MSC Talent Show Runs Into the Wee Hours of the Morning

Like it was stated last night for the MSC staff “Talentless Show,” the campers’ talent FAR outweighs that of the staff, and tonight’s highly-anticipated “Talent Show” definitely proved it. The show was chock full of amazing talent, running nearly two hours, and ending in the wee hours of the morning, at nearly 12:30 AM.

Here’s the talented lineup:

  • Briana Ayres played guitar and sang “Thousand Years”
  • Isaac Dispennett had the crowd eating out of the palm of his hands when he performed “Frogs,” which he would sing a line and have the audience repeat the line. As a follow-up, he changed the song to “Todd” in honor of Director Todd Hall, who, according to Isaac, “is not cool”
