CDEKid's Talent Showcase And Behind The Closed Door Cabaret Are Saturday

Thursday, August 24, 2017

The CDEKid's Talent Showcase Lunch and Behind the Closed Door Cabaret will both be held on Saturday. 

The CDEKids Talent Showcase Lunch begins with seating at noon, lunch at 12:30 p.m. with the show at 1 p.m.  Behind the Closed Door Cabaret Dinner begins at 7 p.m. with the show at 7:30 p.m.  Both will be held at The Archway on Glass; 2523 Glass St. 

The CDEKids Talent Showcase Lunch features a three-course luncheon provided by Elegant Moments Catering, followed by a talent showcase the first of its kind.  Performers from the CDEKids troupe will perform original numbers, favorite tunes, and any other talents they want to share with the world.  

Behind the Closed Door Cabaret is a little different this time as it is not for the whole family this time.  This will be an evening of entertainment that's "powerful, tantalizing, and pushes the boundaries of CDE's limits," said officials.  Dinner will be a plated meal befitting a hideaway club in old Paris or New York, and there will be a cash bar. 

Tickets for the CDEKids Talent Showcase Lunch are $22 and available here.  Tickets for Behind the Closed Door Cabaret are $28 and available here

The Boss, Claude Ramsey

I try not to overuse the word great, but we lost a great man today, Claude Ramsey. I had the pleasure of serving under him as director of Commercial and Industrial Properties for 14 years while he was the Hamilton County Assessor of Property. He was probably the smartest person I have ever known. He was tough but patient, kind, caring and compassionate. He knew how to get ... (click for more)
