“A Night at Disney” Talent Show 2016

Gwin Oaks will have its annual Talent Show on Thursday, February 11, 2016 at 6:00 PM. This year’s Talent Show has a theme of “A Night at Disney.” Talent Show acts with a Disney theme (Disney characters, Star Wars, Marvel, etc.) are encouraged, but using the theme is not a requirement. Students will need to audition for the Talent Show on Tuesday, January 26 or Wednesday, January 27. Information about auditions will be sent home in Friday folders on Friday, January 15. Individual students, groups of students or families, classes, and staff members are invited to audition for our evening of fun. All Gwin Oaks students (K-5) are invited to participate. Even if you don’t audition, be sure to come and be a part of the audience to support those who will be performing their talents. Remember my rules: no fire, no pets or live animals, and all lyrics have to be appropriate for school. On the evening of the Talent Show, donations will be accepted in order to raise money for the Gwin Oaks Family Legacy Resource Center. Stay tuned for more information!
