All performers and attendees of this event must be fully vaccinated.

Performers ages 12-20s will have the amazing opportunity to show off their talents at the historic Triad Theatre in NYC on Monday, November 1 in an effort to raise money for The American Childhood Cancer Organization (ACCO). Sadly, some ACANY alumni are currently struggling to fight this insidious disease, and as an organization we strongly identify with ACCO’s mission to offer community support to those affected by Childhood Cancer.

Our Variety Show will be the first of two events in collaboration with ACCO and alumna Molly Oldham (2x brain cancer warrior)

Unlike previous ACANY Cabarets that only featured singers, we are going to switch up our fall fundraiser!

Standup? Tap-dancer? Singer/Songwriter? Magician? Dog act? Spoken Word Poet? Well…maybe no dog acts- but we want to see what special talents you bring to the table! Of course, singers are still welcome!

Tickets for the performance are $55 (general admission) plus a 2 drink minimum. All performers are required to purchase 4 tickets.

Each performer will have a 45 minute zoom rehearsal with our Director to prepare! On the night of the show, singers can elect to perform with a backing track or without live accompaniment. If you would like to perform with an accompanist, or if you would prefer an in-person rehearsal over a zoom rehearsal, there will be an additional cost.

Spots are first come, first serve!

Ages: 12-20s
When: Monday, November 1
Time: 7 PM Showtime; Call time is 4 PM
Where: The Triad – 158 W. 72nd St.
