10 to show talents at Turnstone’s Center Stage
Pokagon offers Easter Trail; ‘Star Is Born’ auditions
Turnstone returns with its Center Stage talent show for all abilities on Tuesday, May 9, at The Clyde Theatre. Local funk fusion band Los Galaxy took home the inaugural $1,000 prize last year. Ten more acts are vying for it this year.
Among the contestants will be guitarist Willy Booger, vocalist Mary Crisp, vocalist KC Ramone, pianist Jeremy Francis, Ratio Dance (Hallie Gibson, Kynlee Fryer, Ady Tuttle), vocalist Conner Johnson, blues band Zen BBQ (Samuel Graham, Aden Carson, Dillon Diven, Ben Finkel, Autumn Toth), vocalist Ellise Young, vocalist MarShay Neely, and dancer Sockie Phommachanh.
“Choosing the finalists was not an easy task because we had lots of great auditions, but only 10 final spots,” said Rena Shown, chief of development and strategic partnerships at Turnstone. “We are excited for each act to perform at The Clyde Theatre for a chance to win $1,000. It’s really exciting to see the community get involved with this event again. With this being our second year, we hope to continue to watch this event grow.”
Tickets are $50 and available at turnstone.org/
centerstage, by calling (260) 483-2100, or stopping at Plassman Athletic Center, 3320 N. Clinton St.
