The lights dimmed as the curtain lifted. The Patrick Henry Talent show was about to begin. It was time to see the talents of my fellow students.
This year, the announcers were seniors Grace Black, Jacob Otterman and the unforgettable comedian Austin Lowman. The show took place in early December, during school hours.
The talent ranged from dancing to singing to instrument-playing. Some made me sad, and some made me laugh until I cried.
My favorite act was junior Isaac Anderson’s version of a song from Walt Disney Pictures’ “The Lion King,” “The Circle of Life.” Anderson dressed up as Lion and had a pride rock set up on stage. The audience erupted in laughter as he bent down to allow audience members shake his “paw.”
I always have a great time at the talent show, especially when new talent comes in each year. It gives students a sense of who they are. I think some students may have a good chance of making a living in show business if they keep working on their talents.
