When the Davis Arts Council celebrated our 30th anniversary in 2009, we thought there was no better way to start the season than by showcasing the best local talent we could find. We had our inaugural Show Layton Your Talent event. Over 80 acts auditioned for the chance to perform on the Kenley Stage and vie for the cash prizes and the glory of audience love. The winner, Jane Bruce of Ogden, used her winnings as she set off for college at the University of Michigan where she is enjoying success in their acclaimed musical theater department. Season two crowned the crowd-pleasing Jesse Sykes of Layton as grand champion when he danced his way into our hearts. Dancers also stole the spotlight in Show Layton Your Talent III, as the incredible skill of Jon Stevens and Ella Horan stole the judges’ hearts as well as winning the audience favorite grand prize. Season IV we shook things up with “The Broadway Edition” and featured one incredible song from the Great White Way after another. The audience gave Brooklyn Pulver first place for belting out the showstopper, “Don’t Rain On My Parade.”
Keep watch for more information on auditions. Know a talented kid that can sing, dance, act, juggle, or play an instrument? We’re looking for artists of all disciplines and all shapes and sizes; the only requirement is that have to be under 18 years old. Singles, duets, groups (6 artists or less), all are welcome to audition on May 10.
