Mount Airy students, staff show talent


March 21, 1997|By Christy Kruhm | Christy Kruhm,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

MOUNT AIRY Middle School will showcase its abundance of student talent during the third annual talent show at 7 p.m. today at the school, 102 Watersville Road.

For weeks, students have been hard at work fine-tuning their acts. Singers, dancers, rock bands, actors, comedians, and a martial arts student will take to the stage.

The show features 29 student acts, as well as a surprise act by several teachers.

Proceeds from the show, sponsored by the Parent Teacher Student Organization, will benefit a local needy family.

Admission is $2 per person and $1 for Mount Airy Middle School students.

After two very successful past talent shows, committee chairwomen and PTSO President Patty Hillmuth again is chairing the show. Production assistants are students Sarah Stansfield and Christie Beran.

Performing master of ceremony duties for the evening are students Cheryl Williams, Billy Hillmuth and Danielle Clokey.

Opening the show on a musical note is Stephanie Smith, followed by the Mission Impossible dancers, Jennifer Graham, Jennifer Klem and Alicia Ritgert.

Nurish, a student rock band, will perform original music.

Band members are Stephen Conner, Billy Hillmuth and Kyle Langham.

Russell Furr and Daniel Haight and their band Intersanctum will rock the audience with guitar and drum music.

A grand finale will close the show.

Performing a hand jive dance, the cast and crew will assemble to bid farewell to the audience. Graduating eighth-grade cast members will offer their goodbyes to the school.

Hillmuth gives credit to student and parent volunteers for their hours of hard work.

Hillmuth is seeking a volunteer to chair the talent show committee next school year.

Without the help of a parent, this student talent show will not be able to continue.
