The Newington Children’s Theatre Company is thrilled to present their first one-act of 2018. Nine year old, Caitlyn Carbone, and twelve year old, Holly Cushing join the cast of The Great American Talent Show, performing March 2 at 7pm and March 3 at 2pm.
From renowned playwright Joseph Robinette, here’s a great parody of American Idol, America’s Got Talent, and all TV talent shows. It’s the final night of the yearlong TV talent show to end all talent shows. The finalists anxiously await their final shot at fame and fortune.
Three self-important judges – including the token brutally honest Brit character – cajole or praise each contestant in hilarious ways. Who will win the tournament of champions?
Caitlyn and Holly are joined by ten area youth, ages 8-15, to bring this hilarious parody off the page to the NCTC stage for two performances only! Run time is 45 minutes. All tickets are $10. Performances will take place at NCTC, located at 743 North Mountain Road in Newington. For tickets, or more info, call 860.666.NCTC or visit www.NCTCArts.org.
