Saturday Night Special: A Benefit for NKN Speech and Debate

Submitted By: – Click to email about this post
It’s Spring, and that means it’s time for the annual Saturday Night Special Variety Show. After a two years off due to Covid, we’re excited to announce a live show this year to benefit the Neah-Kah-Nie High School Speech and Debate team. Join us at the NCRD Performing Arts Center on Saturday, April 30, for this beloved community event.

The Speech and Debate team has improved each year for the past three years, culminating in their 4th place finish for all Oregon schools in classes 4A – 1A at last weekend’s State Speech and Debate Championships. All proceeds from this year’s Variety Show will be donated to the team to help fund travel to tournaments for the 2022-2023 season.

The show features a mix of high school performers, professionals, and talented local amateurs performing song, dance, storytelling, and comedy. Students from the speech and debate team will present two of their award-winning pieces as well as perform songs from musicals. Additional acts include professional singers, local musicians, The Illusions Dance Troupe, and a few surprises. Everyone is welcome at this all-ages show.

All proceeds from the event will go to the Neah-Kah-Nie High School Speech and Debate Team.
