Teen Talents

Read and Feed is the local nonprofit selected to benefit from this weekend's Triangle's Got Talent, hosted by the Cary Teen Council. Here, Read and Feed volunteer Cindy Johanson reads with Tomasa in the organization's mobile classroom.

They sing and dance, and juggle. They’ve auditioned, and rehearsed. And now these teens are ready to do some good, on behalf of local nonprofit Read and Feed.

The Cary Teen Council presents the second annual Triangle’s Got Talent this Sunday, April 2, where 15 teen talent acts will take to the stage to benefit Read and Feed, which helps young children — tomorrow’s teens — to develop important reading skills and comprehension.

A showcase of diverse performances by teens from across Wake County, the show runs from 5 to 8 p.m. on Sunday, at The Cary Theater, 122 E. Chatham St.

Membership in the Cary Teen Council is open to those in grades six through 11, with applications accepted each year in June.

The all-volunteer council focuses on leadership and service, and has been recognized with awards including North Carolina’s Most Outstanding Council, in 2009 and 2013.

It hosts or supports a number of community service projects each year, such as Breakfast with the Bunny and the Cary Easter Egg Hunt, and Santa’s Workshop.

Tickets to Triangle’s Got Talent are $10 in advance or $12 at the door, with children aged 2 and younger admitted free.

Tickets can be purchased at The Cary Theater box office, online at etix.com, and at the door.
