The second annual Presbyterians' Got Talent Show June 4 at First Presbyterian Church of New Canaan featured seven acts from an inter-generational cast of performers.
Kate Reeves performed a gymnastics floor routine to "Hope is in Front of Me." Lucy Hampel and Vivi Reeves did a duet of "Do You Want to Build a Snowman" from the movie "Frozen," and Reeves encored with a dance number, "Eye of the Tiger," with partner Johnny Laird.
The show closed with two numbers from the rock band Martians on Clay, "When We Were Young" and "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall," which featured Will Dooley on vocals, Ben Dooley on percussion, Michael Colonna on guitar and Matthew Colonna on keyboard.
Prizes were awarded to all participants by judges Sherry Tate and the Rev. Paul Gilmore. Sean McCarthy, the master of ceremonies, offered advice throughout the evening, quoting Garrison Keillor, to the young people in the audience on selecting an instrument.
