MLS Talent Show -- February 8, 2019

Mark your calendar for the PTO-sponsored MLS Talent Show on Friday, February 8, 2019, at 6:00 pm, on the gymnasium stage.  All are welcome, and admission is free!  

If your child is interested in performing in the show, please note the following:

Preview sessions will be held Wednesday 1/23, Thursday 1/24 from 3:30-5:30.  

Please CLICK HERE to choose a time slot for your child.  Students should bring their music, props, costumes, etc. and be rehearsed and ready!

Our intention is that every student who has thoughtfully prepared an act will be a part of the show.  We ask for your participation in this process: please help your child refine his/her act, ensuring that it is well planned, less than 2.5 minutes in duration, appropriate for a school audience.

  • Each MLS student can be in only ONE act.

  • Acts must be entirely ready at the time of the audition.

  • Acts are strictly limited to no more than 2.5 minutes in duration.  The rule of the stage is always to "leave them wanting more;" encourage your child to have a neat and tidy start and ending point.  Sometimes shorter is sweeter!

Tech rehearsals will be scheduled for the week prior to the show.  Your child will need to attend at least one of the sessions, and ideally will come to both. The rehearsals will be on Sunday 2/3 4-7p and/or Wednesday 2/6 4-7p.

On the night of the show, your child will need to be at MLS at 5:15 pm. Dinner will be provided for performers.

Is your budding performer ready to sign up?  Please click HERE for the audition form, and be sure that your child brings it on audition day!

PARENTS: We know we will have some amazing acts in the works for the talent show.  Now we are searching for talent amongst the parents….Please take a look at this Signup Genius and sign up if there is an area in which you might be able to help!  It takes an army and we are SO thankful for all of you who have already volunteered your time.
