Monterey showcases best of performing arts

The Best of the Best set for March 14 and 15 at Monterey Recreation Centre

Pat Chung and Doreen Dupuis man the box office at Monterey Recreation Centre for the upcoming Best of the Best show that will feature myriad arts clubs and classes at the centre.

With a faltering Note-Able roster, the Monterey singing group decided early on this year would be different.

The club opted to perform a series of small concerts this season and for the usual spring finale, still offer a big show, but add some other talents.

“We have fewer members in Note-Ables and we’ve been doing more frequent shows,” said Pat Chung. “There’s always been a theatre weekend and we thought it would be good to have other groups, give them a chance to strut their stuff.”

So they invited their peers and created The Best of the Best set for March 14 and 15 at Monterey Recreation Centre.

“This is the performing arts within the centre,” Chung said.

The first half features Monterey Chorus, Hula Dance for Heatlh, Monterey Players and Scottish Country Dancers. The second half will showcase the Ukelele Club, tap dancers and Note-Ables.

Each club prepares its own segment so the show will even surprise organizer Chung. The theme, however, is the same as the title, The Best of the Best.

“That allows them to do what they do really well,” Chung said.

The Best of the Best is March 14 and 15, get tickets ahead of time at 1441 Monterey Ave.
