Star search is your way to find the next big star. A talent show is a great way for kids to display their skills for applause and recognition. This indoor kids' activity just might have to become a yearly event!
What You'll Need:
- A routine
- Costumes (optional)
- Friends to audition
How to Do Star Search:
If your kids want to put on a talent show, they'll need different kinds of acts.
Step 1: Have each child learn a song or two, or come up with a really funny comedy routine. You'll want to place these solo acts between the group numbers.
Step 2: Singers can try performing a number in the character of the person the song is about and in costume. Comedians can practice their timing and try to use topics that everyone can relate to; you'll "hook" your audience early on.
Step 3: Have your children's friends audition for the show with their special solo acts.
Tip: You may have heard it before, but professionals do it too -- instruct your performers to practice in front of a mirror. It will give them more confidence later.
Next, take the pressure off with an easy theatre activity.
