Performances set for Saturday, Nov. 9, at Leach Theatre
America's got talent and so does Rolla. That talent will be on display at the Leach Theatre this Saturday, Nov. 9, at 7 p.m. for a fundraiser for the Newburg Elementary School's Buddy Pack program.
Buddy Packs are backpacks filled with kid-friendly, nutritious food that students take home over the weekend or holiday periods to supplement their meals when there is not enough for them to eat at home.
After the weekend, the children bring their empty Buddy Pack back to school to be refilled by local volunteers. The program continues week after week throughout the school year or as needed.
According to Eva Seibert of the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri and organizer of Rolla's Got Talent, the evening will include bands, singers, a harmonica player and a magician.
"I really think it will be a wonderful show," said Siebert.
Celebrity judge and guest performer for the event will be Neal E. Boyd, season 3 winner of NBC's "America's Got Talent."
A pre-event reception at the Havener Center will be held from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. where a meet and greet with all other VIP judges, contestants and Boyd will take place.
Tickets are $10 and available at the Leach Theatre box office.
