Carpinteria's small stage at the Plaza Playhouse Theater put on a big time talent show over the weekend.

Performers in the fifth annual Rotary Talent Showcase came from Ventura, Carpinteria, Santa Barbara and Goleta. Auditions were held late last year, and 24 acts were chosen.  They included singers, dancers, musicians, and a magician.

The ages ranged from a nine-year old singer to a  94-year old harmonica player.

The Carpinteria Rotary says the funds raised will help pay for new instruments for local students.
