Join us for the 30th anniversary of the Ollie McDonald Senior Talent Showcase...Where Stars Are Born!
The showcase will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 14 and Sunday, April 15, at the Sturges Center for the Fine Arts, 789 North “E” Street.
This event is an artistic, fun-filled stage production with the ages of the performers ranging from 50 years of age and better. Seniors volunteer their time and talent to honor the memory of local legend Mr. Ollie McDonald who loved to sing and perform.
Ollie McDonald was gifted with a magnificent tenor voice. Although he never gained fame or fortune from his gift, he volunteered his talent to many events, brightening the lives of those who heard him sing. He shared his talent by singing the “Star Spangled Banner” at Special Olympics, performing at the San Bernardino Fifth Street Senior Center Fashion Show Extravaganza, participating in the National Very Special Arts Fair, volunteering at the City Cultural Center, and helping people in general.
General admission for this event is $8 per adult and $5 for ages 5 to 12 years old. Tickets are available now! Come and enjoy an afternoon of live music with the entire family. For ticket information, call 909-384-5430 or 909-384-5436.
