Give it up for the Singing Anchors

Since the theatre is still in the growing stages, Kelly said it's just getting into the grant cycle. For now, it's mostly buoyed by community donations and fundraisers, like a very successful Barnes and Noble fundraiser where kids do a preview of the most current show and golf outings that draw large crowds.

The Jan. 8 cabaret fundraiser will cap off a busy performance year for Zahn. Aside from her various singing and theatre events throughout the year, she recently decided to try her hand at a different type of entertainment"standup comedy.

"I'm loving it; it really is like being on tightrope over Niagara Falls," said Zahn, who took a class through the Knowledge Network that led to professional gigs. "I've always wanted to try this. I performed at Tess' Lark Tavern, which was exciting but the audience was tough. I learned to deal with a tough audience which is something that you can encounter with this type of performing."

Whether or not Zahn could spin her latest talent into a potential future fundraiser for the Saratoga Children's Theatre is yet unknown, but she said she will continue to support a cause and organization that is important to her and the community.

"If it's important to you, you make time for it," she said.

Doors open at 7: 30 p.m. and the show kicks off at 8 p.m. All seats are $25 and tickets are still available by calling 580-1782.
