West’s Got Talent
Including singing, dancing, magic and more, Maine West students will showcase their skill and talents this week on stage. The West’s Got Talent show is taking place on Nov. 4, at 4 p.m. as well as Nov. 5 and 6 at 7 p.m. in the Maine West theater.
These acts, created by the students themselves and selected by the faculty sponsors, present a “plethora of fabulousness,” show sponsor Lisa Jacob said. Some acts to be performed include West Side Dance Company, as they are set to showcase their dancing in two different performances, one from a girls group and one from a boys group.
“We’re usually in the area of 25 acts that we like to take,” Jacob said, and this year Choraliers, a Desi Demaka Indian dance troupe, and Warrior Strings will be among the performers.
Senior Alexis Delgado is in line to show off his rapping skills for the fourth year in a row. In previous years, he also showcased his song writing skills, performing original songs. “He is amazing. His last two have been original raps and he’s always a crowd favorite,” Jacob said.
According to Jacob, the students participating are well practiced and prepared for a fast moving show. “We’re always trying new things to make it more interesting, to make it more enjoyable for our audience members, which is generally high school kids that like things to move,” Jacob said. With around 150 students set to perform, there is a large variety of different acts to expect.
