Auditions being held for Crossville's Got Talent Show

CROSSVILLE — The fourth annual Crossville’s Got Talent Show, a fundraiser for the Fair Park Senior Center in Crossville, is right around the corner. If you enjoy performing, this could be your chance to win as much as $300, but you have to get signed up this week.

The hosts for the show every year are entertainers D.J. and Donna Garrison, who always bring some real show biz excitement to the show. D.J. has worked with many famous personalities: “Smokey” Robinson and the rest of the crew of Motown’s family, the studio band behind all the great Motown hits, Jack “Black Jack” Ashford and The Funk Brothers, and his friend Marvin Gaye. His first album, Children of the World, which produced the single “The Windows of Our Life” and others, got airplay as well as heavy jukebox play. D.J. even wrote a song for the talent show.

Fair Park has some experienced judges for this year’s show. Cumberland County Playhouse star Bryce McDonald has been in New York for the past eight years working as a stage manager for many Broadway and off Broadway shows. He is happy to return to Crossville for the Playhouse’s 49th season. Tony Perry, well-known radio personality and owner of Star Productions Studios in Crossville, which offer all things media, recording, music, video and graphics, will be a judge.  Ruth Lucas will also serve as a judge. She is always busy with her husband, Wayne, with shows, events, parties and karaoke in the area.

Crossville  is full of talented folks and the Palace Theatre in downtown Crossville on Friday, April 25, at 7 p.m. will be the place to be to catch the talent. Tickets are $10 and are on sale at the Fair Park Senior Center, 1433 Livingston Rd.

The sponsors for this year’s show are Mayberry’s Furniture on Main St.; Mayberry’s Interiors on Peavine Rd.; the 5th Street Market Place and Café on West Ave; and Simonton’s Cheese House and Antiques and Collectibles on Hwy. 127. All of the sponsors are in Crossville.

For more information call Tina at 484-7416. They hope to see you at Crossville’s Got Talent.

  • Gypsy Rose to visit Fair Park

    The Cumberland County Playhouse is currently performing the award-winning Broadway play “Gypsy.” A great American story set during the 1920s fading vaudeville circuit, "Gypsy" portrays the rise of famed burlesque performer and stage mother Gypsy Rose Lee as she journeys across the country with her mother and sister during a time when Vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born. The complex character of Rose could be described as bold and brassy, as she steamrolls everyone in her way to turn her daughters June and Louise into child stars.
