Across the Universe, the annual Lake Forest High School talent show sponsored by the Association of Parents and Teachers (APT) will open at 4:30 p.m. March 6 in the Raymond Moore Auditorium.
After the premier matinee, three more performances will be held at 7 p.m. March 7, 8 and 9.
Started in the 1960’s by the parents of the late Chanel 2 sportscaster Tim Weigel, the annual production was intended to be a fundraiser for the APT. In recent years, the show has raised more than $25,000.00 for the organization.
The money raised enhances educational opportunities for all Lake Forest High School students, according to information on the school’s website.
Auditions were held earlier this month and the performer were selected by a panel of judges from across the Chicago area. A number of former participants now earn their living in the performing arts, according to the website.
