This is probably the result of child- hood trauma that was caused by being made to sit in front of a small televi- sion screen in the company of my parents in Chicago, and suffer through the weekly Ted Mack Original Amateur Hour. So, on September 23rd, it was with more than a little astonishment and a good deal of uneasiness that I found myself at the Horace Mann school on Charleville awaiting the launch of what was billed as the First Beverly Hills Talent ExtravaganZa. The Talent Extravaganza is the brainchild of Gloria Jennings and her Beverly Hills Community Theatre buddy, Lou Milkowski. Not only did the two come up with the idea, but they then managed to convince an impressive array of locals to either act as judges or take on production chores for what turned out to be a truly delightful evening. In all, twen- ty-six acts were distilled from some 90 hopefuls eager to display their per- SHOT "A gOLD DFr.bff" 5UNSEI"- & C_..AHUP_..NGA forming skills at the Ron Brown Auditorium. Even taking into consideration the size of the community's talent pool, the show proved to be a wonderful surprise. The steady stream of singers, dancers, novelty acts and a couple of dramatic readings demon- strated once again that when it comes to performing talent, this community has an embarrassment of riches. Congratulations to all the participants and worker bees. The Talent Extravaganza deserves to become a Beverly Hills tradition.
