Showing off their talents
More than 300 friends and family members recently packed the Mount Olive Middle School auditorium to watch the annual Tinc Road Variety Show. Celebrating its 20th birthday, the show featured singing, dancing, instrumental solos, comedy routines, and so much more.
About 60 students in grades 3-5 took part, both in front of and behind the curtain.
The highlights included fourth-grader Lauren Hertzig's version of “Home” from "Beauty and the Beast" and the a cappella singing of the periodic table by mad scientist and third-grader Tommy Bomsta. Brendan Blazier and Carter Cofone also had a memorable and popular act with a musical twist on their love of football. Brendan played the NFL on Fox theme on his violin while Carter ran through a mini football practice on the stage.
The Whistling Hat Boys - Michael Aaron, Scotty Huntley, William Kadus and Nicholas Fezenko - amused audiences as well. In giant top hat costumes with faces painted on their mid-sections, the students did a whistling and dancing routine to the famous theme from "Bridge Over The River Kwai."
The creative showcase also included an act by staff members. Theresa Basciano, Lauren Bretzger, Lisa Cooper, Kim Glowinski, Laura Iacampo, Melissa Kolenski, Melissa Roman, Jaimie Swingle, and Brittany Van Houten showed off the moves with a dance routine.
In total there were about 30 acts in the PTO-sponsored show, which was directed by parents Daniella McDonald and Linda Blazier. Rehearsals lasted two months.
Michelle Coyle, a parent volunteer, choreographed the 5th Grade grand finale.
