Tari Vance performed in the Broadway Musical “Dream with Music,” May 18 through June 10, 1944.
From the 1942 Mar-Ken Primary & Junior High School Yearbook:
•In the eighth grade Last Will & Testament: Tari Vance wills her quietness to Ralph Freeto.
•Class Ambitions: Tari never says a word so we do not know her real ambition.
•Famous Sayin’: Tari … “Do you want to know the answer?” (As someone leans over her in school) “I hate school.”
•Class Predictions: Tari … She has such a lovely speaking voice she will be an announcer. What worries us is…..Tari never speaks.
From the October 13, 1942 Mar-Ken Journal:
Many of Mar-Ken’s students are on the road – Tari Vance, from the ninth grade has been on the road for a long time, as a dancer. Right now she is in Chicago.
