Vaudevillian entertainer Izzi Tooinsky and a host of young local talent will perform a kids variety show, “Kids Cabaret,” Saturday and again on Nov. 7, both at 1 p.m. at Nevada Theatre, 401 Broad St., Nevada City..

Tooinsky, who has 30 years performance experience, is the mastermind and producer of Kids Cabaret, which features young entertainers (ages 6 to 17) from Nevada County.

“It is a magical experience to watch a young person step out on a stage for the very first time and show an audience what they love or are passionate about,” says Tooinsky.

Performers include Gillian Lewis on piano, singer-songwriter Kyle Ledson, guitarist Daisy Kerr, stand-up comedian Tim Wilson, Lily Neiser on piano, dancer Amelia Arellanes, bluegrass musician D’jango Ruckrich, fiddler Jasmine Ruckrich,

D’jango and Daisy are also performing as a bluegrass duet and EZ PZ Jugglers featuring Zed Freidman and Parker Chow.

Tooinsky, equal parts juggler, clown, comedian, storyteller and educator, is the author of two books and creator of seven storytelling CDs.

Over the years, Tooinsky has performed for thousands of local Nevada County students at hundreds of school assemblies.

In that time, he has seen firsthand how the performing arts can help instill self-confidence, commitment, community awareness and responsibility — values important to helping students build their character.

Kids Cabaret is not a show just for kids; it is suitable for all ages.

Kids Cabaret is part of the Nevada City Live concert series presented by Paul Emery this fall at the 150-year-old Nevada Theatre.
