The PC Players of Polk County High School are seeking local talent to add to the USO entertainment program to be held on Saturday, October 16 at 7:30 p.m.

The show, a tribute to the USO, will be held as a fundraiser to help defray the costs of drama students traveling to Washington, D.C., in early November.&bsp; The players are seeking brass players, a pianist, a juggler, and a barbershop quarter to round out the already scheduled evenings entertainment.

The first half of the evening will provide a variety of diversions in the schools auditorium.&bsp; Singers, comedians, tap and ballroom dancers, a short radio-show, and even Abbot Costello, Brother Lee Love, Brother Brooks, Brother Clarence and Brother Forte from the Saint Bernards monastery will be joining in the fun. A multi-media presentation recapping the impact of the USO over the years will close the first act.

The second half of the evening will be held in the makeshift USO Canteen in the schools cafeteria. Light refreshments will be provided and a DJ will spin those 40s tunes for those wishing to warm up the dance floor.

If interested in playing or for ticket information, contact Donna Everett at the high school, 828-894-2525 extension 261.
