Voices and excitement are rising as the Bear River Talent Show is coming up on Thursday, February 20, and Friday, the 21st. 

On these two evenings at 7 p.m., a variety of student acts will be put on display. Those who come to watch will be helping donate to four local charities through their purchase of a ticket. Students of all classes are performing in this extravagant show.

Senior Zoey Moody is performing a solo song in the Talent Show. Moody elaborated on the excitement and anxiety that comes with performing.

“I’m actually kinda nervous,” she said, “This is the first time I’m doing a solo act.”

 Moody is heavily involved in this year’s show including performing and curating the different acts.

“We have the Senior Lip-Sync…and we have solo acts,” she said.

Talent Show Coordinator Jeffrey Carrow is getting prepared for this year’s show and is excited to see a multitude of things.

“The acts, the performers, the people who go up on stage and give their art and their talent and do the best they can,” he said. “We’re out here getting ready to rehearse the Senior Lip-Sync right now, and that’s how we finish the show right there.” 

This year’s Talent Show looks to be jam-packed with all kinds of dancing, singing and shenanigans, but the Senior Lip-Sync is shaping up to be the show’s crown prize. The senior class is joining forces with Mr. Carrow to produce a Broadway quality piece for the ages.

In addition to the entertainment aspect, Mr. Carrow is a big advocate for the charities the show is contributing to, which include the Hospitality House, South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL), KVMR radio, and Nevada County Child Advocates. 

“The main reason [students should come to the show] is because the performers are incredible, and we also raise money for four local charities and the Joe and Jude Scholarship fund,” he said.

Senior Brendon Le said that he is excited for this year’s show and wants students to attend.

“There’s not really any shows like at Bear River,” he said. “All the band kids, the choir kids, the dance kids, all come together for one show.”

Le is a performer in the show. He is looking forward to everything the performance entails but most of all, he’s looking forward to his own act.

“I’m most excited for that opening moment when the curtains open and the crowd just starts cheering,” he said. “There’s not really any feeling like it and just being up on the stage with my friends.”

Key Club President and Lip-Sync Coordinator Senior Tressie Constantino has been a big contributor to the organization of the event, and is excited about what this year’s show holds.

 “[I’m excited] to see the final Senior Lip-Sync all put together,” she said. “Lots of singing, some dancing, some funny acts as well.”
