Shore Road sixth grade students took to the stage to the delight of parents and peers during the annual talent show held on Dec. 10. Masters of Ceremony Makayla Bowman, Noor Hafsa, Julianna Sabo and Adriana Gutierrez Soundias introduced each of the acts and the nine-member stage crew was responsible for keeping the program running smoothly.

Under the direction of music teacher Laura Laude, the night’s diverse entertainment included 16 acts with vocalists who performed popular numbers by Avril Lavigne and Katy Perry. There were also choreographed dance numbers, instrumental performances, a karate performance and a comedy skit.
