The Talent Show is a 75-minute program showcasing 35 group and individual acts of students who have invested time and effort into their talent performance. The Talent Show Committee encourages prepared and committed performing artists to audition for the show!

Students: Thank you for your interest in the Talent Show! Please know that turning in the Permission Slip does not mean you will be in the show. To be in the Talent Show, you must first try-out, be approved by the Talent Show Committee/school and commit to all dates and rules of the show. It is important for students to practice and prepare in order to audition and perform in the talent show!

Parents: This event is run by parent volunteers - parents/families of all participating students are expected to volunteer for some aspect of the Talent Show. Parents/guardians may not attend tryouts or perform on or off stage with their students. If you have any questions, please contact the Talent Show Committee at

Talent Show Committee: The goal of the volunteer Talent Show committee is to showcase the varied and wonderful talent at TMA and to ensure that participating students have a great experience. The committee will communicate with parents regularly via email.

AUDITIONS take place during lunch periods in the MPR. Students, please bring your lunch and report immediately to the MPR at the beginning of the lunch period. (For those buying lunch, see the office for a front of lunch line pass).
