The Julia Lauer World-Famous Talent Show!

Elks Ballroom, on Fri May 17 at 6:00PM

The Friday Talent Show is our home grown variety show featuring the various talents of Esprit’s attendees. It is the highlight of an evening that begins with cocktails and a full meal served in the Ballroom of the elegant and historic Naval Elks Lodge, a short distance from the Red Lion. Since Esprit 2000, hundreds of attendees have taken to the stage to sing a song, do a skit, maybe some standup comedy or even magic. If you would like to perform, please see the performer guidelines below. We look forward to a fun and entertaining evening for all!

The cocktail hour and dinner are for Esprit attendees only, and then we will open the doors to the general public for the Talent Show at approximately 8:00 pm. A $5.00 donation will be requested at the door, all proceeds will benefit Hospice of Clallam County. There will be a no-host bar serving alcohol, so guests must be 21 years of age. Esprit staff and a local security guard will provide security and screen local guests.

After the talent show you are welcome to linger at the Elks as you ponder the rest of the evening. Our very own DJ ICY ALY will be spinning dance tunes for us to dance the night away.

Presenter Info

For many years the Esprit Talent Show has been produced by Julia Lauer. She brought just the right mix of energy, skill, talent and passion to the production to raise it to a professional-quality production. The town of Port Angeles looks forward to seeing the show every year.

In 2022 due to a sudden emergency just hours before showtime Julia was unable to run the show. However, thanks to her wonderful preparations, her well-trained team carried the evening off without a hitch.

In 2023 we lost our wonderful Julia. Her team couldn't let her down, though, and from rough notes and memories and sheer determination the 2023 Talent Show went on and was as memorable as all the rest.
