MORRISTOWN, NJ - Auditions for the Morristown ONSTAGE (formerly Morristown Talent Show) will take place December 12 at Morristown High School. The event will take place on February 24, 2016 at the Mayo Performing Arts Center.
“In support of our schools each February, fans from all over New Jersey descend upon the Mayo Performing Arts Center to watch the show everyone talks about - our unique showcase of singing, dancing, and instrumental talent of amateur “acts” of all ages,” said Kim Pistner, chairperson of the Morris Educational Foundation.
“It’s the talent show you have come to love for the past 9 years! Our name has changed, but all the things you love are back! We will have live text voting…you pick a winner and professional judges pick two others with cash prizes,” said Molly Servais, Morristown ONSTAGE event chair and member of the Morris Educational Foundation Board of Trustees.
Last year’s sold-out event was emceed by Tara Bernie, Emmy-nominated Senior Producer of Access Hollywood and a Morris School District parent. Bernie will return this year to reprise her role as emcee.
The MEF enhances educational opportunities for more than 5,000 students in all 10 schools of the Morris School District. Last year, $186,000 in grants were given to the Morris School District by the MEF for the enrichment of children’s education. In the past 23 years, the MEF has donated over $2 million to the schools.
“You won’t want to miss this year’s show. Morristown ONSTAGE has become the biggest community event of the year benefiting the Morris Educational Foundation.” Servais added.
