Last year, I attended the Dana Middle School Talent Show and had so much fun I’m going to go again this Friday.
I know what you are thinking: a talent show is a talent show is a talent show.
But somehow, because the students hadn’t done a talent show in years, the enthusiasm deliciously spilled over into the crowd and when one vocalist had a tough time singing, the students in the audience chimed in to help her over the blip in her chart. The show is free.
“We now have approximately 30 student acts: singers, dancers, comedy skit, monologue, student band, school band and cheerleaders,” said Kim Blanks, the event organizer.
Some school staff members are daringly brave and are expected to sing too.
The show begins at 6:00 p.m. The PTO will be selling hotdogs, sodas, chips, prior to the show beginning at 5:00. Raffle tickets will be sold to for $1 each or 6 for $5. Some of the prizes are: handmade rugs, Disneyland tickets for two plus parking pass, two Six Flags Magic Mountain tickets, gift certificates to Babouch, Chicago for Ribs and two Spirit Cruise tickets.
PTO members will also sell DVD's of the production for $5. So this Friday – if you want to see it all from humor to dancing, take a jog over to one of your local school’s. Dana is located at 1501 S. Cabrillo Avenue. For more information, call Kim Blanks at the school: (310) 241-1100 and leave a message with the Main Office
