Theta Chi and Tapestry Win For the Glory Talent Show

Various Penn State organizations took part in 20 performances at last night’s For the Glory Talent Show as part of Homecoming Week 2013, but only one pairing went home champions. Theta Chi and Tapestry took home the title with their jaw-droppingly cool circus performance and a tap-dance act from the Tapestry Dance Company. Props to the ringmaster — that girl can DANCE.

The show was held in front of an enthusiastic crowd at Eisenhower Auditorium and featured all sorts of talented Penn Staters, from graceful dancers, to goosebump-enducing singers, to hilarious actors and beyond. The work and planning that went into these performances was obvious to everyone in the audience, based partially on the seamlessness of the acts but mostly on the quality of the wide array costumes. There were circus freaks, ballerinas, penguins, celebrity impersonators, and movie characters galore as the show progressed.

After the final performance by RAM squad, the results were announced. In third place was Delta Kappa Epsilon & Penn State Dance Alliance, with their fast-paced hoedown. In second came Alpha Chi Ro & Orchesis, for their adorable and hilarious Finding Nemo themed skit.

All in all, it was another successful Homecoming talent show — and the week is only getting started!
