Brentwood Students Take Center Stage At Talent Show

English|Español|Polski

An empty stage awaits, while two emcees, having finished their first introduction, stand offside. An entire school watches quietly and expectantly as the first act walks up to the stage.

On Thursday, April 7, the Brentwood Bears bravely showed their heart, their camaraderie, and most definitely their performance ability at their school’s annual talent show.

“We are very proud of our learners and their bravery in demonstrating their talents before the entire school, family members and friends,” said Dr. Mike Merritt, the school’s principal.

Over 41 acts, made up of 70 students, auditioned to be in this year’s show, and the panel of judges had a difficult decision in narrowing it down to the final 19 acts. Two talent show performances were given, one for the students and staff during the day and a second in the evening for families to attend.

A wide variety of acts were performed, including solo and duet singing, different forms of solo and partner dance, piano, guitar and violin performances, a yo-yo routine, a student playing the ukulele while blindfolded, and solving a Rubik’s cube while being timed, among others.

The emcees played the student audience by singing off-key and pretending they couldn’t dance, one of the highlights of the event. This good-natured ruse was shown to be a trick when the entire 5th grade class, including the “talentless” emcees, did a dance together at the end of the show to the cheers and applause of their classmates.

Two of the acts were selected to represent Brentwood at the D59’s Got Talent Show on Saturday, April 16.
