Your Guidebook to the 2024 Variety Show

'Tis the season! It's time to talk Variety Show, and we have all the info you need right here.  Read on to find out:

  • What is needed now
  • Our new and stress-free registration procedure
  • When to choose a song
  • And everything else you'll need to going forward

The OHS Variety show 2024 will be on Saturday, April 27th at 11:30am at Black Rock Church.

Dress rehearsal will be the evening of Friday, April 26th. 

We truly want this announcement to bring nothing but excitement. We know sometimes it can create panic. On the PTA website we have provided you with a timeline and our goal is to work with groups so that all information is clear and easy. This should be fun!!!

What is the Variety Show? 

The Osborn Hill Variety Show is an annual showcase giving our kids the opportunity to perform on stage in front of their families and friends. Many acts choose to dance to a song, but we’ve also featured singers, musicians, sports demonstrations, comedy acts and more! The kids can perform solo or in a group.  

What do you need to do right now? 

Not much! We would like your groups to be created by January 5th. That just means you know WHO you will be performing with, not WHAT you will be performing. Groups should not be larger than 10 children, due to stage space. If this creates a problem please reach out to us. All members of your group MUST be PTA members (this is for insurance reasons).

How do you register? 

It’s easy! Once individual performers or groups have been formed, please email Ohsvarietyshow2024@gmail.com with the name of your group/act and each members’ name and grade. You can also email this address with any questions or concerns. Registration is open now but there’s no rush - there is no limit on how many acts can participate, but please note each child can only be part of one group (not including the 5th grade finale).  Song submissions will be open after the holiday break - please see our website for more information .   Registration closes January 5. 

We are also looking for Stage Crew and Narrators

If your 4th or 5th grader is not interested in being part of an act and still want to participate, they can be a member of the Stage Crew or serve as a Narrator.  If this is your child's preference, email Ohsvarietyshow2024@gmail.com before January 5. (see below for prerequisites)

  • Stage Crew is a position for 5th graders who do not wish to participate in a routine (this does not include the 5th grade finale - they can participate in that if they choose). We are looking for 5 students. 
  • Narrators are open to 4th and 5th graders who want to be on stage to introduce the acts. 

Would you like to join our team? 

We are looking for a volunteer or two to take the lead in creating the photo slideshow which opens the program. If this is something you would be willing to take on, please let us know. Stay tuned for other volunteer opportunities closer to the show. 

We have a full breakdown of important dates and deadlines on our website:

**About the date...we realize that Saturdays in the spring are busy times for families. We urge you to be open to this date as it was the only option that was available to us.  Our hope is that with this much notice families will be able to participate. Thank you for understanding and for your support as we try something new!
