Stars hiding in plain sight to shine soon

After a hiatus, Stars in the Grove is back to entertain and raise funds


On Saturday, Feb. 22, local residents will have the chance to see familiar faces reveal hidden talents.

“Stars in the Grove,” a talent show open to Forest Grove and Cornelius residents, is back.

Pacific University will host the event in the Taylor-Meade Performing Arts Center with the organizational support of the Forest Grove Chamber of Commerce and the Forest Grove Public Arts Commission.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for students and seniors. Proceeds will be a fundraiser for the Forest Grove Public Arts Commission’s commissioned artwork for the Forest Grove Library.

There will be several locals singing their hearts out solo: Riley Reynolds, Rebecca Yakos, Bonnie Thomas and Elizabeth Ann Maisel.

Sarah Hampton and Alisa Hampton will sing and play the piano together while Dusti Arab and Noah Stolley will do a duet. Michael Fields, Jeanne Mayta and Janet Munkres, who form a gospel group from the First Christian Church, will also perform.

Robert Maughan will bring distinctive musical sound with his beat boxing.

Youngsters will also brave the stage with their instruments — 5-year old Andrea Richardson will play the violin and 7-year-old Caleb Richardson the piano.

Pacific University student Felicity Dyall will play the harp.

And of course, the dancers — Reagan Petersen, Stephanie Cadd and Paige Coppedge will dance as a group; Haley New will be dancing solo; Tommie Ann Draper and Olivia Martorana will dance together as will Alaina MiKinnon and Viviana Bruno.

A group from Forest Grove High School will perform a section of the Pirates of Penzance, which opens soon at FGHS.

Last but not least, Holly Robison will captivate audiences with her storytelling.
