Fox Chapel Area High School students will sing, recite poetry and perform magic during “Fox Chapel’s Got Talent,” a competition following the format of its reality TV series counterpart.

Students have the chance to walk away with a top prize of $300.

The show is at 7 p.m. April 25 in the high school auditorium. It is open to the public.

This year’s talent includes a band, pianist, guitar player, vocal solos and duets, a magic act and a poetry performance. There are 15 acts in total.

Contestants will perform before three judges including Brian Worsdale, music director of the Three Rivers Young Peoples Orchestra; jazz vocalist Tania Grubbs; and a surprise district student judge.

First prize is $300, followed by $200 and $100.

Tickets cost $7 for adults and $3 for students and senior citizens, and will be sold at the door. Proceeds benefit the high school PTO, a group that supports student programs.

There will be audience raffle prizes as well. They include recording sessions from Tonic Recording Studios, tickets to the 2019 Prom and 2019 Homecoming, a temporary student parking pass, Pittsburgh Public Theatre tickets and various gift cards.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
