St. John’s got talent!

full_cast2Each year, 10th grade theater students are invited to stay in the Performing Arts Center (PAC) all night for a tradition named 24-Hour Theater. The theme for this year’s 24-hour theater, ‘Belgium’s Got Talent,’ had sophomores singing, dancing, and doing magic. Yesterday, this annual event had students, teachers, and parents rolling with laughter.

The 10th graders, assisted only by IB theater students, wrote and performed a satirical episode of the popular TV show “Britain’s Got Talent.” Complete with host, judges, and introductory videos, this parody came together in just 24 hours. While very funny, the performance also showcased some of 10th grade’s truly talented singers and dancers with songs ranging from ‘Hallelujah’ to “I Will Survive.”
