Golden’s got talent.

And if you were in the audience Saturday night, then you know the Golden Talent Mine didn’t have to dig deep to showcase some of the city’s up-and-coming folks to watch.

Friends, family, and proud parents filled the Golden High School Auditorium on March 12 for “The Big Show,” Golden’s first-ever non-competitive community talent show, produced by retired school teacher Greg Aigner.

Among the 19 acts that performed were singers, acrobats, comedians, musicians and poets.

Produced by Aigner and directed by Miner’s Alley Play House Director of Children’s Programming Rory Pierce, proceeds from “The Big Show” will benefit the Golden Schools Foundation.

Virtuosity Dance Center provided choreography for the opening and closing numbers that featured all show performers.

According to Terrie Preister, show wrangler and marketer, The Golden Talent Mine is a program that seeks to enhance the city’s sense of community.  The program aims to produce an annual sustainable show to support local performing arts programs, enrich the connection between young and old and showcase local talent.

Didn’t make the show?

No worries.
