Calling All Talent!
Contributed by Shelly Gray, nasharts.org
Not only do participants have the opportunity to share their talents in front of an audience, a select few will reach the finals and have the opportunity for cash prize awards: The Nash County’s Got Talent first place carries a cash prize of $1,000. Second place awards a $500 cash prize. Third place contestant receives $250.
This competition is open to residents of Nash County and surrounding counties, who are age 14 or over.
If you’re serious about being a part of “Got Talent” this year, you’ll need to fill out an application and submit it along with the entry fee to the Nash County Arts Council in Nashville NC. The cost for an individual is $25. For groups, the cost is $50. You must be registered and receive an audition time to compete.
On October 24-25, 2016, the Nash County’s Got Talent Auditions happen. Each day, performances kick off at 5:30pm. Following these two days of talent showing, the top performers will be selected for Callbacks — these folks will compete in the finals.
Callbacks must return with a $100 sponsorship. This may be a self-sponsorship, or arrange for themselves a business or individual sponsor to support their talent.
The Finals take place November 3-4, 2016, 7pm, with the “Top 20” competitors returning to share their talents in front of an audience. This two-day event welcomes spectators to come and watch these talented, local participants as they compete for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
Spectator entry for the November 3-4 finals are $16 for both days, or $11 for a one-day pass.
