LEWISTON, Idaho – It’s time for students, faculty, and staff at Lewis-Clark State College to join with the local community and put their talents on display, all for a good cause.
On April 17 at 7 p.m. LCSC’s Silverthorne Theatre Group and the Warrior Entertainment Board (WEB) are presenting LCSC’s Got Talent! in the Silverthorne Theater - a talent show that welcomes performers of all sorts from both on and off campus.
The talent show is a fundraiser for the Silverthorne renovation project scheduled to begin at the end of the spring 2014 semester. Proceeds will be used for technical improvements in the theater. The Silverthorne Theater was dedicated on July 17, 1993, in honor of Carolyn Silverthorne who served as the College’s Director of Theatre from 1930 until her passing in 1951.
Auditions for the show take place on the LCSC campus March 26 and 27 and April 10 from 5:30 to 7:30 in the Silverthorne Theater. Sign-up sheets are available at the Student Union Building information desk. Performers selected to compete will pay a $5 registration fee to hold their place for the event. Admission to the show is by donation.
LCSC Vice President for Student Affairs Andy Hanson will serve as Master of Ceremonies and the panel of local celebrity judges includes LCSC President J. Anthony (Tony) Fernández.
There are three categories: Student Individual Talent, Student Group Talent, and Community Talent. Performances are limited to five minutes.
Prizes are being donated by WEB, the Silverthorne Theater Group, LCSC Student Affairs, Associated Students of LCSC, and Lewiston Civic Theatre. Additional donations of prizes from community businesses, organizations, and individuals are welcome, as is assistance in producing the show. Among the prizes current and future students will be competing for is a $250 scholarship.
