DUNCAN — Music and impersonations are nothing new to the Duncan Little Theatre stage.

At 7 p.m. Saturday, the stage will feature a variety of both during the “We’ve Got Talent” show.

This year, 21 amateur entertainers will perform in the Simmons Center Theatre.

The talent show is a fundraiser for Duncan Little Theatre, a non-profit organization supported by grants from the Oklahoma Arts Council and the Simmons Center Foundation. Ticket sales to various productions also determine the success of the DLT season. The productions include the upcoming show “Always Patsy Cline,” which is set for June 12 through June 14 at the First Baptist Church Chapel.

“We’ve got such great talent,” Gina Flesher, DLT board president, said. “We’ve got singing, dancing, impersonations.”

In addition to the featured talents, this year will also have three judges choosing their favorites from the event. The judges are Duncan Mayor Gene Brown, former KSWO anchorwoman Jan Stratton and Winifred Bailey, the music minister for First United Methodist Church.

At the end of the show, a winner will be chosen by the judges.

“You do not want to miss it,” Flesher said.

No tickets will be sold in advance. Instead, tickets will be sold at the box office the night of the  show. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for youths and free for children 6 and under.
