The Grandview K-6 PTO will shine the spotlight Friday on 35 acts featuring more than 100 students during its annual Talent and Variety Show.

The talent show will be presented at 6 p.m. in the Grandview High School auditorium.

"Our goal is to give our students their moment in the spotlight," said Sherry Daniel, who serves as co-chair of the PTO's talent and variety show committee with Liz Shannon.

The entertainment offered during Friday night's show "will run the gamut," Daniel said. "We'll have singing, dancing, magic acts, piano players, guitar players, comedy, you name it."

Auditions for the show were held earlier this month, although no student is denied a place in the line-up, she said.

"We structure the auditions like a real audition," Daniel said.

The acts are called up one by one and they have to perform before a small group, she said.

"It's such a kick to see what the kids come up with," Daniel said. "The auditions are just so much fun for the committee.

"We try to give them some instruction and help to make their act the best it can be," she said.

Some youngsters approach their audition with confidence, while others are shy and nervous, Daniel said.

"It makes you so proud to see a child up there performing when they are maybe a little nervous," she said.

All 35 acts will be presented in a show lasting about two hours, Daniel said.

"We try to keep the show moving and mix it up so we have a good balance throughout the show," she said.
