Stars of Tomorrow show to feature 19 acts by area youths

by Ted Conover

During the sign-up for the year 2000 “Stars of Tomorrow” show, Carson Valley youths seeking spots on the program submitted 19 acts. Some of the acts are by single performers, and others will have multiple participants. Auditions have been completed, and show director Ann Delahay says a dress rehearsal is scheduled for Feb. 10, one night before show time.

Good news for the performers is a contribution of $250 by MInden Urgent Care. It will be awarded to the third-place winner. Awards of $1,000 and $#500, sponsored by Gardnerville-Carson Valley Kiwanis Club, for first and second place, are already on the books.

An added feature this year will be a performance by Anthony Janssen, a Douglas High School junior, who was the first-place winner last year. He will present a brief program of instrumental and vocal music while the judges are making their decisions.

Delahay attributes increased interest in the show this year to the enthusiastic reception received last year. Another factor, she said, is that the scholarship awards have been increased.

In addition to the talent contest, other young people have submitted entries for the art show. This year, awards will be presented for graphic art, photography, drawing, painting and pottery.

So far, demands for tickets have been such that a second printing was needed. Tickets can still be obtained from Kiwanis and Key Club members. The Key Club is a newly formed Kiwanis-sponsored organization for teen-agers whose goals are to help the community.

The show is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 12, in the Pau-Wa-Lu Middle School cafetorium. The curtain will go up at 8 p.m.
