ASI invites students to showcase talent

Associated Students Incorporated (ASI) wants to see some of California State University, Stanislaus’s best and brightest auditions for their free talent show to be held in the Event Center March 21 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Applications for the talent show are due Feb. 28 in the University Student Union. Auditions for the talent show will be held in the event center Mar. 7 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The auditions will include a screening process for all of the acts to make sure they are appropriate.
“The purpose for a talent show is to have students express their natural talents and to be more diverse,” said Senior Moonisah Ali, the coordinator of this year’s talent show. “It’s for the students to relax and be who they are.”
Whereas last year’s talent show had a movie-centric theme where participants acted out parts in films and dressed like actors, this year Ali said she wants the focus to be on celebrating both being a Warrior and what makes students unique.
“What I am most excited about for the show is being able to see all the performances,” Ali said. “Applications have been coming in and from what I’ve been seeing is that there are going to be a lot of unique talents.”
Past talent shows have featured students dancing or singing their favorite songs. Ali predicts there will be a good deal more of that this year in addition to spoken word poetry, circus-themed talents and even timed cake decorating.
“We have also invited Turlock High School’s winner of THS Idol as a special guest performance,” Ali said.
“They had a talent show last fall and we thought it would be a great opportunity to have the winners from that talent show come and visit our school and perform for us — in hopes of creating more community involvement on our campus.”
There will be 3 judges that are hand picked by Ali. The judges will be professors and faculty members of CSU Stanislaus.
Students, faculty, professors and the community are welcome to watch the talent show. There will be free refreshments such as bottled water, candy and popcorn.
“Events like these are important on campus because they create a sense of community among our students,” Ali said.
“It’s a fun, relaxing and entertaining event that everyone can enjoy. Plus it is always fun seeing fellow classmates perform talents you did not even know they had.”
Students that participate in the talent show will have a lot of competition — especially considering the prizes that ASI will give away to the winners.
First place winners will receive $300, with second and third place winners earning $200 and $100, respectively.
“It is a great opportunity for students to support fellow students in their hobbies and talents,” Ali said.
