Shenanigans, acrobatics, live music, and plenty of jokes!
By Sandy Rigas
Acts across all grade levels and some with family members, too, took to the stage for the annual Immaculate Conception School Talent Show. A welcome family event after a two-year Covid hiatus, the show featured 10 acts including a variety of entertainment.
Kicking off the show was 6th grader Robert Orton, singing Paul Simon’s classic hit “Me and Julio Down at the Schoolyard,” whistling included! The “Orton Family Shenanigans” continued with square-dancing by 4th grader Addy and Mom, Lynn. Younger brother, Liam, a kindergarten student and Dad, Robert, finished off the Shenanigans with a joke repartee.
“Acro Dance” by kindergarten student Lincoln Yanda featured dance moves and gymnastics.
Next up were two of the Scott brothers. 4th grader Lennox and 5th grader Hendrick with Baseball Trivia. A recent addition to the ICS Second Grade class, Kinsley Wittie, wowed the crowd with a tumbling routine.
In a second appearance on the stage was Hendrick Scott, on classical piano. He was followed by “The Crazy Cats” trio composed of three 2nd graders, Iris O’Conner, Cadence Reagan, and youngest Scott brother, Emerson. The three performed a cleverly choreographed dance routine spelling out the letters L-O-V-E to the class jazz song “L is For the Way You Look At Me.”
The Wright brothers, 5th grader Lucas and 1st grader Henry, entertained with a comedy routine.
The closing act featured the Knights Creek Quintet. A two-family affair, the ensemble included 4th grader Sebastian Peralta and his father, David, both on violin; uncle Luis on concert bass, and the Sherwood sisters, 5th grader Celeste on violin, and Eva, a 2002 ICS graduate, on cello.
