Lakeland’s 8th Annual Talent Show


Announcing Lakeland’s 8th Annual Talent Show!!!

Show us your talent! Talent forms can be found/turned in by Mrs. Keller’s door and are due by April 29th. Due to the overwhelming success we have each year, we’d like to have more group talent, and less individual performances, if possible. If you have a talent that you, AND YOUR group, are very excited about, sign up together!

 Talent Show Expectations:

  • Family event: keep performances “G-rated”
  • Be kind during rehearsals: no voices, no running, and sit quietly while awaiting your turn to rehearse
  • Acts must be 3-4 minutes—no exceptions
  • NOTE: If you are singing, provide the CDs and words along with your permission form so we can preview them for the “G-rating”; these are due with the permission form by April 29th, so that we have time to get back to you with the approval of the song as soon as possible.
  • No vocals on CD’s-no lip sync; instrumental accompaniment only
  • Piano accompaniment is available and highly recommended, but you must provide sheet music; some musical support is available, upon request.
  • Have a ride here to pick you up at 4:20 on “try-out” and “rehearsal” nights
  • DURING THE PERFORMANCE: All performers will sit together, as a group, before AND after their performance.

Important Dates to Remember! ! !

  • Try-outs for individual talents (In the Music Room)
    • 3:20 pm on Monday, May 4th
  • Dress Rehearsal
    • 3:20-5:00 pm on Monday, May 11th
  • School Assembly
    • Thursday, May 14th: 2:15-3:10
  • Evening Performance
    • Thursday, May 14th 6:15
    • Performers may show up at 6:00. No earlier, please
