On May 1, Michigan City's fourth annual talent show took place in the high school's auditorium. We are one of the schools to have this unique opportunity to see our peers' special talents and performances. It's also a way to get students to spark up new interests.
Students show their skills, talents, hobbies and other activities here and, not only are they showing their skills, but they are in it for the contest. Standing in front of a big crowd singing, acting, dancing, etc., is hard for most students. Having a talent show is a way for students to boost their self-esteem and their confidence.
Allen Murray demonstrated karate exhibition while dancing to "Kung Fu Fighting" by Carl Douglas. This was one of the more diverse talents we had performed this year.
Also, Miranda Mahaffey did a contemporary dance to "Medicine" by Daughter. The dance portrayed a girl under the influence which really moved her audience and made them think about the damage drugs can do to your life.
The performances were all absolutely amazing and the judges were stunned with each new act they saw. It is really amazing that Thespian Society puts everything together. They make the all the skits, all the jokes, slide shows for everyone to see, put together props and wardrobe and also rehearsed many times before the final show.
Once again, the talent show was a success and people around city love to come every year to see the new talents and see what students bring to the stage. It is great seeing your friends show their love for something on stage and actually see how talented many of the students are here at MCHS.
