The students of H.D. Stafford Middle School have combined two popular concepts – Christmas and a talent show to create the North Pole’s Got Talent, a fundraiser Dec. 17.
More than a dozen acts will perform and the public is invited to attend this event that will raise funds for BC Children’s Hospital.
“The BC Children’s Hospital is something a little more special to us. Being kids just like the patients at the hospital makes us think more about what they’re going through, it gives us all the passion to want to help them,” said student Samantha Haufler, one of the organizers.
The student performers will be from Grades 6 to 8 and must audition for a spot in the North Pole’s Got Talent.
“This is indeed the first time for this particular style of show for us,” said teacher Nate Cavalli.
On stage will be a cross section of students, including some from the Integrated Fine Arts and material from the school’s February 2016 play.
“There will also be a preview of our upcoming play called The BFG,” he said. “So there will be some drama, some music, some dance, and some other unique talents.”
The public is invited to attend the 5 p.m. talent show (there are others for students earlier).
Donations will be accepted at the door and any donation over $20 qualifies for a tax receipt.
