Upcoming Talent Competition Will Benefit Children in Need

The fourth-annual Happy Valley’s Got Talent fundraising competition will take place on Saturday, March 29 at the State Theatre.

Twelve contestants will participate in a talent competition judged by prominent State College figures, such as Sue Paterno and Mayor Elizabeth Goreham. Proceeds will benefit Tides, a program that helps grieving children and their families. In addition to the proceeds from ticket sales, the Koch Funeral Home has agreed to match every dollar raised.

“Often grieving children have taught us they need a break from the seriousness of what has happened in their lives,” Tides Executive Director Suzanne Thompson said. “Not only does Happy Valley’s Got Talent showcase local talent, but it provides entertainment for our Tides’ families and the community as well.”

The show will be split into three divisions based on age. Acts participating in the competition range from dance, a, a capella, solo artists, and musicians. The 1st place winner of the competition will take home a $250 cash prize.

Penn State’s a capella group None of the Above is just one of the lucky contestants. You can check out some of their super-coordinated singing skills for yourself:

Almost 50 hopefuls auditioned for a spot in the show in early March, out of which the final 12 were chosen.

There will be two performances of the show. The matinee showing will start at 2 p.m., and the final competition will take place at 7 p.m. in the State Theatre.

Tickets for the matinee are $10, and they are $20 for the final performance. They can be purchased online or at the State Theatre Box Office.
