The annual Talent Show always goes down well and this year was no exception. The artists excelled themselves and the audience turned up in their hundreds.
We were entertained by a trio of gorgeous Spanish dancers, two of whom were visitors and the third was Grace’s own Tarryn Plaatjies. Castanets, and colourful costumes complimented their awesome dancing skills and left the audience shouting “Ole” after each dance.
Mevrou Walters and Mrs Hirschfield performed an hilarious scene entitled “Department of Motor Vehicles Tyrant ”, written by Christopher Durang. These two committed, talented ladies rehearsed the play to perfection, depicting two highly amusing characters who demonstrated the frustration of trying to get service from a government official who is incompetent and unwilling to help.
The programme for the evening was varied and full of fun: drumming, solo singing, accompanied singing, accapelo singing, comic duo’s, piano playing, guitar playing. Every artist performed excellently and they are all commended on their talent and for “Showing” it at the Talent Show.
While each one was a winner, the judges awarded prizes to the following artists:
3rd – Rebecca and Michael Webster on their djembe drums
2nd – Gugu Gwamanda and her band “Mobile Supermarket”
1st - Braydon Marie playing his electric guitar
Prize money was contributed by our generous Parents’ Association.
Members of the Grace College Family are encouraged to start planning their numbers for next year. Don’t be left out; come and “Show Your Talent 2018”.
