How do you get into the Talent Show?
Come to the auditions prepared!  We will provide a chair or stool, microphone, piano, ability to play MP3 from a phone or other device, and a CD player.  Anything else needs to be provided by the student.

Important things to know… The Talent Show Coordinator, Shawna Fritzler, will coordinate auditions.  Please make sure acts are appropriate, showcase your talent, audition-ready/prepared and fall within the 3 minute maximum. *Singers should have a “karaoke” (no vocals\accompaniment only) version of their songs if they are singing with a CD. Songs with inappropriate language or mature themes will not be allowed. Students may audition for multiple acts and group acts.  We encourage group acts so many students’ talents are showcased.  Also important to the show are students who are willing to work backstage (lights, sound, curtain)

Student act preparation and practice should be done at home prior to the audition.  The above rehearsals are not for perfecting the individual acts, but for putting together the “show” as an ensemble.  Any questions?  Please contact Talent Show Coordinator Shawna Fritzler at 303-432-8202 or fritzlersm@aol.com. Include any timing issues for rehearsals or auditions in your email.
