Odessa will hold first talent show

    ODESSA—The Odessa-Montour Fine Arts Boosters Club is holding its first talent show, Saturday, Jan. 28, at 7 p.m.
    It is called OMG Talent! (Odessa-Montour’s Got Talent) and is open to students. Organizer Tracy Gavich said the event will benefit the arts and music programs. She said the show will be split into two halves: the first will feature the students competing and then groups performing strictly as entertainment. Gavich explained attendees will vote at intermission on which act they liked the best. Organizers will then count the votes during the second half and announce the winner at the end.
    Gavich said that as of now, there are nine acts scheduled to compete and five groups who will provide the entertainment. The performers will include several current and retired teachers, and O-M graduates. She added she was surprised by the number of students who wanted to perform: The Hot Rod Angels (Matt Stevenson and Andy Stevenson), Samantha Murphy, Tom Peckham, Brittney Bennett, Joseph Thompson, Amanda Pyhtila, Carly Lynch-Benjamin, and Tomeesha Haller.
    “It gives the kids a chance to showcase themselves,” said Gavich.
    The idea to do a talent show came from the carnival last summer. Gavich said the students were very excited to participate in the show then. She explained the Fine Arts Boosters wanted to do something that would involve the students more. The group offers its support to the Odessa-Montour students in other ways, like sponsoring the the spring play. Gavich added the boosters plan to hold the talent show again in the future.
    Tickets cost $5 for adults and $3 for ages six to 18. Children age five and under are free.
