The Port Washington peninsula is home to many talented singers, dancers, musicians and other performers. This month, a collection of these people will come together at the inaugural Port’s Got Talent show.
The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20, in the Jeanne Rimsky Theater in Landmark on Main Street in Port Washington. Performers from children to seniors will take the stage.
Tickets are $25 per person or $35 for preferred seating. All profits will go toward programming at the Port Washington Senior Center.
Warren Schein, the former president of the Port Washington Chamber of Commerce, helped to put the show together.
“We were thinking of doing a cabaret show and I was planning on bringing some friends in from the city,” he said. “But the group decided we should use Port people. We said, ‘Let’s try it with local talent,’ which certainly made sense.”
Three auditions were held to determine who would make the show. Performers from local performing arts studios like Bach2Rock, Berest Dance Studio, Danceworks and Voice Academy will take part. Singers from the Red Stocking Revue and Port Washington Play Troupe will also perform.
Schein, who will serve as master of ceremonies, said it will not be a competition.
“There won’t be a first, second or third place, and no prizes will be given out,” he said. “It’s a variety show, like ‘The Ed Sullivan Show.’ It’s all about community spirit, and hopefully people and their family and friends will come out to see them perform.”
Tickets can be purchased at the Senior Center at 80 Manorhaven Blvd., Anthony’s World of Floors at 49 Manorhaven Blvd., Daniel Gale Sotheby’s at 350 Main St., and Laffey Real Estate at 215 Main St. Tickets can also be purchased online through the Senior Center’s Facebook page.
Tax deductible sponsorship opportunities for the show are available for prices ranging from $100 to $750. For more information, contact the Senior Citizens Center at 516-883-6656.
