County youth ‘ROC’ the Regent stage

Up-and-coming talent Ryland James, 17, of Deseronto opened the show and gathered the cast onstage.

More than 100 youth and their talent coaches took the stage at the Regent Theatre Thursday night to present the fourth annual ROC’n Revue.

The event is a celebration of the Recreation Outreach Centre (ROC)’s programs and a showcase of youth talent, supported and coached by professionals in the community.

The community coaches are pared with youth talent for a few months of rehearsals, then perform on stage with them. Coaches included Emily Fennell, Astrid Young, Megan Hutton, Andrew McLuhan, Chris Loane, Ben Vandergaast, Hiliary Fennell, Sam Hirst, Kim Inch, Peter Berg, Caleb Hutton, Rudolf Heijdens, Jeremy Kelly, Peter Rea, Chris Bonham-Carter and Rhonda Nolan.

Students from the entrepreneurship class at PECI assisted with event promotions and fundraising. PECI’s Improv Team also performed with the County’s Taste That Improv! group.
