The Lawrence Schools Foundation and Lied Center of Kansas are proud to announce the fourth annual, district-wide talent show for middle and high school students on Sunday, February 9, at 7 p.m.

Past events have included dancers, contortionists, trapeze artists, instrumentalists, singers and more. Students participating in Ovation! will be selected through an audition process, and will share their amazing talents on the main stage of the Lied Center with full production.

Ovation! proceeds benefit the Lawrence Schools Foundation. The Foundation provides students and teachers with enrichment experiences, scholarships, teacher recognition and classroom support, innovative teaching grants and partnerships with community organizations and businesses through their LEAP programs.

“The first three Ovation! talent shows have been a huge success and we are excited to see what’s in store for this year’s show,” said Dena Johnston, Executive Director of the Lawrence Schools Foundation. “We are constantly amazed by the level of talent from our students, and so grateful for the partnership with the Lied Center in allowing our students from across the district to showcase this on the big stage!”

Tickets are $15 for adults/seniors and $5 for students/youth
