Preparations for the University of Maine at Fort Kent "The Scott & Chuck Show," planned for this coming weekend, are well underway with a complete line-up of talented performers to participate.
The talk-show, much like the old Johnny Carson show, will be held in the Fox Auditorium Friday, April 20 at 7 p.m. The show is a new twist on the campus community "Talent Revue," which brought together some of the region's most gifted performers for an evening of competition.
Co-hosts for the evening's event are UMFK Director of Student Affairs, Scott Voisine and UMFK Professor of Oral Communications and Performing Arts, Charles E. Closser.
?Chuck and I have done the annual talent revues for eleven years and we felt it was time to shake things up and do something different. This show promises to be a lot of fun. Audiences should be prepared to go home with their bellies aching from all the laughter. It?s always a pleasure for Chuck and I to host any event that provides a venue for showcasing our local talent,? said Voisine.
Talk show fans will see the familiar host desk, the interview couch and a performance area. After each performance, performers will be interviewed by Voisine and Closser. In addition to performers, there also will be a crazy cooking segment and a wacky fashion segment that will involve audience members. The three segments promise to be hilarious and off-the-wall. Voisine and Closser are famous for that.
A sneak peek of a few performers for the evening are Annie Charles, current Aroostook Idol; Samantha Boutot, UMFK student and local favorite; Bruno Hicks, UMFK professor of Education and folk musician; Pam Cyr, local favorite; Melanie Saucier, award winning local vocalist; and Rapture, a local musical trio.
The audience also will have the opportunity to win prizes and be a part of the show. The show contains some mature content, so it may not be suitable for children.
Admission for the general public is $8 and free for UMFK students with an ID. Proceeds will benefit UMFK Performing Arts.
