tune up those strings, and warm up those vocal cords; it’s time for Spring auditions for the 24th annual Senior Variety Show. Performances will be Friday, August 17 at 7:30pm and Saturday, August 18 at 2:00pm at Ames City Auditorium. Any senior in Story County, 60 years of age or older, is encouraged to try out for this year’s production, “Simply Stellar.”

An informational meeting for any interested senior performers will be Thursday, March 8, at 3:30pm at Northminster Presbyterian Church, 1416 20th Street, in Ames. Show directors, Ronnie Lindeman and Julie Minot will be on hand to talk about their creative vision for the show. Vocal numbers, instrumentals, skits, story-telling, and dance presentations around the theme of “stellar” would be appropriate. Perhaps songs like “Fly Me to the Moon” or “Stardust” might get those creative juices flowing; or maybe the old poem “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” Acts should be no more than 3 minutes long.

Auditions will be Monday and Tuesday, April 9 and 10; and Friday, May 11, all from 3:00-5:00pm at Northminster.

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, and have fun! Take this opportunity to audition for the next Senior Variety Show. For more information please call 515-292-9394 or visit us on Facebook and at
