Lowry’s Got Talent

Can you juggle, do magic tricks, sing, jump rope, play an instrument? Then why not audition for the Lowry Talent Show? We also need student announcers, stage crew, and script writers for the Talent Show.   

Auditions will be during lunch the week of October 7. If you are interested in auditioning please come to the auditorium before you have lunch on your assigned day. You will be given a pass for your audition.

The Lowry Talent Show will be limited to 20 acts. Acts will be judged on originality, creativity, talent, and preparedness.  All acts must be G rated and appropriate for an audience of ECE-fifth graders. All acts must be 2 minutes or less. Absolutely no lip-synching will be considered.

Unfortunately, not everyone who auditions will be asked to be in the Talent Show. We are really proud of everyone who auditions because that takes a lot of courage but it takes more than courage to be selected. Only those acts that demonstrate they are polished, creative, entertaining and unique through their audition will be chosen. All students who audition will get a letter to tell them if they made the show or not.

If you are chosen for the Talent Show you must be able to make the rehearsal on October 29 from 3:00-4:30. The Talent Show will be Thursday, October 31 at 8:45 and 10:15.
