Running Springs Talent Show
March 1, 2019
Calling all Running Springs talent! We are looking for dancers, singers, performers, comedians, actors, and musicians to show off your skills at our upcoming talent show. Winter break is the perfect time to work on your acts.
Talent Show Applications will be accepted online starting at 9:00AM on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 through Thursday, January 17, 2019 at 9:00PM. All students are welcome to submit their applications online during this period. No late applications will be accepted.
The following information will be required to fill out the online application form:
* All performer’s names, grade levels and teachers
* Song Request: Song Approvals are NOT final until they have been reviewed at auditions.
* Type of performance (i.e., dance, singing, playing an instrument, skit, etc.)
* Title of the act
* Parent’s contact phone number and email address (Parent signing up a group will be the group’s one main contact)
Due to the large number of acts, submissions are accepted on a first come first served basis, which will occur based on the dated and time-stamped online submission. Once your application is submitted, you will be contacted via email with a confirmation of your song request and act and a link to sign up for your audition time.
No duplicate music will be allowed. Once again, this will be determined based on the submission date and time of the application.
Mandatory Talent Show Auditions will be held Tuesday, January 22nd through Thursday, January 24th.
All participants in the Talent Show must have their parent or guardian fill out, print and sign the Permission Slip and Commitment Form. Please bring this form to your audition. At least one parent per act will be required to attend the auditions and all rehearsals. (Please do not send your students alone!)
One parent PER PERFORMER must sign up for at least ONE HOUR of volunteering. A Volunteer Spot link will be sent out after sign-ups for parents to choose how they’d like to volunteer.
This is a school event. Therefore, all OUSD school dress codes apply (excluding current uniform policy). Dance attire shorts, bare mid-drifts or clothing with inappropriate or vulgar writing will not be allowed.
Music choices must be kid-friendly! Songs with inappropriate lyrics, non kid-friendly music videos or other controversial items will not be allowed. Please choose wisely and consider “Kid Bop” versions also.
