Talent shines at North Saanich Middle School

A plethora of talented performers hit the stage at North Saanich Middle School last week

The North Saanich Middle School Performance Band delighted the audience with a rendition of Mambo No. 5 during the Showcase.

A plethora of talented performers hit the stage at North Saanich Middle School last week for the school’s bi-annual Showcase evenings held May 8 and 9.

Showcase, essentially a talent show, has been a fixture at NSMS for over 20 years. Grade 6, 7 and 8 students audition for Showcase in early April and are then mentored by staff members who help them polish their performances for the big night.

This year, audiences were treated to a variety of talent including singing, dancing and band performances.

“There are so many people to thank for making Showcase happen,” said NSMS Grade 7 teacher and one of the organizers, Val Shantz.

“Some key players were Mr. Doug Caley, NSMS Computer Technician, who worked countless hours with our Tech Crew, Mme. Robillard, the Band Director for all the bands and Darcy McNee and Carolin McDonnell, who were the key teachers involved in auditioning, and rehearsing with the performers.

“We couldn’t have done it without everyone who helped.”

The proceeds from Showcase’s ticket sales will go back into the performing arts programs at the school.
