You know it’s a successful high school event when the students are cheering each other on, and the elderly couples have left before the end of the final act.
Entertainment Penn Manor, the annual talent show presented by the student council, had another outstanding show on Saturday, April 24.
“It was really great to have the opportunity to perform in front of my peers. I really enjoyed the experience,” said sophomore Kelly Lenahan, who played piano while junior Jill Wiley sang.
People from all over the community came out to watch the acts, with some acts even earning standing ovations from members of the crowd.
“I thought the acts were good, but I wish there was more diversity of talent instead of people mainly singing. There should have been more dancing acts and other talents like the talent shows previous years,” said junior Livie Stoltzfus.
“It was really good and exciting to see all the amazing talent,” said Sabrina Kurtz, “My favorite was the band that sang ‘Under The Bridge’ by ‘Red Hot Chili Peppers’.”
