Repertory Dance Theatre's signature event and FUNdraiser, Charette, returns to the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center for the eighth consecutive year on February 9, 2013 all new twists and turns.

Bring your Valentine to a night of delectable refreshments, raucous bidding & bribing, and witty choreography hosted by KUED's Ken Verdoia. Audience members are encouraged to "bribe" celebrity judges to vote for their favorite choreographer, bid on "collectibles" from RDT's circle of friends, and watch as five new dances are created in record time! And NEW this year - to add to the secret ingredients, choreographers will get to work with live music.

Also new this year is the VIP ticket. For $75, Charette VIPs will receive priority seating, FREE drinks throughout intermission, and $15 in RDT Funny Money.

How Charette works:

Audience goes immediately to the theatre for introductions to the choreographers and a short performance.
Choreographers are given "secret ingredients" that they must use in each composition.
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.
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 "bribe" the judges to vote for their favorite choreographer with RDT Funny Money. Audience members can also bid on Silent Auction items - collectibles from RDT's circle of friends.
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 2013!

The Key Players:

Judges

Doug Fabrizio & Alice Storm
The host of Radio West and his wife join the panel of judges for the first time. Hopefully Fabrizio's experience interviewing legends such as Madeline Albright and Desmond Tutu will prepare him well for the judging ranks of Charette!

Charles Lynn Frost
Known mostly for his alter ego, Sister Dottie S. Dixon, Frost joins the panel as his fabulous self. His many years on the stage (named Outstanding Performing Artist of 2011) give him the perfect expertise for the Charette audience.

Janet Gray
The local studio owner returns for her eighth year as our veteran panelist. Janet knows the ins and outs of Charette and isn't afraid to tell it like it is!
