For more than 80 years, students at the Keystone Oaks School District have shown off their skills at the annual “Varieties” talent show.

The 84th show, hosted Nov. 8 and 10 at the Keystone Oaks High School's Michael A. Callara Auditorium, began in the 1920s as a gymnastics exhibition, school officials said.

It evolved into the current talent show format, drawing 23 acts this year. Those include comedy skits, dance routines and musical acts. School spokesman Jim Cromie said past participants included Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, a native of Green Tree, and comedian Dennis Miller, a native of Castle Shannon. Both are alumni of Keystone Oaks or its predecessor, Dormont High School.
