VALE — Skill, creativity, and bravery were on full display at the “Shining Stars” talent show last Thursday night.

Thirty parents, siblings, and friends sat in the lower-level seats of the Rex Theater to watch 26 contestants sing, dance, play instruments, and read poetry.

It was the 22nd annual Drexel H. Foundation talent show.

Participants were divided into four age groups — 4 to 11, 12 to 14, 15 to 19, and 20 and up — with the majority of acts in the youngest group. There was a first, second, and third-place trophy for each age group and a $100 cash prize for the first-place winner. Each participant received a grocery bag . . .
