To our students of St. Peter School — Do you have a special talent that you would like to showcase? Are you a singer, dancer, writer or great at playing an instrument? Have you ever wowed your friends with a magic trick or flashy move? We are looking for you!!

St. Peter School will be hosting a talent show on May 12th and is in search of fantastic acts. Tryouts will be held on May 1st from 3:00 – 4:30 in the gym. If we have a surplus of acts, it is possible we may need to hold tryouts on Tuesday, May 2nd as well.  Sign-up sheets are in your classrooms. Please have your act signed up by April 24th so we have an idea of how many will be attending try outs. If your act is chosen for the talent show you will be expected to attend the dress rehearsal on May 11th from 3:00 – 4:30 in the gym. We hope to see you there!   Remember: All acts and costumes must be appropriate, no lip-syncing and you are only allowed to be in one act.
