Lee's Summit's Got Talent Is Back

June 14, 2014

Returning this summer for its fourth season, Lee’s Summit’s Got Talent will be held Friday night June 20th at 7 p.m. in the Lee’s Summit High School Performing Arts Center. Performers of all ages and talents will showcase their skills on stage for locals and visitors alike at only 15 dollars a ticket.

“There are fantastic vocalists, terrific instrumentalists and amazing dancers!” Lee’s Summit CARES director Roby Little said.

These singers, dancers, magicians, jugglers, comedians, and more will compete for the $5,000 cash prize and the Crowd Pleaser Award to be judged by a celebrity judge panel of three judges.

James Wright, a local Kansas City actor and singer who has appeared on many stages all thoughout the Greater Kansas City area will be one of the Judges, along with former judges, Lee’s Summit native Matt Lewis and award-winning choreographer Kristen Merrell.

New this year is host Michael Dragen.

“ Michael has an extensive resume as an actor in the KC metropolitan area,” Little explained.
Dragen has performed on local stages such as the New Theatre Restaurant, Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre, Coterie Theatre, Theater for Young America, Musical Theatre Heritage, American Heartland Theatre and more.

“When he is not on stage he is a proud faculty member of the band department in the Liberty School District. Michael and his wife, Lindsey, are proud founding members of the Summit Theatre Group,” Little said.

This premier talent competition is held as a fundraiser to benefit the programs of Lee’s Summit CARES, a non-profit group that works to reduce violence and substance abuse among youth to create a more healthy community for both youth and families. The programs of Lee’s Summit CARES are divided into three areas, Prevention, Parenting and Character. The group is located at ReDiscover where they work on prevention of violence and substance abuse through community awareness and education.

“The reason we chose to do a Premier Talent Competition is because it is an excellent alternative activity for youth, adults, and families to work together to entertain Lee’s Summit,” Little said.

Tickets can be purchased before the show for $15 at the local Hy-Vees and at the Cosentino’s Price Chopper at Raintree Lake. For more information on Lee’s Summit CARES check out their website at www.lscares.org.
