KENLY — The public will once again have the chance to get a sampling of North Johnston High School student and faculty talents at the seventh annual NoJo Night Live talent show scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 10 in the school auditorium.

Organized by North Johnston’s National Honor Society chapter, the event serves as a fundraiser for the club, with all proceeds going to the Clay Johnson Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Johnson was an honor society member and served as an emcee for NoJo Night Live in 2014 prior to his untimely death only a few weeks after it was held.

Admission to the show is $3 per person, with children in kindergarten and younger admitted free. Attendees pay at the door; seats cannot be reserved and advance tickets are not available.

Refreshments will be sold and there will be a short intermission between acts. Registration forms are now available at the school.

Auditions will be held immediately after school on Thursday, Dec 20 and rehearsal will be held after school on Feb. 8.

National Honor Society adviser Catherine Walston and Rhonda Greenup serve as NoJo Night Live advisers.

“This event is designed solely for fun and entertainment and will include skits, music and dancing,” said Walston. “We are still looking for participants.”

“We are looking forward to another great student production of NoJo Night Live,” said Greenup. “This event is not only a fundraiser for scholarships, but it also provides students the opportunity to showcase their talents and sense of humor among their peers.”

Greenup hinted spectators will have the opportunity to see a faculty skit that is almost guaranteed to bring plenty of laughs.

National Honor Society member Kailey Rea said she’s looking forward to this year’s NoJo Night Live.

“I like it because it brings our community together and shows our school spirit,” said Rea.
