Our first show was Saturday, November 5th, 2016 at the beautiful Wealthy Theatre. Thank you to everyone who attended, to make our debut a success!
This production helped us raise money for Hearts of Hope, a local dog rescue group. The tribute number for Hearts of Hope involved the entire cast singing to the tune of "So Long, Farewell" from Sound of Music, but the words were re-written to give information about Hearts of Hope and what they do. The cast passed stuffed animal dogs from hand to hand as they sang. If you would like to contact Hearts of Hope dog rescue, click here: Hearts of Hope
Our second show was Saturday, March 4, 2017, again at the Wealthy Theatre. All of our shows will be done at the Wealthy Theatre; it's the perfect place to perform! Our ticket sales were up 10% from the first show. Our goal is to someday have a sold out house! Thank you to everyone that attended; you were a wonderful audience.
This performance helped us raise money for Carol's Ferals, a local cat rescue group. This show featured a tribute act to Carol's Ferals, showing the actions of a feral cat, and even involved a large trap to cart off the actress portraying the feral cat!

Our third show was on Saturday, July 15, 2017. We are experimenting with what months work best for our audiences. Summer was a fun time to try; we like to try to mix it up and try different times of years, but we hope we made your summer even hotter by putting on this show for you! Thank you to everyone that attended; we had such a great time and the audience is the reason!!!
Summer Sizzle benefited LuvnPupz, a local rescue group that specializes in special needs animals, "bully breeds", and hard to place animals. This group is well recognized in the community and we were glad we were able to work with them. Our tribute act helped educate the public about the misconceptions about pit bulls. The owner of LuvnPupz, Carrie Shipala, is a true angel for the animals.

Our fourth show, on January 13, 2018, Frozen Frolics, was our best attended show so far. 298 seats were filled in the audience, and we tried a 50/50 raffle to raise money for Harbor Humane Society. The raffle was a rousing success, and will return for future shows! We have also had luck selling merchandise out in the lobby, and online on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/JattengVintage. Harbor Humane helped us out as well by having 25 representatives of their group in the audience to cheer us on. Thank you to everyone for being a super fun crowd!!!!
Harbor Humane Society is the only animal shelter in Ottawa County. Some of our current and past performers have volunteered there, or are good friends with Jennifer Seif-Aulgur who is in charge of Harbor Humane. The tribute act was to the tune of Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, and featured Sweet Vidalia, the Vintage Vixens, and four special guest animals from Harbor Humane! This event brought in $650 for Harbor Humane, our largest amount so far. To learn more about Harbor Humane, click here: Harbor Humane Society
Our fifth show, Harvest Hullabaloo, featured some new performers, like a salsa dancing group, and some new singers, that decided they would like to be in all of our shows from now on! We are always excited about adding new talent to our shows. We were touched during the raffle giveaway when the recipient gave his earnings back to the animal rescue group instead of keeping it himself. What a nice guy!
The animal rescue group that was sponsored was Crash's Landing. The song was to the tune of "Summer Nights" from the musical Grease. Dr. Jen and her staff at Crash's Landing enjoyed the tribute so much that they invited us to their annual fundraiser in November to perform the act at the benefit. We had a great time! We were able to raise $500 for Crash's Landing and Sid's Sanctuary. If you'd like to learn more about Crash's Landing and Sid's Sanctuary, please click here: Crash's Landing and Sid's Sanctuary. A commercial was written for this group too, to the tune of "Ice, Ice, Baby" to entice people to donate bottles and cans, for the proceeds to go to benefit Crash's Landing. That was a successful venture, so we have decided to collect bottles and cans as an ongoing project, to raise money for each animal rescue group that we sponsor.
