Talent show tops charts

by | Mar 11, 2021 | Latest

Aspiring talent of all ages got a moment in the spotlight Saturday night in downtown Farmersville.

Fine Arts on Main hosted its inaugural talent show Saturday, March 6, at its venue on Main Street. The show featured 14 singing and dancing acts which were performed before judges – Ashley Reeves, Kade Rog­ers and Pip Bickford – for a grand prize of $1,000.

Bickford is the director and founder of Greenville Theatre Works, Reeves is an local actor/ hair artist and Rogers is a coun­try music artist.

“Our judges brought years of experience, knowledge, creativ­ity and support,” FAM co-owner and event emcee Gwen Snyder said.

According to Snyder, the show was completely sold out two days before the show.

“I could see that the doors were open, and a crowd of peo­ple were standing outside watch­ing,” she said.
