12 Stars Announced for The Fifth Annual Dancing with the Williamsburg Stars Fundraiser

The fifth installment of Dancing with the Williamsburg Stars is shaping up to be bigger, brighter and more vivacious than ever. The dynamic lineup of local stars includes a distinguished doctor and devoted personal trainer, a sassy retail manager and  beloved home builder. Twelve brave business people in total have all accepted the challenge to train with a professional dancer and compete in front of a live audience and panel of judges come March 1st.

The star lineup isn’t the only thing expected to shake up the program. Anticipate refreshingly entertaining, quirky and even "holy" commentary from three judges sure to light up the night. Plus, group numbers and several secret performances are in the works for this show that now boasts nearly 50 star alumni! Production is already underway to showcase some of the sexiest salsas, fantastic foxtrots and more, all for a great cause. The event benefits Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Virginia Peninsula and Literacy for Life at the Rita Welsh Adult Learning Center.

The evening of fun and entertainment is Saturday, March 1, 2014, at 7 p.m. in Phi Beta Kappa Hall on the campus of the College of William and Mary.

“After five years we’re amazed at the continued momentum of this event. There’s still so much anticipation and interest, last year alone we raised nearly $90,000 and almost sold out a 700 seat theater. As long as our community wants us to bring it back and we earn money for the organizations – we’ll work hard to turn out a finer show each year" said Ken Johnston, event co-chair. “We’re very grateful to our committee, star and pro volunteers and look forward to another sensational evening in March.”

Tickets go on sale in January and can be purchased at the Phi Beta Kappa box office on Jamestown Road or by phone at (757) 221-2674, or online at www.wm.tix.com.
