Thalian Association Community Theatre hosts a benefit concert called "It Takes Two, Take Two: Songs From the Silver Screen." It features great music from the movies, performed by adult and youth pairs in a wonderful collaboration.

Mike was today's guest, along with dancer and Youth Host Kegan Dubar; a junior at New Hanover County High School.
