Kingsport’s ShowTime 2017 Centennial “Spirit of Kingsport”
January 10, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$8
From 1988 – 2010 Kingsport’s ShowTime captivated audiences with high-energy, fun-filled, musical-variety performances. This year, Kingsport’s ShowTime will return to the Toy F Reid Auditorium stage to present special “Spirit of Kingsport” Centennial Performances on July 7, 8, & 9.
The performances will highlight the history of Kingsport through ten decades of song and dance featuring popular music, exciting Broadway hits, time-honored country music favorites, traditional gospel medleys, inspirational contemporary praise hymns, fast-paced rock and roll, and spirited patriotic tunes.
ShowTime is a unique family-oriented musical/dance entertainment presentation performed by a local community cast of 120 adults, teens, and children. Each ShowTime performance is an original theme-styled production produced by founder, Louise Bailey Dickson, a Kingsport native, and co-directed with Clark Parker, vocal director and musical arranger. The master of ceremonies will be Josh Smith, WJHL television anchor.
The cast and crew represents the “Spirit of Kingsport” through volunteerism and community pride by sharing their time and talent to provide fun family entertainment for our enthusiastic audiences. Kingsport’s “ShowTime 2017 Centennial” event is sponsored by Eastman Chemical Company and Food City Stores.
