High schoolers and teachers to perform
Once again, the talented teens of Haldane High School will take to the stage for the enjoyment of all in the annual talent show, which takes place on Friday, April 24, at 7 p.m.
Entries include a gypsy jazz trio; the Haldane debut of rock band Dragon Attack; an interpretive dance to the hit song “Radioactive”; a Bob Fosse Damn Yankees dance number; and family acts in the form of a father-daughter vocal duo and a three-sister singing act.
Returning favorites include a yo-yo master and a performance of a traditional Native American hoop dance. As always, there will be quite a few vocal performances, in styles ranging from singer-songwriter to Broadway. In addition, there will be a swing-dance piece choreographed by Katie Bissinger, and the always highly anticipated dance by a local crew, better known as members of the Haldane teaching staff, trying to out-do their showstoppers of previous years.
The whole community is invited to the talent show. Elementary and middle school students are welcome to cheer on their babysitters, kids they saw in the school musical or on school teams. This year’s show, called That’s Entertainment, is put together by Haldane music teacher Deb Contini, who is retiring this year, with the assistance of Stacy Labriola, who just produced the recent parent version of the show, Haldane’s Got Talent, at the Towne Crier.
Tickets will be available at the door and cost $5 for children, students and senior citizens; $10 for adults.
