Talent Show Sign Ups are LIVE!
Do you sing, dance, tell jokes, do magic tricks, practice martial arts, do gymnastics, play an instrument or act? We would love to see it!
We are excited to announce that we will be hosting our annual talent show on January 24 at 7pm. Doors open at 6:30pm. Sign up below!
Acts will be limited to 2 minutes and must be family friendly. Sign ups will be limited to the first 20 acts. There will be a mandatory rehearsal at 6:30pm on Thursday January 24 (you don’t need to stay the whole time and if you can’t be there right at 6:30pm, just let us know).
This is a very low-key, supportive atmosphere. There are no prizes, judges or pressure to be perfect. Come and have fun!
If you have any questions, please contact Michelle Howes at [email protected]

When all 20 spots are filled, we will close down the sign ups. If you can still sign up, consider yourself “in”. There are no “try outs”.
