Singers, dancers, piano players and drummers will take to the stage to display their talents in the first system-wide talent show for Floyd County Schools at Model High School this weekend.  The performers will include singing quartets, solo acts, dance groups, drum solos and unique artistic interpretation performances.

“This is just another example of the commitment this school system has made in developing and showcasing the talents of our artistically talented students,” stated Dr. John Jackson, superintendent of Floyd County Schools. “I look forward to the showcase and hope that the community will come out to support these gifted young people.”

The talent festival is called Showstoppers: Destination Center Stage and it will feature 11 acts involving 18 students from schools across the county.  The shows times are Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. in the auditorium at Model High.

“We have talented students just looking for ways to express themselves and share their talents with an audience,” said Sherry Childs, Fine Arts coordinator for Floyd County Schools. “This showcase and events like it help us to uncover the hidden talents of many of our students and allows us to better serve them and develop their gifts in the arts while in high school.”

Admission for Showstoppers is $5.00 and tickets will be on sale on the day of the performances at the door.
