Upcoming Talent Extravaganza*

Youth, mentors, volunteers, and staff from the King Street Youth Center come together for an afternoon of fun and excitement at the Third Annual Talent Extravaganza at Contois Auditorium on Saturday, March 14 at 2 pm.

 The talent show was created by the Greenblott family of Burlington as a way of celebrating the many talents of our city’s young people. Youth and adult performers have been practicing their acts together for the past two months and are excited to perform for the community.  Scheduled Acts include an African drum circle led by Mashobane Moruthane and a hip-hop dance troupe featuring Liza Mercy of the Movement Center.

 The event is ideal for families of all ages and will include a silent auction, bake sale, and raffle. Tickets may be purchased in advance or at the door and cost $10 for adults and $5 for children. All proceeds benefit the King StreetYouth Center.  For tickets, contact Jordan Benkov at 802-862-6736, extension 102.
