The 2012 Independent Counseling and Advocacy Network (ICAN) Talent show, “3-2-1 Talent!” took place in the Central Intermediate School Auditorium on Thursday, March 29.
Jen Williamson, talent show organizer, said this is the sixth year they have put on this event. The auditorium was packed with people and some were even willing to stand in order to see this year’s group of talented performers.
The group of 28 performers and ICAN staff members began practicing at the end of January. Williamson said the group practiced five times and had one full dress rehearsal before opening night.
The show boasted singers, dancers, comedians, an artist, a poet and a puppeteer.
Williamson said the performers and the staff members worked really hard to put together a great production.
“Jessica Barens from Terri’s Salon volunteered her time to come and help all of the performers with makeup and, John Stagman from Pantheon Computers helped set up with the microphones and audio equipment” Williamson said. “The ICAN staff is so great. They support all of the performers and make sure they are practicing and have nice outfits to wear.”
