April 03, 2011

WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Twenty acts will take the stage Saturday for the second annual Waynesboro’s Got Talent show benefiting nonprofit organization Communities That Care.

“Last year we sold 200 tickets. We’re hoping for that or better,” said K. Marilyn Smith, of Communities That Care.

The talent show is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in the Waynesboro Area Senior High School auditorium. Tickets, which are $5 each, can be purchased at the door or in advance at the Greater Waynesboro Chamber of Commerce office.

Volunteer Angela Austin is producing the show, which includes one group of 10 and two duets, Smith said. On tap are piano, song and dance performances, she said.

Trophies will be awarded in the featured categories — kindergarten through sixth grade, seventh and eighth grades, and ninth through 12th grades.

“Jeb Keller is the master of ceremonies,” Smith said. “He was a huge hit last year.”

Judges are Jerry Kowallis, Caroline Dean and Jennifer Vanderau, according to Smith.

Proceeds benefit Communities That Care’s programs for youth.

“I love it. It is so much fun to watch the kids. ... I just think they’re amazing,” Smith said.

Last year’s winners, Hannah Richardson and Claire Martin, agreed to perform while scores are being tabulated, Smith said.
