Welcome to the 2017-2018 Talent Showcase!
We are very excited to be hosting Mary Silveira's 8th annual Talent showcase this year! More than anything this is an opportunity for students to share personal skills and/or interests, develop leadership and collaboration skills, and just have a good time in front of families and students. Below is a general time line we follow though this may fluctuate based on changing schedules.
Showcase Time line
12/18 - Principal Meets Interested Students: Each year the principal meets with students at recess to share logistics of the program. Student attendance does not mean a commitment to performing in the show nor do students have to attend this meeting. It is simply an informational opportunity. At that time, audition forms will be made available for students to take home. Forms must be signed by parents and returned by due date to be considered. This year the due date is 1/12/2018.
1/12 - Talent Showcase forms due: They are due to the front office by the end of the day. They must be signed by a guardian.
1/18 - Talent Showcase Auditions: Students with serious interest in performing are mandated to attend this audition, which is managed by a parent team along with the principal. Students should have a pretty clear idea about their plan and be ready to share a portion of their performance. If music is needed, students need to bring with them. Major props nor costumes are needed at this time. Performances should be limited to roughly 2 minutes. This is a non lip synching event. Our team will provide feedback in terms of music choice, presentation, ideas, etc. This to help enhance each student and or team performance. Parents are expected to attend or arrange for transportation of students for this audition. Stay tuned for where the audition will take place.
2/15 - Talent Showcase Check-in: This practice is for performers that our team feels may need additional support. This may be related to music choice, performing teams, props, costume ideas, etc.
3/6 - Talent Showcase Dress Rehearsal: This is a mandated event for all performers to attend as it will be our only chance to get everyone together, practice transitions, get a feel for the stage, understand seating arrangements, review expectations, etc.
3/8 - Talent Showcase Event: This year's event takes place on Thursday, March 8th, 2018 and will be held in our Multi-Purpose Room. Starting time will be shared in the parent news letter as we inch closer to the performance date.
3/9 - Talent Showcase Assembly #1: Friday morning assembly for our students to perform for their peers and parents. 8:30-9:30am showing in our MPR
3/12 - Talent Showcase Assembly #2: This special Monday morning assembly is for the 2nd half of our performing team to perform for their peers and parents. 8:30-9:30am.
