WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Entertainers, both young and "not quite as young," are coming together for a unique fundraiser.
Thalian Association will perform It Takes Two: Duets from the Great White Way. It's an original show created by director Mike Thompson, with music direction by Michael Lauricella.
Young performers will pair up with adult actors to sing some of the great songs of Broadway, from shows including Wicked, Gypsy, Anything Goes, Chicago, Annie, West Side Story, Annie, Sideshow and Cinderella.
"It's really fun," said 9-year-old Jadin Harris who will perform You're the Top from Anything Goes with former Thalian Association musical director Amanda Hunter. "You get the chance to meet new people and have new friends."
There will also be surprise appearances from local celebrities during the show.
