Shoal Creek's Extraordinary Playlist: A Virtual Variety Show!

Mark your calendars - we've found a way to keep our talent show tradition alive. This year, our students are invited to submit videos of their acts to be stitched together into one extraordinary playlist that will premier for the school, on an exclusive YouTube channel, on March 12th. 


If your student has an act they've been dying to share with an audience, please fill out THIS FORM by January 24th. This format also allows for more variety in our acts as you won't be limited to the stage. HERE are some ideas. Participating students will have until February 19th to submit a video of their polished act for the talent show crew to begin the compilation process. 


Whether or not you participate, we'd love for everyone to be able to tune in to see our awesome Otters perform the skills they've honed during months at home. Look for a link to the premier in the coming months.


So warm up those vocal chords, brush up on your choreography, and let's get our playlist popping!
