We should also mention our MC in the James Moore Theatre for the evening, the Express‘s very own Sam Levin.

Sam has some experience on the stage himself, but for this event, he’ll be introducing the performers and running the front of the house. Treat him nice; he’s a cutie!

Jessica Laventhal from the Express will be backstage this year, keeping the dance troupes on schedule… which will be especially fun with the 33 Bollywood dancers!
