Raiders Got Talent!
Attention Columbia Raiders, K-12!
The PTO is VERY excited to host our first talent show - Raiders Got Talent!! Brush off those tap shoes, practice that concerto, and get ready for a super fun night full of talent and laughs! Auditions will be held in December, but please keep this criteria in mind.
*All acts will be accepted, unless not school appropriate *Acts must be under 3 minutes long *Performers may only be in 2 acts. If you are in a group act, that counts as 1. *Groups must be less than 5 students. Any group over 5 must be approved by the Talent Show Board. *All music will need to be submitted for approval (lyrics) prior to auditions *You MUST fill out a participation sheet in order to audition - these are available in the office. *All musical acts must submit their music in either a .mp3 or a CD labeled with the act name and student name. These will NOT be returned. *Costumes are up to the performer. The PTO will NOT supply costumes. All costumes must be school appropriate. They will need to be reviewed by the Talent Show Board prior to the show. *There will be one rehearsal, date TBD (will be in January). *There will be prizes for top act in Copopa, CMS, and CHS... plus some other surprises!
The talent show will be held on Saturday, February 1, 2020 in the CHS gym. All are welcome to attend, and more information will be sent home at a later date.
