Tiger Talent Show

The Mansfield High School Class of 2018 is hosting a Tiger Talent Show on May 8th for students from both MHS and MHS feeder schools. They envision an evening of enjoyable entertainment hosted by our local community’s talented children. The Class of 2018 recognizes that many students study in and after school to improve their skills in music, voice, art, language, dance, martial arts, and more. The Class of 2018 is providing a stage and audience for these students in hopes that they will be able to share their talents while creating positive and lasting memories. Also, by getting on the High School stage now, the Class of 2018 hopes that the younger students will have the opportunity to build their confidence in sharing their talents with an audience.

This event is a first, and they anticipate a successful outcome. If necessary, we will limit the number of participating students, or groups of students, to twenty spots with a maximum of four minutes per performance. They will be able to provide a piano, but all other props necessary for the performance must be provided by the performer(s). (Set up will be included in the four-minute performance). Admission will be $5.00 per person and all proceeds will go to the Mansfield High School Class of 2018 to help with senior class events like Prom and the Senior Field Trip. If your child is interested in participating, please contact Ms. June at constancejune@misdmail.org.
