Randolph High School Students Shine in Annual Talent Show


RANDOLPH, NJ- The students of Randolph High School put on their annual Talent Show on Wednesday night.The event is a chance for the students of RHS to show off their unique talents - though many participants choose to sing and play a popular song, either with a few friends or independently, others performed original dance routines and even stand-up comedy.

The night began with Brenan Corcoran singing a mashup of a few familiar songs, gearing the audience up for a variety of acts throughout the night. Gabby Toledo, who went next, covered Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” and stunned audiences with her powerful voice. This trend continued with Ria Bagga’s rendition of “Ignorance” by Paramore. Ria was then accompanied by Jordan Levene and the two performed a duet of Taylor Swift’s “Everything Has Changed.”

They were followed by seniors Margaret Thomson and Carole Harsch, who danced to a nostalgic mashup of classic Disney Channel songs. Next up was Cristina Winchell with an original song, which the audience went wild for. The festivities continued with Sean Harris and Gianni Caserta covering the classic “American Girl,” by Tom Petty, followed by Jesse Bush performing Neon Trees’ hit “Everybody Talks” on acoustic guitar, and Hayley Ornstein and Jesse Bush with a duet of “Fall For You” by Secondhand Serenade.

Madison Craig then performed a stripped-down version of Kanye’s “Heartless” on piano, followed by Sidney Gish and her original song, a comedic take on a fictional girl’s dreams of following her favorite boyband on tour. Shelly Goldstein went next, with a tap dance routine to “Love Don’t Die” by The Fray. Alice Rolle took the stage after that, singing Ed Sheeran’s sweet and endearing “Kiss Me.”

A bit of a deviation from the previous acts, Chris Medina’s stand-up comedy act came next, and was met with roaring laughs throughout the audience. While a bit of a change from the multitude of pop songs preceding and following it, the change was definitely welcomed.

As the audience calmed themselves down, Lisa Scola began to introduce her original song, about the struggles faced everyday by teenage girls. The song was beautiful, and a good amount of girls in attendance were sure to relate.

After she finished, Kyle Kirshenbaum impressed all with a contemporary dance routine to dubstep music, taking the show in a different direction for a short while.

Finally, Kelley Guerra took the stage as the last act of the night, performing Vance Joy’s “From Afar.” It seemed the perfect way to close out the night.

Each and every performer present did a phenomenal job, regardless of their talent, reminding everyone involved just how talented RHS students can be.
