Preparations for the University of Maine at Fort Kent Campus/Community Talent Revue, planned for this coming weekend, are well underway with a complete line-up of talented performers scheduled to participate.
The revue, which will be held in the Fox Auditorium Friday, December 10 at 7:00 p.m., has become a local tradition that brings together some of the region's most gifted performers for an evening of quality entertainment.
UMFK associate director of student programming and producer for the evening's event, Stephanie Cote anticipates a great response from the community.
"There are various instrumental and vocal performers that have signed up to participate. It's also nice to see a mix of campus and community involvement. The audience will not be disappointed," said Cote.
The revue will feature local entertainers competing in two categories with a first place award of $150. Additional prizes will be awarded to second place participants. Along with a category for student and community members, there will be a separate non-competing category for professionals who make their living as entertainers.
Over the last few years, the talent revue has been quite successful in uniting the campus and the community.
"The success of the revue depends on the participation of both the campus and the local community. It's nice to see the university and the community coming together for an evening of fun and entertainment," said Cote.
Charles "Chuck" Closser, professor of oral communications and Scott Voisine, director of student services will be the emcees for the evening.
The Campus Community Talent Revue is open to the public and the community is encouraged to attend. General admission is $3.00. The performance is free to University of Maine at Fort Kent students and staff.
In addition to a great evening of entertainment, audience members will have the opportunity to win $200 worth of door prizes from the UMFK bookstore that will be drawn throughout the evening.
