Variety Show


LOCATION:Cherry Crest

We are very excited to announce Cherry Crest’s Variety Show will be on ?

This year we are doing something new! Solo piano performances will not be during the evening show on the 25th. Instead, pianists can sign up to play piano in the school lobby on select Thursday mornings from 7:45am – 8:00am while students arrive at school. This brings the musical magic close to the kids for everyone’s enjoyment. 

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. Each student may only be in one act
  3. Acts must be under 2 minutes in length
  4. All music must be in mp3 format for tryouts, and child appropriate in language/content 

Volunteer Need

  • LEAD (2 people) – will help develop and oversee the 2018 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!
