There’s No Business Like Show Business
The Lovejoy K-6 Talent Show was held February 15, in the Lovejoy High School auditorium. The talent show was a fundraiser put on by the Lovejoy High School Junior class. Proceeds will be put towards decreasing the price of the individual tickets for prom which will be held at the Dallas Aquarium. Junior Student Council Class President, Evie McGowan, explained that the talent show has multiple goals, “The goal of the event is to create a sustainable fundraiser for the Junior Class Councils to execute each year. However, we also wanted a fundraiser that would benefit the Lovejoy community. The talent show is a great way to allow our younger students to have the chance to perform on a bigger stage, creating special memories for the parents, performers, volunteers, and audience members.” The cost for single acts to perform was $25, and group acts were $50.
There were eight acts in the show. Students from Hart, Lovejoy and Puster Elementary as well as from Sloan Creek Intermediate showcased their talents. The performers sang, danced, bounced basketballs, wore wigs, played the piano, sighed, wiped sweaty palms and laughed.
Regarding the participation, McGowan said, “Having never put on the event before, we didn’t yet know what to expect. However, we were happy to have a more intimate show this year, and are looking forward to see the event grow in the years to come.”
