The talent show is scheduled for Friday, April 11 beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Ransdell Chapel at Campbellsville University.

A piano will be provided. You must bring any other instruments or props you will use for your act. Microphones and a CD and tape player will also be available for your use. Bring any tapes or CDs you need. You are allowed one adult to accompany your act, if you wish.
