Brevard Little Theatre (BLT) will present its 12th annual "Dancing With Our Stars" (DWOS) on Saturday, March 23, at 7 p.m. at 55 E. Jordan St. This event is an annual fundraiser for BLT with the money going towards the cost of operating a nonprofit community theatre.

"While Brevard Little Theatre's stage is no stranger to talent, as evidenced by its top-notch shows and equally top-notch actors and actresses, its floor beneath the stage lacks similar appeal. Until, that is, its once-a-year transformation into a dance floor, inviting dance enthusiasts to cut a rug at the theatre's annual fundraiser, "Dancing With Our Stars," said Bethany Rundell.

At 7 p.m. there is a 2-minute exhibition dance. Then, the audience has the opportunity to dance to the tunes of DJ Phil Nolan until the competition starts at 8 p.m.

The competition includes six couple dances and one individual, performing about two minutes each. The following people have dedicated their time and talent to this year's show: Ruth Lentz and Ed Skrivanek, Sheryl Fortune and Jason Barnes, Jim Dagelin and Mark Henry, Courtney and Shaun Mason, Janet and Tom Leazenby, Kathryn and Ed Isaacs, and Sarabeth Stretcher.

The competition ends with another two-minute exhibition.

Janet and Tom Leazanby will do the West Coast Swing in fusion with the Foxtrot.

After each couple performs their dance, the audience votes for their favorites with dollar bills, with each dollar counting as one vote. The winning couple or individual is the one that raises the most money. The audience has an opportunity to dance both before and after the competition.

BLT wishes to thank the sponsors for this event: Brevard College, Food Matters, Ingles, KTCHN, Oskar Blues, Zaxbys, and Frank and Nita Porter.

Individual tickets are $10 each, or you can purchase a table of eight for $80. Advance tickets can also be purchased at BLT on Friday, March 22, from 10 a.m. until noon or at the theatre the night of the event.

A complimentary food and a cash bar will be available. Doors open at 6:30 with the competition beginning at 8 p.m. For more information, call BLT at (828) 884-2587 and leave a message, or visit
