Warriors Got Talent returns to the Waxahachie Preparatory Academy for a sixth year on Saturday.
Kim Hilman serves as the development coordinator for the school and is responsible for raising funds to help provide educational improvements for the academy and its students. Her department was responsible for organizing the talent show.
Entertainment will include 12 acts that range from dance, singing, electric and acoustic guitar performances, a theatrical skit, and an individual will also recite a children’s book. One of the two piano performances will also be an original composition.
Auditions were open for students in kindergarten through 12th-grade and the youngest performer to take the stage is in first-grade. The oldest is a senior.
A silent and live auction will also take place with about 50 items that range from a tour at AT&T Stadium, Texas Rangers tickets, tickets to Epic Waters and other gift cards. Waxahachie Preparatory Academy students have dedicated time in their classrooms to complete projects like gift baskets and art that will be auctioned as well.
Campus administrator Lynnette Green will serve as the auctioneer.
Premium tickets are sold for $15 and grants each patron early admission at 5:30 p.m., premium seating and a dessert and beverage. General admission tickets are $10 and include general seating, a drink and dessert. The doors will open at 6 p.m. for the remaining guests, and the show will begin at 6:30 p.m.
The show will take place on Saturday in the gymnasium.
“Academically this event helps provide educational improvements at the school that we need that we otherwise would not have funding for,” Hilman said.
She also noted other direct benefits for the students and the community. The opportunity allows students to display their talents and provide stage theater experience for students.
“We are very grateful and thankful to all of our sponsor and volunteers who have helped make this event successful,” Hilman expressed.
