CROSSVILLE — A  benefit concert featuring an impressive lineup of regional favorite entertainers will be Saturday, Aug. 24, at 7 p.m. at the beautifully refurbished Palace Theatre in Crossville. Regina Stephens, owner of R & B Café on Peavine Rd. and one of the outstanding performers, has volunteered to make the musical variety show arrangements, which will benefit the Christian Counseling Center of Cumberland County. Tickets are available through the Palace Theatre box office at 484-6133 or at their location at 27 S. Main St. in downtown Crossville. The doors will open at 6 p.m.

Regina Clark Stephens, a Crossville native, is well known for her superb vocal styling and keyboard accompaniments. She has appeared with the Big South Fork Opry, Tommy Dee Shows, in her own show, “Harmonies," at the Palace and in many DSquared productions. She has assisted D2 by mentoring young, less experienced performers. Stephens has a reputation for professionalism throughout the region.

Another in the star-studded lineup is Dennis Donald, co-founder of DSquared Productions. He is an actor, singer, musician and recording artist and is known as “Mr. Entertainment” due to his musical career spanning 40 years. His diversity in musical talent is unrivaled in the area. Donald currently serves as director of music at Faith Bible Fellowship.

Other performers include well-known local performers Ashley Krohn, Cheyenne, Rusty McClennahan, Aaron Ingram, Judy Fistler and Sandy Thompson round out the program, which is bound to entertain young and old alike. Each brings a special talent to the stage, which promises to be a night of musical memories and smiles.

The Christian Counseling Center’s professional staff provides counseling for adults, teens and children, with a focus upon the latter. A new play therapy center enhances their ability to help with a variety of problems such as abuse, loss, low self esteem, loneliness, issues at school including poor performance and bullying. Each client pays only an affordable portion of the fees, with the remainder made up from funding from the United Fund of Cumberland County, Baptist Healing Trust of Nashville, donations from churches and individuals. This concert will help to cover counseling costs for the increasing numbers of child referrals to the center.

The counseling center is in the United Fund Building, 348 Taylor St., Crossville. Their phone number is 707-8200 and their website is
