Students are also invited to perform in front of their peers and families, on a large stage, under the lights, and with the technical support of stage crews and other helpful members of the extended family. The annual student show usually takes place in December, with a benefit theme, giving students the chance to give back to the community. The show is held at a large venue such as The Stone Pony or the Paramount Theater in Asbury Park NJ. The most recent show drew over 600 in attendance. The media and talent scouts are invited to these shows.
