Devinny Talent Show

Event Overview

6:30pm on Friday, February 9 at Dunstan Middle School
The show is free, open to the public and made possible by the Devinny PTA!

This is our FOURTH annual event showcasing K–6th graders who have earned their opportunity to perform by successfully completing a competitive audition process.


Song, dance, instrumental music, comedy skits and variety acts are all welcome! Past shows have also included unique things like fancy jump roping, martial art routines, upside down piano playing and synchronized swimming.


Devinny students of all grades are encouraged to sign up for an audition time after school in the music room. Audition times will be in five minute increments scheduled via Sign Up Genius for each date between 3:40 and 6:00 PM. Auditions are being held on the following dates:

            • Tuesday, January 16th from 3:40 to 5:30 pm
            • Wednesday, January 17th from 3:40 to 5:30 pm
            • Thursday, January 18th from 3:40 to 5:30 pm

Auditions must be "performance ready" and no longer than 2 minutes and 45 seconds. Audition tips: 

            1. Smile and look at your audience (friendly judges) with enthusiasm!
            2. Have all lyrics or lines to a skit memorized.
            3. Wear your performance outfit to the audition.
            4. Practice, practice, practice!

Audition slots are also available for a child to try out for being this year's Emcee (show host). More details are included in the audition download below.

Once auditions are held, the kids that are chosen to move forward are required to attend ALL of the following events at DUNSTAN MIDDLE SCHOOL:
