Advocates for Children is delighted to announce the 20th Annual production of Every Child’s A Star in 2013. Auditions for this perennial favorite will be held at Expedition Church (32 Center Road, Cartersville) on both Saturday, December 15 from 9 a.m. to noon, and Tuesday, December 18 from 6-8 p.m. (Choose whichever time is more convenient.) Children from kindergarten through grade 12 are invited to audition. We want lots of variety! Acts can be solo or ensembles, and can include singing, other musical acts, dances, gymnastics, juggling, puppetry, pantomime, ventriloquists, magic, comedic skits. The sky is the limit—because once again-- that’s where the stars are!
Musical contestants should bring CD audio for their 2-3 minute auditions and plan to arrive early to complete registration materials.
There is no fee to participate. However, each child in every act selected to be in the show is required to sell at least 10 tickets (at $10 each) to the performance, which will be held early this year, on Saturday, February 15 at 7:30 p.m. at the Woodland High School Performing Arts Center. All proceeds will support Advocates for Children’s many child abuse prevention and support programs and services.
The Woodland C.A.T.S. group will produce the show this year, and we are also happy to announce that Avian Brown, the reigning Bartow and Georgia Distinguished Young Woman, will serve as emcee.
This 20th annual event will be the first in a series of celebrations in 2013 as Advocates looks back on 30 years of working to help children in Bartow County and beyond. As part of the show, we are looking for pictures and videos from all of our prior performances. We would also like to talk to “alumni” of the show over the years who might be willing to share with us how participating in ECAS may have impacted their lives or careers.
