MFEE Talent Showcase This Month

MFEE Talent Showcase This Month
Posted on 04/04/2022

On one night, in front of one outdoor stage, the Montclair Public School community will come together – in person – to celebrate our town’s hidden talents that highlight our unique diversity. Let’s see what Montclair can ShowUS! 

In 2018, the Montclair Fund for Educational Excellence (MFEE) hosted a ShowDOWN, a talent show with a competitive twist. In 2020, MFEE decided to ShowUP, bringing us together virtually for a much-needed night of talent, laughter, and togetherness. And now in 2022, it’s time to ShowUS all the talent that’s been hiding right in our midst.

This year, the entire family is invited to ShowUS Montclair outside at Lackawanna Plaza on April 30 at 7 pm.  The award-winning event will be an inspiring, interactive evening of local and exceptional performers and stories that highlight the beauty of our diverse community.

Tickets are on-sale now, and the cost of each ticket is a donation to MFEE. A portion of proceeds will support MFEE’s innovative youth programs that provide academic support and address social/emotional needs. Ticket prices range: $35 for general admission to $120 for a family ticket. 

The host for the evening will be Tony Award-winner, five-time Tony Award nominee Laura Benanti! While the performers are always spectacular, the most beloved part of the show is witnessing the surprising ways that Montclair Public School administrators and teachers show up on stage.

Whether it's some surprising talent or just some amazing bravado in an all-out lip sync battle, MFEE guarantees that the hidden talents of staff – and maybe even our Board of Education members – will bring smiles and laughter.

See who is performing and get your tickets!
