Join Us for the Variety Show Rehearsal on February 21

Join us for McKinley School’s Variety Show on Friday, March 2, 7pm! Got a talent you want to share? The sky’s the limit! Singing, dancing, gymnastics, playing an instrument, karate, comedy, magic, hula hopping….if you can do it, we want to see it!

There’s no judging or scoring, this is all for fun! Perform by yourself or with friends. No forms to submit, just sign up at one of the rehearsals.

Music must come with your child on a CD. We waste at least 30 minutes of every rehearsal trying to get music off phones. If you can’t burn it yourself we will buy it and burn if for you. You just need to tell us in advance what the song is and bring $2 to the first rehearsal.

If your child wants to be in the show but doesn’t know what to do please contact us. Katie Romeo and Valerie Rubio have offered to work with kids to develop an act. We can also group kids together who don’t want to perform alone.

Rehearsals start at 6:30 (they will run until everyone has a chance to perform). You must attend at least 2 rehearsals and everyone needs to attend the dress rehearsal.

  • Wednesday, February 21, 6:30pm
