SPARTA, NJ - Our Lady of the Lake Church in Sparta will be presenting its first ever ‘Fall Follies Talent Show’ on Saturday, November 16, at 7 p.m. at Reverend Brown School’s McKenna Hall, 294 Sparta Avenue. The cost is $5 for adults and $3 for seniors and students. Snacks will be provided. Open to the public, tickets can be purchased at the door.
‘Fall Follies’ features over twenty performers of all ages from grade school, high school and adults and highlights a variety of talents, including singers, dancers, comedians, gymnasts and musicians. The purpose of Fall Follies is to showcase people’s talents in a welcoming environment from those who are just starting out to those who perform regularly. “Fall Follies” will also have a special performance by the pastor of Our Lady of the Lake, Father David McDonnell.
“The rehearsal process is a natural community builder," remarks Ognibene."When a young performer is nervous, other performers cheer them on. It's truly wonderful to witness the confidence growing when a performer gets that support from others and recognizes their own talent.”
The production team consists of Sparta residents Allison Ognibene, director; Dianna Kollar, assistant director; John Kollar, technical director; Josette Stock, choreographer; Hamburg resident and director of music, Linda O’Connell; and Fredon resident, decorating and hospitality coordinator, Joanne Kirk.
"Come out and cheer on our young and young-at-heart performers in Fall Follies!"
