Festival of Talent 2018

Join us for the upcoming Festival of Talent at Ventura High School. This district-wide event showcases the best and brightest talent in the district and is a major fundraiser for the Ventura Education Partnership. Businesses, community groups and individuals serve as sponsors for this exciting event.

This year's show is once again being directed by Rubicon Theatre Company's very talented Brian McDonald. This year's theme is "Walking on Sunshine" a chance for our community to celebrate all that we have overcome and all that we have to be grateful for.

Festival of Talent 7 p.m.  Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets will be available ONLINE and will be available at the door for $15.

All proceeds go directly to programs which benefit our students.

For this year's Festival of Talent, we have professional photographer Loren Haar of Lore Photography taking photographs of the performance. Twenty percent of the proceeds will be donated to Ventura Education Partnership! Prints and digital images of the performers will be available for purchase from an online gallery one week after the event. For more information and to purchase, go to: www.lorephotography.com/FOT2018
