Pocono Great Talent Event 80’s Edition
STROUDSBURG, Pa. – Jan. 31, 2023 – PRLog — The 4th Annual Pocono Great Talent Event marks its return with an ’80s themed Community Talent Event. Beginning in October 2022, event organizers held auditions at the Sherman Theater to discover the best talent in our region. The competition will include a variety of acts from dancers and vocalists to magicians and comedians. “We have had themes over the years, and the ’80s was such a fun and popular decade that we thought it would be fun to make this year’s theme the 80’s,” said event organizer Gil Coronado. He added, “All 20 finalists will perform an ’80s themed act.”
The Pocono Great Talent event benefits the Fine Arts Discovery Series, whose mission is “To serve our community by providing quality, culturally-diverse entertainment from nationally-known professional acts that brings patrons to the historic Sherman Theater and create a unique catalyst for economic development in the region and by providing community theatre, educational programming and performance opportunities that support local talents’ artistic and career development in music, dance, theatre and the visual arts.”
“This program allows us to continue that mission and help aspiring performers get recognized”, said Richard Berkowitz, President and CEO of Sherman Theater.
Through the auditions, 20 finalists were selected to perform on the Sherman Theater Stage to compete for the grand prize and the title of the Pocono Great Talent Event Winner. Freestyle Artist Cynthia will perform her hit song “Change on Me” and then join the judge’s table. There will also be special performances by Robin Schnieder paying homage to the late Olivia Newton John, Pocono Great Talent Event #3 Winner Joshua Rob, and the Fusia Dance Company.
The 20 Finalists are Johnny Rocco, Hailey White, Sabrina White, D’Neah, Celia Berrios, Kayla Barrone, Tesamonie, Gabrielle Zabosky, Peter Valkucas, Kash Crowley, Maia Gilbes, Jessica Torres, Alexander DiDuca, Brookel Sabella, Gary Michaels, Richard Kim, Luma Rowashda, Jim Reynolds, Myles Betancourt, and Michelle Galvis.
