Repertory Dance Theatre to Host CHARETTE 2014 FUNdraiser, 2/22

Related: RDT, Charette 2014, Repertory Dance Theatre

Repertory Dance Theatre's signature event and FUNdraiser, Charette, returns to the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center for the ninth consecutive year on February 22, 2014, hosted by the formidable (and hilarious) Sister Dottie S. Dixon.

Sister Dottie will bring an all new look to this fabulous evening of delectable refreshments, raucous bidding & bribing, and witty choreography. Audience members are encouraged to vote for their favorite choreographer by "bribing" celebrity judges with RDT funny money, test their luck in the opportunity drawings, and watch as five new dances are created in record time! In addition to the "secret ingredients," choreographers will get to work with live music.

How Charette works:

  1. Audience goes immediately to the theatre for introductions to the choreographers and a short performance.
  2. Choreographers are given "secret ingredients" that they must use in each composition.
  3. RDT's professional dancers and gifted community dancers are divided between the choreographers then sent to one of the 5 studios to create their work.
  4. Charette guests (the audience) eat, drink, and merrily wander between the party and the studios where dance is being created. During this time guests are encouraged to vote for their favorite choreographer and "bribe" the judges with RDT Funny Money. Audience members can also enter opportunity drawings to win valuable prizes and fun packages.
  5. After an hour everyone returns to the theatre to see the competition, vote for their favorite, and see who wins the title of RDT's "Iron Choreographer" for 2014!

THE KEY PLAYERS:

Sister Dottie S. Dixon
Known throughout the city for her Theater Productions, her radio spots on X96, and her continuing advocacy for tolerance, Sister Dottie brings a whole new level of awesome to the evening. Mrs. Dixon will host the event from beginning to end with endless flair and hilarity. In her words, "Eeew fer fun!"

Judges:

Bill Allred
As a radio personality on X96's Radio From Hell morning show (and Charette judge in 2009) as well as a trained actor, Allred has the perfect expertise to find this year's Iron Choreographer.
