Variety Show


DATE:Friday, February 7
TIME:6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
LOCATION:Cherry Crest

We are very excited to announce Cherry Crest’s Variety Show will be on Friday, February 7.

What is the Variety Show? 
The Variety Show is an opportunity to celebrate our student’s amazing creative abilities. It’s not a recital, instead, it’s a collection of 2-minute acts of dance, acrobatics, comedy, rock bands, martial arts, and musical pieces. It’s fun, and a little bit crazy. Fifth graders emcee the event and parents help keep it running smoothly.  

Variety Show Guidelines: 

  1. We encourage 2 or more kids per act
  2. Acts must be under 2 minutes in length
  3. All music must be in mp3 format for tryouts, and child appropriate in language/content 

Volunteer Needs:

  • LEAD (2 people) – will help develop and oversee the 2019-2020 show. These people will help the kids show off the variety of talent at Cherry Crest. Sign up with a friend! 
  • PHOTOGRAPHER – photograph the auditions, rehearsal, and show then post to Shutterfly. You will also select photos for yearbook. If adventurous, putting photos into a Shutterfly book for parents to purchase. This is another role that would be fun to sign up for with a friend. 
  • MUSIC MASTER – pulls mp3s from parents, checks length and quality, compiling play list, learning from Cherry Crest Staff how to use equipment, and DJ-ing the show. 

We are looking forward to another entertaining Variety Show and can’t wait to see all the talented performers this year!

NOTE: There will be a piano recital in the spring. More information will be available at a later date.
