In a comfortable pair of pajamas, guests followed the red carpet to the NPI Auditorium on March 19 for a pajama party-themed show that didn't disappoint.
This year's talent show featured a variety of acts selected from all classes within the medical school. The student performers volunteered for the audition process overseen by Adam Braun, vice president of the first-year class student council and accompanied by Alex Goel and Trevor Mooney. According to Braun, "We have an incredible amount of talented people, so we are lucky to say that they were all included in the show."
Goel and Mooney, in addition to their talent-selection duties, were the emcees for the evening. These gregarious first years were essential to the success of the event, as they were in charge of the show's newest feature: audience participation.
Approximately 20 acts were featured during the talent show, ranging from singing and dancing to comedy and martial arts. This year, audiences were also treated to traditional instrumentalists celebrating cultures from around the world.
Free entry and charitable bake sale
The event was free, but attendees were encouraged to bring some cash for the bake sale that was held during intermission. Proceeds from the sale will be donated to charity.

The annual talent show at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA is an honored tradition that unites the classes in shared talent and community.
