Riverhead, Long Island, NY (October 14, 2014) — The ever popular vocalist Jen Kane will be making a special appearance during Riverhead’s Edgar Allan Poe Festival in celebration of Halloween. Jen will perform in a children’s concert titled Little Monster Costume Party on Saturday, November 1st at 6 PM at the Vail Leavitt Music Hall on Peconic Avenue in Riverhead. Ms. Kane has done live music theater and countless performances for children’s theatre from Manhattan to Long Island’s East End that have thrilled children and their families.

Her powerful alto voice has graced stages in leading roles as Eva Peron in Evita, Anita in West Side Story, a run in Smokey Joe’s CafĂ©, and Why Oh Why Can’t I, an original Judy Garland musical, a two-year stint in Swing! as Ann, and again in a lead role as Esther in Meet Me In St. Louis.

“Doing shows for children are special for me,” says Jen Kane. “Interacting with the kids and sending them home with smiles and warm memories are a delight. I help their imaginations run wild. The Vail Leavitt show will be fun for everyone. I am honored to be part of it.”

Activities taking place during the Edgar Allan Poe Festival weekend sponsored by the Town of Riverhead and the Riverhead Business Improvement District include: a Main Street Riverhead Halloween Parade on October 31 at 7 PM, trick-or-treating at various downtown businesses on Halloween, readings by numerous Long Island authors, various street skits, street musicians, and impromptu performances and surprises at downtown venues. Edgar Allan Poe’s works as well as spooky Halloween themes will be central to all of the events.

“We are delighted to have Jen Kane in the lineup,”says Ray Pickersgill, president of the Riverhead BID. “Her appearance adds yet another professional flair to the festival.”

The Vail-Leavitt Music Hall is a National Historic Landmark that was built in 1881 and modeled after the Ford Theater in Washington, DC. Also appearing in the evening’s music presentation before Ms. Kane is Grammy Award nominee children’s performer Brady Rymer. Fireworks follow the concert outside the theater.
