View Full Version : Talent Show Info

01-06-2003, 02:24 AM
I've been reading through old navigators and saw that there were talent shows listed on the 7-night cruises, family and adult. My mom and I are both singers, so we thought it would be fun to sing something together. Has anyone participated in the adult show and has any info they could share? Are most acts performed a cappella or is there an accompanist or some other way to have background music? Do they expect you to bring sheet music if there is an accompanist? I'm assuming that most acts consist of singers, but what other kind of performances have you seen?

Also, how were the shows, i.e. was it something worthwhile to participate in or attend, or should we spend our time doing something else?

Thanks a bunch!

We participated in the talent show during our June cruise. There was 9 of us, kids and adults from our praise choir. I took our accomp. CD along. There were kids and adults that participated. Some had tapes or cd's and some sang a cappella. None used an accompanist although one person played the keyboard for their act. Since it was June there were a lot of dance recidal acts. My complaint about it was that they advertised limited spaces. It was scheduled at 7:30 the last night of the cruise. We had late seating. We were assured that it would only last 1 hour but with all the acts they had there was no way we were going to make dinner. They scheduled us last. We talked to the MC and he did move us up the list. Hope this helps. Nasi
