The talent show will showcase the best amateur talent from Morristown, Morris Plains and Morris Township. The event will be held on February 24th, 2016 at the Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown, New Jersey.

“It’s the talent show you have come to love for the past 9 years! Our name has changed, but all the things you love are back! We will have live text voting…the audience will pick a winner and professional judges pick two others with cash prizes,” said Molly Servais, Morristown ONSTAGE event chair and member of the Morris Educational Foundation Board of Trustees.

Last year’s sold-out event was emceed by Tara Bernie, Emmy-nominated Senior Producer of Access Hollywood and a Morris School District parent who will be returning again this year to reprise her role as emcee. Servais added, “ You won’t want to miss this year’s show. Morristown ONSTAGE has become the biggest community event of the year benefiting the Morris Educational Foundation.”

“The Morris Educational Foundation is very excited about Morristown ONSTAGE and is pleased to announce that Atlantic Health System Morristown Medical Center will lead as the event’s headline sponsor.   We are proud to give our community’s local amateur talent an opportunity to perform in front of their hometown, and in a top notch facility such as the Mayo Performing Arts Center” said Kim Pistner, Chairperson of the Morris Educational Foundation. “We are anticipating selling out the theater once again this year!”

“The Morris Educational Foundation is a integral part of the Morris School District and this fundraising event will further the Foundation’s ability to distribute financial and other resources to and for the Morris School District for enrichment programs and other projects aimed at enhancing the quality of education and educational opportunities for students in the district, “added Servais.

Four distinguished arts and entertainment professionals will judge the competition. Again this year there will be a $1,000 cash prize for 1st place for contestants ages 19 and over, $1,000 cash prize for 1st place for contestants ages 18 and under, and a $500 award for the “Audience Choice” Winner which will be voted on that night at the show.
