Talent Show raises money and Entertains
For the last several weeks, the walls of WHS have been decorated by signs announcing the upcoming talent show.
The talent show, organized by Student Government, will be performed April 28. According to Student Government vice president Mimi Wiles, the show will feature roughly 20 acts.
A variety of talent will be performing in the show. Wiles mentioned several more unusual acts including magic, ukuleles and tap dancing.
Chelsey Porter, English Dept. member and adviser of student government, said students can expect may talented singers and two original songs.
In between the acts are opportunities for audience participation. Wiles said there will be contests, including a dance-off, and trivia between acts, especially between those who take longer to set up.
There will be no faculty acts. According to Porter, “There was some debate on whether or not to include faculty acts,” however, the show was deemed too long to incorporate them.
Auditions for the show were held earlier this month, however, the planning process began earlier.
Porter said the talent show is student government’s traditional fundraiser, so it has been expected since the beginning of the year. A committee of Student Government members held and judged the auditions. The show itself will be judged by staff April Wackerly, custodian, Miriam Stokes, Spanish Dept., and Lisa Lang, work-study coordinator.
Wiles said the show is expected to last one to one and a half hours. The cost of entry is $5.
