All entries are in for the Monson Arts Council talent show, Western Mass Performs. Auditions are being held (or, have been held) the weekend of March 6 and 7, and the performers chosen to compete for the $1750 in cash prizes. This is exciting for the contestants, but equally so for those privileged to watch them compete.

Tickets are available online, as they were last year, as well as at the door. Just visit the Talent Show Tickets page and place your order. Tickets will be held for you at the "will call" table.

This is s a fantastic show, and a real bargain. At $10 for adults, $7 for students and seniors, it is about half what you would pay for any other local theater performance. The level of talent is astoundingly good, and the audience really gets into the spirit of the evening. Prizes are awarded just 5 minutes after the last act has taken its bow.

The talent show is sponsored by the Monson Arts Council scholarship committee as a fundraiser for the arts scholarship fund. Each spring the committee awards a scholarship of $1000 to a high school senior who resides in Monson and has shown a strong interest in the arts through their high school career.

The Council will again be offering three door prizes to attendees at the event. The prizes are donated by three Monson Artists and are an attraction all by themselves.

Donna Beck of 2:30 am Studio has donated a striking handmade book, covered with paste paper which she designed herself, and embellished with colorful "found" objects and a skeleton leaf. The exquisite pages are handmade of cotton linters and onion skins, sized and buffered. A gold organdy ribbon wraps around to tie the book closed. The second door prize, by metalworker Peter Mayberry of Wilbraham Road, is a copper Striper whose iridescent colors are produced entirely by the natural reaction of the metal to heat. The third door prize, donated by Peter Barnett of Zuell Hill Road, is a digital print taken from an original oil painting entitled "Sycamores", a view of two sycamores leaning over a frozen stream.
