Do you have a fun or unusual skill you’d like to show off? Take the stage and wow the audience with dancing, magic tricks, and jokes. No talent is too big or too small, so come show off how well you can sing opera or how fast you can tie your shoelaces. Our panel of judges will award their favorite acts at the end of the show!
