APT-Sponsored Talent Show '18
Ticket Sales will open on February 1st
Talent Show began in the mid 1960’s by the parents of the late Tim Weigel (Channel 2 Sports) when he was a student at LFHS. They suggested that a Talent Show could make a very successful fundraiser. Mr. and Mrs. Weigel, who started Channel 26 in Chicago, were the first directors and they brought in two professional entertainers to be the first MC’s. These were Two Ton Baker, a Chicago nightclub entertainer and Ken Nordine, creator of Word Jazz and a staple of Chicago Jazz radio. Other well-known examples of famous MC’s are Vince Vaughn and Paul Boese who were Talent Show MC’s for two years in the late1980’s. Vince has gone on to a successful film career and Paul is now a well-known scriptwriter living in Los Angeles. Fifty-six years later, Talent Show is still going strong providing $15,000 per year for the APT to use towards enhancing educational opportunities at LFHS. Talent Show is not only great entertainment but has been a successful training ground for LFHS students who are extremely proficient in the theatrical arts. Many LFHS graduates and Talent Show Alumni work professionally in theater, film and television all over the world.
