The Harlem Superstars comedy basketball team is set to return to the Bath Middle School on Thursday, March 10th at 6:30pm. We have a lot of exciting surprises for the community at this year’s game! Last year was a sell out and we unfortunately had to turn away a lot of people at the door so make sure you get your tickets early this year! The Harlem Superstars put on an amazing display of basketball showmanship, with slam dunks, trick shots, unique comedy, basketball tricks, dancing and crowd interaction that you will not want to miss. The Superstars will provide an extremely entertaining family show that fans of all ages will enjoy. We are keeping the ticket prices very low this year so that everyone can enjoy the show. At $7.00 per ticket (presale) and only $8.00 at the door, I have personally made sure that the ticket prices are affordable for most anyone in the community to have the opportunity to see our show.
Our game will feature the 7’2 Ricky Lopes, (featured on David Letterman, Conan O’brien and Law and Order) one of the most gifted natural comedians on the planet, Chris ”Super Chicken” Turnquist, and Kevin “Showboat” Jackson. We are also featuring a star studded ’Bath Dream Team’ led by, 2010 gold medalist from the USA karate team, Ed “The Hitman” Hall, (full roster to be announced soon). The Harlem Superstars’ show is a family show that does so much more than just entertain. They visit all of the area school, the day of the game to reach each student with a positive message. During the game they invite every kid in attendance come onto the court and dance with the team, and they do not leave the gym until every single fan has a chance to get an autograph, picture, or a high five. All proceeds from this game will go to benefit ‘Teens of America’ an organization that is helping young people all over the country in a very unique way, addressing issues that our young people struggle with on a daily basis. Teens of America works with young people to form peer groups and make pledges to avoid negative influences. They talk to young people about what is possible if they work hard to achieve their dreams and goals in life. They educate young people about issues like bullying/cyber bullying, peer pressure, teen suicide, texting and driving, safe social networking etc. I will be working with Teens of America to bring their programs and extensive follow up programs to Maine schools, I couldn’t be any more excited than I am to come onboard their team. This game will be a launch pad of sorts to provide T.O.A. with the resources to be able to bring this amazing, cutting edge program to Maine. We will be reaching out to members of our community over the next few weeks to support our efforts to make this charity basketball game a huge success!
I’ll see you at the game! ~Jason “White Shadow” Gibbons
