The first-ever Farmers Have Talent will take place in the Leo C. Stuver Auditorium on Friday, Sept. 21 at 7 p.m. This talent show was created by theater director Bradley Durio in hopes of bringing the school community together as it allows both staff and students to participate.

“This talent show is open to everyone in this school and the other campuses, other schools, even the teachers as well,” senior theater secretary Miquela Lopez said. “Everybody can be involved in it somehow and we can have a large audience. There [are] also cash prizes in this [show].”

Differing from the spring talent show, Coffee House, Farmers Have Talent is open to the community, not just fine art students.

“I think it’s important to have [the show] open to students and staff so that way everybody feels connected,” Lopez said. “Like I said before, Lewisville Theatre is like a family; [we’re] pushing our joy movement so everybody feels like they belong.”

The show will include many different students with unique talents. Junior orchestra members Garrett Hicks and Tommy Gilmore will be performing a cello and bass duet of “Heart and Soul” by Hoagy Carmichael with lyrics by Frank Loesser.

“I really like to play pieces for orchestra and so does my friend Tommy, and we thought that ‘Heart and Soul’ is a pretty piece to put together in the limited amount of time we decided that were going to audition before we did,” Hicks said.

Junior Claire Fowler and senior Mahek Jaffer will be performing a dance to the song “Revolting Chicken” from the musical, “Matilda.” The girls are excited to perform together and have a good time, even if they don’t win the cash prize.

“I love dancing,” junior Claire Fowler said. “Doing it with my friends made it a lot of fun; doing it in a competition [will be] even more invigorating.”
