Olathe's Got Talent 2018

Musical, Experimental/Perf. Art, Dance Play, Variety Show
“Olathe’s Got Talent” Invites Students to Apply for April 28 Show “Olathe’s Got Talent,” an event which showcases Olathe students and their various talents, is now accepting applications for participants for the April 28 show. Many applicants choose to perform a vocal, instrumental, theatre, dance, gymnastic, etc. act, while other students may compete in visual arts or a relatively new category which challenges them to create a video. This year’s video theme is “How Optimism Can Change the Future.” More than $8,500 in scholarships will be awarded this year. Students ages 7 to 19 who reside within the Olathe Public School District and who attend public, private or homeschools are eligible to apply individually or as a group in the performance category, while the visual arts and video category is restricted to juniors and seniors attending one of the five Olathe School District high schools. The deadline to apply in the performance category is Thursday, March 8. Performance auditions will be held Thursday, March 29 and Saturday, April 7. Visual artists and video entrants need to apply by Friday, April 13. Visit the Olathe Noon Optimist Club website or Olathe’s Got Talent on FaceBook to download the application for specific guidelines for each category. The Bell Cultural Events Center on the MidAmerica Nazarene campus in Olathe will host “Olathe’s Got Talent” on Saturday, April 28 from 7 to 9:30 p.m. The show will be comprised of 20 performance art finalists. Visual art submissions will be on display, and videos will be shown throughout the evening. Audience members will be able to cast a vote or votes for their favorite performers. Judges will evaluate the stage performances, and scholarships will be awarded in various categories. Luke Harbor won the Simmons Show Stopper Award Winner in 2012 for his unusual skill of beatboxing. “My art form was something I really wanted to show people, and… even if I didn’t get the scholarship, I got to be in front of an audience who really cared about what I did.” Directed by Victor J. Dougherty and Marc Wayne, “Olathe’s Got Talent” is organized by Olathe Noon Optimists and the Bell Cultural Events Center at MidAmerica Nazarene University. Olathe Lincoln Ford is the Presenting Sponsor for the seventh year in a row.
