“Morton Talent Show: Bigger, Badder, Better” – Request for Talent for Second Annual Morton Memorial Talent Show!

Wow!  After seeing the wide range of talent at last year’s talent show at Morton, there was never a question in our minds that we had to make it an annual affair!

From the original art on the walls, to Postmaster Steve’s reading from Mark Twain, to whoopee cushion acts, to homemade soft pretzels, to the musical styling of the Kahan family and friends, the kick-off event last year was indeed an old fashioned talent show!
This year we hope to include even more community members.  This show and our community are all about enjoyment and camaraderie — no judgment!  So please use your imaginations and share your immense variety of talents.

Everyone has a talent for something, and it is so much fun to have a big festive night at Morton where everyone shares and shines.  For example, if you are a visual artist, bring work that you would like to have displayed and possibly purchased by an admiring audience member.  If you are a musician or have musical aspirations, be prepared to regale with song (piano provided).  If you can talk a blue streak while juggling, then bring it on, and if you can create an edible masterpiece, we can promise a truly appreciative audience.  We even have a projection system for showing short films – no more than 3 minutes, please – if anyone feels so inspired.  Any and all types of creative expression — including the odd and quirky — are welcomed and embraced.

If you feel that you would prefer your talents remain private, please just come and enjoy your friends/family/neighbors’ talents.

The talent show will be held Friday, March 4, 2011 starting at 6 p.m.
(Visual art will remain on display in Morton Hall for the month of March.) 
Please let me know by February 12th whether you would be interested in participating and in what capacity.
I will ask that displayable work be delivered to the library – 82 Kelly Street, Rhinecliff – by Saturday, February 26th.
Please e-mail me at  mortonlib@hotmail.com if you have questions.

Thanks so much from Morton Memorial Library and Community House, where we all put the ‘community’ in ‘Community House!
