On Saturday, 200 plus performers will hit the stage of the Raritan High School for what has been a Hazlet holiday tradition for more than 25 years—the Hazlet Community Holiday Show.
“It’s a great family event that definitely brings the holiday cheer,” said Hazlet Recreation Director Karen Theer. “It’s awesome. It’s a very spirited dance performance by the Perna Dance Center students.”
Hedy Perna, of the Perna Dance Center said the concert has been a Hazlet staple for 25 years and includes great dancing and holiday cheer.
“This is the 26 year we’re doing the show. It’s a free show for the community and it’s just packed. Last year there were 1,000 people,” she said. “It’s amazing and quick and there are a lot of little bodies with a lot of great dancing.”
Perna’s students are fresh off a trip to the Magic Kingdom Park in Walt Disney World in Florida, where they were part of a television special to be shown on Christmas morning on ABC.
If you can’t make Saturday’s show, then catch the troupe again on Thursday, Dec. 19, at the Monmouth Mall, when the groups performs at 7 p.m.
The show will be held Saturday, at 1:30 p.m. at the Raritan High School, 419 Middle Road, Hazlet. Admission is free, and seating is open. Sponsored by the Hazlet Recreation Commission.
