“Razzle Dazzle, ASC’s biennial variety show fundraiser, benefits its Youth Theatre Program while shining a light on talent from around Southeast Arkansas,” according to a news release. “This year, many talented volunteers from the community will take on some of music’s most well known and beloved songs to bring us ‘Simply The Best’.”
This year’s show is dedicated in memory of longtime ASC supporter Adam B. Robinson Jr. and is sponsored by Simmons Bank, according to the release.
“This time-honored production has a way of bringing the community together, like no other,” said Razzle Dazzle director Matt Soto. “Our performers are some of the most talented individuals around and they understand what it means to volunteer and give of their time, to do one thing and that is to entertain you!”
The 2019 production marks Soto’s sixth Razzle Dazzle to lead and his 13th to participate in overall.
Accompanying Soto are musical director Faron Wilson, choreographer Tana Soto Cook and stage manager Cindy Coleman England.
