Local performers of all ages took to the stage on Thursday, Aug. 11, at the annual Drexel H. Foundation Talent Show at the Rex theater in downtown Vale.
Performances included songs and dance, plus original skits, stage fighting, and science experiments. Winners in each age group took home $100 and a trophy, but every performer left with a sack of prizes.
The theater was built in 1914, and has held everything from silent movies in the 1900s to more recent community meetings and events.
But the talent show “is the best thing,” said current co-owner Sandijean Fuson. “This stage has had a lot of people perform on it.”
Information on winners of the contest couldn’t be immediately obtained.
