Megorden and Cocktail Party Get Carrollton Arts Center Season Off to Spirited Start

The Carrollton Center for the Arts will launch its 2020-21 performance season, August 29, with a concert by Carrollton native Shawm Megorden and a cocktail party.

Megorden teaches young dancers at the Center for the Arts, acts with the Carroll County Community Theatre and performs professionally as an actress, singer and dancer in Atlanta and across the Southeast. Her first concert in the Danny Mabry Theatre will feature her smooth, jazzy vocal style.

“I was taken by surprise when I heard Shawn Megorden perform this past fall,” Arts Superintendent Tim Chapman said. “At our facility, we know her as the sweet dance instructor that does great with our
youngest dancers. I had no idea the charisma and talent she possesses as a performer. All this time, she has been under our radar, but it is time for her Carrollton debut.”

For an additional price, patrons, 21 and older, can attend a pre-show cocktail party, which will include
hors d’ouevres, spirits and fellowship. Final bids in a silent auction benefiting the center’s Youth
Scholarship Program will be taken at the cocktail party. The auction features five packages: Private Paint in Party for Six, Culinary Art Master Class with Chef LaToya, Private Movie Night in the Theater, Holiday Decorating Package with Greg Hendrix and acupressure/Tuina sessions at Healing Hands.

Tickets for the concert are $15 Adults/ $10 Youth (12 & under). The cocktail party will cost $20 per
person. To check out the silent auction packages and bid on them, go to
