CKTZ Offers Multiple Opportunities For Onstage Performers

Ever dream about being a pop star? Are you a better dancer than Michael Jackson? Would you like to sing like Chris Brown, Janis Joplin or the Bee Gees? Singers; dancers; lip sync artists; musicians; Now is your chance! This year CKTZ offers multiple opportunities for onstage performers. Opportunities For Onstage Performers We’ve put together twenty shows over the past decade and are still selling out the Manson’s Hall. (On August 18, we will once again be partnering with Quadra Theatre for Quadra’s Third Annual Lip Sync!)  CKTZ is partnering with Theatre Quadra for the third to bring Lip Syncs to Quadra Island!) This year’s Cortes Winter Lip Sync is on Saturday, February 24th, 2018. (Summer Lip Sync is August 25th.) Performers: your public is waiting, it is time to start developing the acts you will unveil this year.  There will be a rehearsal at the hall on Feb 23, 4-6pm. Twenty-one acts performed at last year’s Cabaret. The event was sold out long before the doors opened. It was so successful that CKTZ decided to hold the Spring 2018 Cabaret for two consecutive nights. Performances will be held at Manson’s Hall on Friday, April 13th & Saturday, 14th. We ask that acts perform in both shows, so that we can keep technical nightmares under control. There will be separate rehearsals for musicians and lip sync acts. Keep in touch, so we can keep you informed.  Please Let Us Know Please let us know if you are planning an act. (I’ll sleep better) Thanks!

Cortes-Quadra Lip Sync in the Gumboot 13th June 2016 - BILLETS for the LIP-SYNC! “Theatre Quadra is excited about joining forces with Cortes Radio in mounting a lip-sync extravaganza this summer, on stage at the QCC. The show will raise funds to keep Cortes Radio on the air! Along with our home grown Quadra talent, TQ will host a handful of Cortes Island’s best and brightest lip-sync performers for the spectacle on Saturday, August 6. To accomplish this inter-island collaboration, we are looking for overnight accommodations for a couple of dozen Cortes performers. Their travelling troupe will overnight on Saturday, August 6, while some of the participants will spend Friday night as well. TQ will organize a potluck get-together for our visitors on Friday evening and a wrap party on Saturday, following the show. If a few additional sustaining meals could be offered to your guests in this hands-across-the-water initiative, it would be a wonderful gesture to our Cortes Island compatriots. Please let us know how you can help, as soon as possible. Reply to: Allen Perkins: dunnjudy@hotmail.com / 250-285-2302 or Trudi Richter: trspirit@gmail.com / 250-285-2008.
