Students at Terryville Elementary School in the Comsewogue School District took to the stage of their auditorium to sing, dance, act and tell jokes during Terryville’s Got Talent— the school’s first talent show since 2019. Over 300 community members attended to see 31 student performances, a teachers’ performance and a grand finale.

“Terryville’s Got Talent is a great way for our students to showcase their passions in front of the community and share their talents with their peers,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jennifer Quinn. “During each performance, the excitement and energy from the crowd was captivating and palpable. It was great to see how encouraging and supportive our community was of our talented students.”

Student Council Advisor Dana Urbinati partnered with the Comsewogue Parent Teacher Association to coordinate the talent show. The night opened with a choreographed performance of Cindy Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” featuring Terryville’s teachers.

Students showcased Broadway musical numbers, baton-twirling routines, break-dancing acts, acrobatics routines and comedy skits, among other performances. Acts included Gianna Costellano playing the violin, Avery Parker and Arianna Rizzo performing “Made You Look,” Madison Lewald and Emily Sullivan performing “The Phantom of The Opera,” Emma Lasker and Leila Saccoccio performing “Party in the USA” and Adriana Mejia performing “This Girl is on Fire,” among others.

The show culminated with all performers joining in a finale of Meghan Trainor’s “Better When I’m Dancing.” There were no winners or awards, as the night was a celebration of everyone’s talents.
