And Your 2016 Princess Idol Is: THE OAKDALE BLUEGRASS BAND!

The Oakdale Bluegrass Band, featuring Olivia Chapman, Cole Tilson, Stone Stewart, and Jess Langley, singing "Never Harlen Alive", won last nights Third Annual Multi-County Talent Show!
I don't like to clearly identify our young talents, but they and their parents and grandparents will know who they are in the photos below.

Regardless, the Princess Theatre Foundation, Roane State Community College, and everyone who had something do with this production is very proud of all of them.  It takes courage to step out on the stage they did so well.  They will get more and more used to in years to come, and maybe they will be encouraged to follow that "dream" on to bigger stages someday.
Muse Watson, representing the Princess Foundation, again spoke of "The Dream".
The Princess Theatre Foundation would like to thank the Roane and Morgan County Schools Directors, everyone at Roane State Community College, the Princess Theatre staff, and all the volunteers that help at each show, who make these events possible.
Kelsey Cate - 2015 Princess Idol
Thursday night's show started with Emery Francis, our first "Princess Idol", and Kelsey Cate, last year's "Idol"!  Kelsey also filled in at intermission and while the judges (Becky Ruppe, Bridgett DeFee, and Kathy May Martin) made their extremely close decision.  
This year's talent was remarkable, making it the best season yet, but there are more talented "kids" out there, so please encourage them to step forward next year. 
After a great (non-judged) session of "Hee Haw" style "pickin' and grinnin'" by the Oakdale Bluegrass Band, the show began with the first category:
MUSIC INDIVIDUALS: K through 5th Grades
INDIVIDUALS: 6th - 8th Grades
INDIVIDUALS: 9th - 12th Grades
MUSIC GROUPS: 6th - 8th Grades
MUSIC GROUPS: 9th - 12th Grades
After a short intermission, John Condrone (the evening's emcee) introduced:
Haven was a crowd favorite and won this category.
Stone Stewart and Jess Langley for "Rinder Cellar". 
Jason Benjamin and Kelsey Cate handed out the awards.
Prior to these awards, Morgan County Representative John Mark Windle stepped out on stage to marvel at the Princess Theatre and to congratulate all the participants for their courage and for their individual talents.
I personally think this was the best "talent show" yet, and I ask parents and grandparents, friends, and teachers of talented area children to encourage them to sign up for next year's "Multi-County Talent Show".  This very event could change a child's entire life.  All they need is your encouragement.  What a difference in self-esteem standing on the Princess stage could make!
And now, for what you've been scrolling down for...more photos!
 Thanks for coming!

See you next year; same place, and about the same time!

The Third Annual Multi-County Talent Show started on Roane Street, in front of the Princess, Wednesday evening with "sidewalk art" outside, and the hanging of the entries inside.

The talent show gets underway Thursday evening at 6PM, and the winners of the "art show" will be announced after the show.

Please come down and support the area students in their pursuit of art.  There will be lots of music, dancing, laughter, and beautiful art.
