 Young Harris College to Present Annual Valentine’s Day Cabaret

YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. – Young Harris College’s Alpha Psi Omega National Theatre Honor Society will present the fifth annual “Unlucky in Love” Valentine’s Day Cabaret fundraiser on Wednesday, Feb. 14, at 7 p.m. in Suber Banquet Hall in the Rollins Campus Center on the YHC Campus. Admission is $12 a ticket, or $20 per couple.

This event features talented students performing a variety of short musical and dramatic bits related to the themes of love and heartbreak.

“I have been a part of the Valentine’s Day Cabaret for the past three years,” said junior theatre major Bakari Garvin, of Atlanta, Ga., who will serve as the Master of Ceremonies alongside the show’s director. “The special thing about the Cabaret is that all of the numbers are chosen by the performers, so everyone has a special tie to their performance because it is theirs instead of auditioning and then being told what to do!”

The performance will include a wide range of numbers from a variety of Broadway musicals like “Chicago,” “Sunset Boulevard,” and “The Addams Family,” as well as covers from artists like Adele and Ed Sheeran.

“The best thing about being a part of the Valentine’s Day Cabaret is being able to perform anything as long as it relates to the theme ‘Unlucky in Love’,” said senior musical theatre major Kristin Talley, of Lawrenceville, Ga.  “This year, I am going to be performing a dance tribute to my grandmother who passed away in October of 2017. It is sure to be a great show and I can’t wait to see how the turn out will be this year!” 

All donations collected will benefit the Division of Fine Arts and help fund students’ travel expenses for conferences, competitions, and auditions.
