Talent Show Sign-Ups
Student Performers Needed - paper sign-up sheets will be posted at the school Nov 25. We all know Tennyson students LOVE to perform and have loads of talent ...
- Each student is limited to one individual and one group performance (due to time constraints, this will be strictly enforced)
- Recorded music will be faded-out after 3 minutes - if you are singing along with a piece, plan a stopping point at 3 minutes
- Acts must be rehearsed - improvised dancing will be saved for the "Dance Party" songs that are open to everyone
- Sign-up is first-come-first-served and usually fills up early. Sorry, no late entries (schedule to keep to!)
