Young Grand Valley singers are being invited to compete for the chance to perform on stage at the Avalon Theatre.

Imagine your child or grandchild performing on the Avalon Theatre stage. What a proud moment that would be for you -- and a memory of a lifetime for them. Here's how it could happen.

The EPYC 2017 Contest invites kids ages 5-18 to submit a recording of their best broadway-themed song or dance. The winners in four age categories will get to perform their song on stage at the Avalon Theatre on April 8. Emailed entries should be submitted by February to office@wscchildren.org

The Western Slope Center for Children is hosting their third annual fundraiser on April 8 - a broadway-style show put on by High Desert Opera called "Broadway on Main." The EPYC Contest winners will open the show.

The Western Slope Center for Children is one of the really great organizations in Mesa County devoted to the welfare of abused children. Specifically, the center provides services to child sexual abuse victims and their families.
