Local actors, singers, dancers and other creatives are gearing up for the spring production of the Red Stocking Revue, 

Under the creative direction of professional director Kelley Lynn.

The song and dance variety show relies on the talents of talented local citizens who dedicate their talents to CancerCare, which helps fight cancer and those affected by the disease.

The annual event will take place March 20-23 at Schreiber High School, with three evening shows and one Sunday matinee. 

The Revue has raised more than $3 million of dollars since its inception more than 30 years ago.

Many of the skits in the show are written as musical and oral advertisements.  Each number showcases a particular Port Washington business and the services it offers. 

Thus far, organizers say they drawn an eclectic group of nearly 100 area singers, actors and dancers through auditions.  

The cast will also feature kids. Children over the age of five do not have to try out, and are automatically welcomed into the cast. The first children’s registration and rehearsal will take place at the Manorhaven Senior Center, at 6:30 p.m. on  Jan. 20.  Any child wishing to join the cast should be there ready to begin rehearsing.  

Priced at $30 for reserved seats; $20 for general admission, and $15 for seniors and children for the Thursday and Sunday performances, tickets for all performances are available at the following local businesses: Salon Evergreen; Anthony’s World of Floors; Carnel’s Printing; Ayhan’s Mediterranean Marketplace & Café; Accents on Real Estate.  Tickets can also be obtained by visitingwww.redstockingrevue.org.
