The Close-Up trip to Washington D.C. may have been cancelled
because of security concerns, but the Close-Up talent show
is still on, and looking for performers.
What Id love to see is if people could come in and do unusual stuff, said high school teacher and program organizer David Fakkema, jugglers, hypnotists, things like that.
The show is on May 4. Fakkema said a technical rehearsal would be held next week. Many local talents have already signed up, primarily musicians and vocalists. Well also have lots of little kids singing and dancing, he said.
The show raises funds to help send high school juniors to Washington, D.C. for a week of intensive governmental study, Fakkema said.
Due to September 11 and anthrax scares, the school board decided it would be best if we didnt go, with what was going on, but now were building funds for next year, Fakkema said.
Tickets for the Close-Up show will be on sale at the performing arts center the night of the show. To volunteer to perform, contact Fakkema at 332-6045
