We are excited to announce that Cherry Crest’s Variety Show is back. Happening on Friday, March 31st, the show will start at 6pm and will coincide with the Online Auction.

What is the Variety Show? 
The Variety Show is an opportunity to celebrate our student’s amazing creative abilities. It’s not a recital, instead, it’s a collection of 2-minute acts of dance, acrobatics, comedy, rock bands, martial arts, and musical pieces. It’s fun, and a little bit crazy. Fifth graders emcee the event and parents help keep it running smoothly.  

Variety Show Guidelines: 

  1. We encourage 2 or more kids per act. The more, the merrier! We can help you find more kids to do an act with, if helpful.
  2. Acts must be under 2 minutes in length
  3. All music must be in mp3 format for tryouts, and child appropriate in language/content 

Volunteer Needs:

  • LEAD (2 people) – Help develop and oversee the show with the Co-Chairs and organize a performance that will showcase the variety of talent at Cherry Crest. Sign up with a friend! 
  • PHOTOGRAPHER – photograph the auditions, rehearsal, and show, and then post to Shutterfly. You’ll also select photos for the yearbook. If you’re feeling adventurous, put the photos into a Shutterfly book for parents to purchase and look for a high school volunteer to create a video to sell. This is another role that would be fun to sign up for with a friend. 
  • MUSIC MASTER – Pull mp3s from parents, check length and quality, compile the play list, learn from Cherry Crest Staff how to use the equipment, and DJ the entire show. Feel free to sign up with a friend!
  • FOOD & DRINKS – Help the day of event run smoothly with pre-ordered snacks/packages and refreshments to be sold onsite.
  • AUCTION SETUP – Help get everything ready for the auction that’s happening simultaneously as the Variety Show. Work with the Art Auction team to display classroom works of art and the procurement team who’s gotten some of the best neighborhood products and family/teacher experiences together. Put your best marketing foot forward as you bring everything to life!
  • More volunteer signups are here.
  • Contact: varietyshow@cherrycrest-ptsa.org to volunteer or with questions.

We are looking forward to another entertaining Variety Show and can’t wait to see all the talented performers this year!
