The Canton Palace Theatre presents it’s third annual Lip Sync Showdown, featuring contestants from Leadership Stark County! Watch as leaders from Stark County compete in this FUNdraiser, performing songs from a variety of styles and genres. The winner will be chosen through monetary “votes” for the contestants, which means the audience chooses the winner. Join us for a fun evening at the Palace!
Seven classes have graduated since this vivacious group of women met at Leadership orientation and now seven years later, they still remain close friends! These ladies of the 26th Class pride themselves on being the most fun, the most closely connected after graduating, and are unapologetic about being the oldest members of their class. They are Cathy Wyatt, Kathy Feichter, Lucia Pileggi, Margaret DeLillo-Storey, Kimberly Bricker, and Teresa Fedorchak. The combined age of these lip-syncing divas is 346!
A diverse group, they are business owners, health and education administrators, a counselor and a banker, but the one thing they share is the common bond they’ve formed over the years, along with a fondness of delicious food and lively conversation. They see this not only as an opportunity to help support a local treasure in the Palace Theatre, but also as an irresistible reason to hop on stage and unleash some middle-aged attitude! The group’s motto is “Our age is merely the number of years the world has been enjoying us!!”
The Leadership Bellas
The Leadership Bellas are so excited to support the Palace with our singing and dancing talent! Here is our group and why we joined the Bellas –
Leisyl Boone (Interior designer and Stitch Fix stylist) – I secretly want to be a Diva.
Michelle Cordova (Stark County Chief Prosecuting Attorney) – It will improve my singing skills.
Brook Harless (Plain Township Trustee and retired army) – To embarrass my kids!
Pam Lung (CFO at Child & Adolescent Behavioral Health) – I left public accounting to become a Star.
Patience Moody-Rush (Coordinator of Data Compliance at the ESC of NE Ohio/Connect Info Tech Center) – I’m tired of following the rules.
