GENEVA — In the month of April Geneva High School is overflowing with talent. In fact, on April 23 at 7 p.m., GHS students will be presenting their very own talent show. Countless acts will perform for all who wish to attend. Advance tickets are $3 and tickets at the door will be $5.
Michelle Mather, who has organized the talent show for the past six years, said that every year is different but on average there are eight to 15 acts. Students will be receiving information on the talent show today. Students will then create a video and submit it to be evaluated before the decision is made whether or not they may participate.
After submitting a small entry fee, the students will then be ready to perform for their fellow students and everyone else who comes to the show. Abby Williams is hoping to showcase her vocals in this year’s show. “I am looking forward to being a part of a show that is always very popular in our school,” she said.
The talent show is not the only way for GHS students to perform for their peers and community members. A Night of One Acts will be presented April 26 in the school auditorium. The plays will begin at 7 p.m. and all tickets are $5.
Senior Nicole Brunsman, who will be participating in the plays, said, “I think they are going to be very comical and amusing. We still work very hard but One Acts are a great time, it is fun and relaxed. People should definitely come out; they are in for a hoot.”
The first of the three One Acts is “Check Please,” by Jonathan Rand. This play follows a series of blind dinner dates that could not get any worse — until they do. Dating partners include a raging kleptomaniac, grandma’s bridge partner, a mime and many other strange people.
