Redditch Has Talent is looking for new acts to perform in the final heats ....... ON THE STAGE OF THE PALACE THEATRE ON THURSDAY 29th JUNE 2017!

WE ARE LOOKING FOR 12-16 ACTS, FEATURING TALENTED PEOPLE AGED 10 - 100 YEARS FROM WITHIN AN APPROXIMATE EIGHT MILE RADIUS OF REDDITCH TO APPEAR IN THE FINALS AT THE PALACE THEATRE.

THERE WILL BE NO RESTRICTION ON THE TALENT - SINGING; MUSICAL INSTRUMENT(S); BAND; MAGICIANS; VENTRILOQUISTS; JUGGLERS; DANCERS; ACROBATS; STAND UP COMICS; MIME - IF YOU HAVE  A TALENT, WE WANT TO SEE IT!

EACH ACT WILL HAVE A MAXIMUM OF 5 MINS TO PERFORM. THE INITIAL SELECTION FOR THE FINALISTS WILL NOT REQUIRE SPECIALIST EQUIPMENT - WE JUST NEED TO SEE THE ‘RAW’ TALENT. FOR THE FINAL, THE THEATRE WILL PROVIDE ALL THE NECESSARY TECHNICAL SUPPORT AND ADVICE SO THAT EVERY FINALIST IS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO PERFORM AT THEIR BEST IN A PROFESSIONAL ENVIRONMENT.

WE RECOGNISE THERE ARE A LOT MORE THAN 12-16 TALENTED ACTS AND PERFORMERS OUT THERE, BUT THERE HAS TO BE A LIMIT AND AS THIS IS AN ANNUAL EVENT, IF YOU DON’T MAKE THIS FINAL THERE WILL BE OTHERS TO COME! THERE WILL BE FOUR AGE GROUP CATEGORIES 10-13 (Yrs 5-8); 13-16 (Years 9-11); 16-18 (Yrs 12-13 or College); 19+

THE FOUR ‘AGE GROUP WINNERS’ WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON THE EVENING OF THE FINALS, BUT EVERY ACT FEATURED IN THE SHOW WILL RECEIVE RECOGNITION FOR THEIR APPEARANCE. AGE GROUP WINNERS WILL RECEIVE A TROPHY AND OTHER DELIGHTS!

SAT 25th MARCH 12-1pm or 7-8pm

THOSE ACTS SELECTED FOR APPEARANCE AT THE PALACE THEATRE IN THE FINALS WILL BE NOTIFIED BY MONDAY 3rd APRIL 2017. THIS WILL GIVE AMPLE TIME TO PREPARE FOR THE FINALS AT THE THEATRE ON THURSDAY 29th JUNE 2017.

FOLLOWING SELECTION FOR THE FINAL, EACH ACT WILL BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO DISCUSS WHAT TECHNICAL SUPPORT THEY NEED FROM THE THEATRE. THERE WILL ALSO BE A PHOTO SHOOT OF ALL FINALISTS ON SATURDAY 8th APRIL 12noon - 1pm FOR PUBLICITY PURPOSES, AS EXPLAINED IN THE PERMISSION FORM WHICH YOU ARE ALSO ASKED TO COMPLETE AND RETURN WITH YOUR APPLICATION FORM.
