- This is an elementary school talent show. Please keep in mind the participants will range from age 5 – 11. Music must be age appropriate, use good judgment when selecting an act (and while many current songs do not have the most age appropriate lyrics, there are plenty of songs out there that do).
- Costumes must meet school dress code requirements. If an exception needs to be made (especially in the dance routines), the costume must be pre-approved by the Talent Show committee.
- All students must attend try-outs and rehearsals. These are mandatory
- While we appreciate parent help, the rehearsals will be closed to parents and friends unless they wish to join the Talent Show committee and help put on the event.
- This is not a professional performance but an elementary school talent show, it is an opportunity for all students to gain confidence and performance skills
- We will strive to include as many acts as possible, however, if there are too many acts, then acts well be selected based on originality, preparation, and variety. We ask all students to be creative. For example if multiple students try-out to sing the same song students may be asked to change their song choice.
- The Talent Committee reserves the right to have final say on music, performance, and attire.
- All singers will sing to instrumental versions of their songs.
- Songs will need to be edited to 1:30 in length for solos and 2:00 for duo and groups.
