Douglas’ annual Talent Shows are organized by music teacher Peter Broggi and Douglas parents/volunteers to showcase the varied talents of our students. Students are encouraged to be as creative as possible in demonstrating their talents. Here are the rules for performances:
- Talents must be school appropriate. Remember that you will be performing for kindergarteners.
- Performances must be safe.
- Talent Show performances need to be limited to 2 minutes or one song, whichever is shorter. Time limit will be strictly enforced by Mr. Broggi.
- Dances must be choreographed, not improvised.
- Singing must be live–no lip-syncs–and singers must provide their own accompaniment music without the lyrics.
- In some cases, Mr. Broggi may be able to accompany performance on the piano or guitar. Please ask in advance.
Signups will be done online. If students are performing in a group, the group only needs to submit one form. Rather than having separate permission slips for each talent show, your permission is granted by filling in a box in the signup form.
Mr. Broggi will have a Talent Week about a week before each Talent Show, which will act as a dress rehearsal for the Talent Show. Students wishing to perform should be prepared to share their talents during their regular music classes during Talent Week.
If you have a K-2 Talent Show performer and you wish for their K-2/ 5-6 sibling to attend, we are asking for your permission for them to be taken out of class as they will be missing lessons. Please complete a permission slip (a separate form for each K-2/ 5-6 sibling), and return to the school office by 10am on Friday, May 26. (A permission slip will also be sent home via backpack mail.)
