Behind the Curtain: Talent Show displays unique student skills

The talent show was at the Performing Arts Center on Sept. 14 at 7:30 p.m. Several students came to the show to cheer on their friends. 

“I went to the talent show so I could support one of my best friends and watch all the talent in Broken Arrow,“ junior Taylor Raney said.

There were some unique talents this year. The talent show had singing, dancing, bands, guitars, ukuleles, pianos and beatboxing.

“I sang Adele’s ‘Turning Tables’ at the talent show,” senior Roxy Blish said. “I decided to try out because I have stage fright, and this seemed like a start to getting over my fear.”

Students were able to vote for the fan favorite. There were jars that had the performers names on them and people dropped a dollar into your favorite performer’s jar. The performer that had the most money in their jar, which was senior Daniel Stout, won fan favorite. 

“I got to bond with the other performers and the theatre kids hosting it,” senior Haven Reynolds said. “It was also really cool to perform for people who don’t always get to hear me sing.”

The drama department put on the talent show this year, and all of the money raised from the show went to the drama department.

“My favorite part of the talent show is how it’s hosted by the theatre production class, because they add in little skits and make it even more fun for the audience,” Reynolds said.
