It’s Time To Get Your Act Together…

We are so excited for your child to participate in this year’s talent show. Please assist your child in choosing an act that will allow them to SHINE. Play an instrument, sing, dance, hula hoop, read a poem, or….? Each performance must be no more than TWO minutes long and include elementary-school appropriate (“G-rated”) material. Musical (piano or Dad band) accompaniment and help with song choice is available–just let Trevor know.

Be sure to read guidelines and dates below! Reach out to chairs Sarah Durand, Laura Jumani and Trevor Murphy with questions at talentshow@towpta.org.

“Auditions” will be held Monday, Nov 27 and Tuesday, Nov 28. Please reserve one spot for your group or solo act.

Talent Show 2018 is Thursday, Jan 25!

Children performing in the show must be supervised by a responsible adult during all practices. Bus service is not available on practice days, as they fall outside of our regular after-school class schedule.

Mixed age groups may choose either Monday or Wednesday practices, see schedule below. If your child cannot attend practice on their scheduled day, let us know and we’ll try to be flexible.

All music MUST be turned in at Practice #1. Your act does NOT need to be polished…yet.

Talent Show Guidelines

As in past years, there are a few rules we have to abide by for the talent show:

  • Each student may only be in 1 ACT (in addition to Honors chorus and 5th grade ensemble/MC roles)
  • Each act is 2 MINUTES or less. No more than 2 minutes, this is to keep it fair and fluent.
  • NO LIP SYNCHING – if you are singing there can be NO LYRICS, not even quiet ones. We want your talent, not someone else’s!
  • No bad language or innuendo – choose your song carefully, whether you are singing or dancing to it.
  • No inappropriate dancing.
  • No animals allowed in the act.
  • No inappropriate costumes.
  • No toy weapons of any kind to be used in acts.
  • First come first serve. We cannot have duplicated acts! We often have people or groups who want to perform to the same song, or want to sing the same song. The act that signs up online first with the name of the song will get to perform that song. We will contact you if you do not get your first choice of song.
  • DEADLINE FOR ONLINE SIGN UPS IS FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17TH. NO ACTS WILL BE CONSIDERED AFTER THIS DATE.
