MIDDLEPORT — “Christmas Through the Eyes of a Child” is the theme of the annual talent revue to be held at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 23, on stage at the Riverbend Arts Council on North Second Street in Middleport.
Tickets will be sold at the door at $7 for adults and $5 for children. Prior to the opening of the show, the Big Bend Community Band under the direction of Toney Dingess will play Christmas music.
This year’s show will benefit both the Riverbend Arts Council and the Meigs Band Alumni Boosters.
According to Director Julie Howard the show will bring some new and old faces to the stage, including performances by Holly and Bob DeLong, Patty Fellure’s dancers, Bonne Kreseen, Todd Bissell, a children’s choir, Meigs High School band students and the cast of “Bah, Hogwash! An Appalachian Christmas Carol.”.
Also new this year is the plan for the distribution of proceeds from the ticket sales equally shared by the Riverbend Arts Council and the Meigs Band Alumni Boosters which is supporting the effort to raise funds to build a permanent concession stand at the new football stadium.
Concessions will be sold during the evening by the Riverbend Arts Council.
Santa is expected to make an appearance during the evening.
