Gifted young performers will be taking the stage this Saturday for the fourth annual Prince Rupert’s Got Talent fundraising show.
Twenty-two individuals, duos and groups were auditioned for the showcase last month, with 18 being selected.
“We have another line up of 18 amazing young people from our community that I consider to be very brave to go up on stage, some for the first time ever,” said Crystal Lorette, general manager of the Lester Centre of the Arts.
The performers are aged between 10 and 20 and individually or in duos or groups will be singing, playing instruments, dancing and doing acrobatics.
“There’s a little bit of everything,” Lorette said.
Three judges, two from Prince Rupert and one from Terrace, will make up the panel, determining who will win the first place prize of $1,000, second place prize of $500 and third place prize of $250.
Alley McCulloch, last year’s Prince Rupert’s Got Talent winner, will be performing while the judges deliberate, with Sean Carlson MCing the event.
The 2015 Prince Rupert’s Got Talent show will take place on Saturday, March 7 at 7 p.m. Past Prince Rupert’s Got Talent events have sold out, so Lorette encourages people to get their tickets right away.
Tickets can be purchased at the Lester Centre of the Arts box office and Cook’s Jewellers.
