EBS Talent Showcase (ex EBS Idol)

The 14th Annual Talent Showcase! Friday, April 17th, 2020 @ 6:00pm

We are excited to announce the 14th annual EBS Talent Showcase! Under a new name and with some welcome changes, we’re ready to go for the 2020 Show that has drawn sell-out crowds for years. Consider singing, dancing, telling a good joke, or whatever your “talent” has to offer. All acts and ages are welcome!


Important Changes for 2020
 

  • New Name “EBS Talent Showcase”

  • New email address: ebstalentshowcase@gmail.com

  • Signups & Tryouts will be done primarily ONLINE. (Alternative “paper” signups will be made available to each classroom / teacher)

  • Due to the growing popularity of the show, we must limit the number of acts to fit within the time we have allotted for actual performances. The number of acts will depend on how many Solo vs. Group acts we have try-out. Therefore, some acts *may* not make the cut.

Dates for 2020

  • 2/24-3/6 - Tryout Sign-ups (Online)

  • 3/9 - Song & Lyrics DUE (See below)

  • 3/17-3/19 - Tryouts @ MPR

  • 3/16 - Tickets go on Sale

  • 4/16 - Dress Rehearsal @ MPR **MANDATORY**

  • 4/17 - Showtime! @ MPR

Tryouts

  • Every act must “Tryout.” The purpose of the tryout is to ensure your act follows the rules and that you’re able and ready to perform. Due to the number of slots and time constraints, not every act is guaranteed to make it into the show.

  • Tryouts are held @ EBS MPR

  • Tryout Dates & Times

    • Tues, Mar 17, 2020 from 3:30-5:00pm

    • Wed, Mar 18, 2020 from 3:30-5:00pm 

    • Thur, Mar 19, 2020 from 1:00-2:30pm (right after half-day)

Rules

 

  • All performers must be currently enrolled at EBS.

  • All acts must be family friendly.

  • A child may be in one (1) solo act and one (1) group act, but cannot be in more than one (1) solo act. A child can be in more than one group as long as the group is not made up entirely of other solo performers.

  • Time Limits must be adhered to and will be strictly enforced due to the overall length of the show and the number of acts.

    • Solo acts must be NO longer than ONE (1) minute

    • Group acts must be NO longer than TWO (2) minutes.

  • NEW 2020*** Due to the growing popularity of the show, we must limit the number of acts to fit within the time we have allotted for actual performances. The number of acts will depend on how many Solo vs. Group acts we have try-out. Therefore, some acts *may* not make the cut.

  • You MUST supply your own music/song edited down to 1 or 2 minutes. The song file (mp3, wav or mp4) & lyrics must be sent to ebstalentshowcase@gmail.com by March 9th. 

  • All acts must attend mandatory dress rehearsal on Thursday, April 16, 2020 from 3:00pm-6:00pm

  • We photograph and videotape much, if not all, of the show, including some of the rehearsal. By allowing your child to perform in the show, you grant EBS and the AFP permission to publish photographs and videos taken during these events on the school’s and AFP’s websites and social media pages, in the school yearbook, etc. We will do our best to accommodate individual requests, but this cannot be guaranteed.

Calling all Volunteers!

We need parent volunteers to help put on the show: curtain, backstage, decorations, Say room, ticket sales, concessions sales, show and audience seating assistance, (student) runners, etc. 

All volunteers, if you can help - please send note to ebstalentshowcase@gmail.com
