‘Wicked Good Talent’ call
Auburn — In its fifth year, “Maine’s Got Talent” got a makeover — a name change to “Wicked Good Talent” — and an additional way to submit entries. Now is the time to showcase one’s stuff and have the chance to win cold hard cash and a recording session. Submissions may be sent via DVD, VHS or YouTube.
Participants in “Wicked Good Talent,” open to those age 5 and older, may be solo, duet or group acts, which may include singing, dancing, gymnastics, playing an instrument, juggling, baton twirling, comedy, fancy jump roping, unicycling, whatever. To enter, send an entry form along with a DVD, VHS or YouTube of one’s two-minute performance and entry fee of $25 for solo or duet performances or $40 for group performances.
Finalists, who will be chosen from the entries, will compete live at the finals Saturday, May 18, at the Community Little Theatre, 30 Academy St. The 2013 winner of “Wicked Good Talent” will win a trophy, a cash prize ($500), a recording session at The Studio in Portland and performance opportunities. Previous winners include Kristin Korda of Saco, Christopher Camire of Auburn, Hannah Rowell of South Portland and Max Ater of Bath.
To receive an entry form and more information, contact Chris Camire by email at WickedGoodTalent@gmail.com. Deadline for entry is Monday, April 15.
