A new club at Warren County High School is asking for community support in its inaugural talent show scheduled for May 1 at 6 p.m.
Multicultural Club members are holding the talent show as a fundraiser.
“We are a new club here at the high school,” said Robert Balderas, high school sophomore and Multicultural Club president. “Our club gives students here an opportunity to be introduced to different cultures around the world. It’s a fun club.”
The club has about 40 members and approximately 10 different cultures are represented. The club is open to all students.
For the talent show, there will be 16 performances: eight before intermission and eight after. The talented students will be competing for cash prizes with $150 going to first place, $100 to second place, and $75 to third place.
Balderas says the acts will be as diverse as the club and a select few will be invited for a second performance during the day on May 5 for high school students only.
“I’ve seen some of the acts and they are pretty good,” he said. “One is doing ballet. There will be singers, guitarists, piano players, and other stuff. Seven acts out of the 16 will get to be in our day show at the school just for students.”
While Multicultural Club is going to be community-service oriented by lending a helping hand with events such as Warren County Habitat for Humanity’s building of homes, Warren County Senior Center’s Second Harvest Food Bank distribution and Kids of the Community’s various activities, charity starts at home. Proceeds raised from the event will be used to help other clubs at the high school.
Advanced tickets are currently on sale for $4 and can be purchased from any club member or by calling the school at 668-5858.
Tickets at the door are $5. Doors open on May 1 at 5:30 p.m. and the talent show is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
