Big Talent — The annual Windsor talent show took place on March 6, and talented individuals from around the county came out to show off their skills in singing, dancing, acting and musical composition and instrument playing. The talent show is a fundraiser for the Windsor Performing Arts Academy, which provides performing arts camps and performances for children throughout the year, regardless of ability to pay. The top scoring judges’ choice winner was the gifted Olivia Olsen who blew everyone away with her performance as Wednesday Adams singing “Pulled” from “The Addams Family” musical.
