A Night at the Apollo will be held Saturday, February 22, at 7:00 p.m. in ACTC’s J. B. Sowards Theatre at the College Drive Campus.
Harlem’s Apollo Theatre has long been a stepping stone for famous performers such as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holliday, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Patti Labelle. A Night at the Apollo gives amateur Tri-State performers a chance to share their talents in music, dance, poetry, comedy and drama.
A local version of the TV program “America’s Got Talent,” A Night at the Apollo is both a performance venue and a talent contest. Amateur solo and group performers may enter the contest. Prizes are $200, $100 and $50 for adults and $75, $50 and $25 for youth up to age 12.
A Night at the Apollo is a free Black History Month program cosponsored by ACTC, the Highlands Museum & Discovery Center and community organizations and individuals. For more information, call the Museum at 606-329-8888 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
