ACT SETS AUDITIONS FOR
Altoona Community Theatre is sponsoring the first annual Altoona’s Got Talent. Auditions will be on July 26 and 27. ACT judges will pick the “best of the best” to perform on August 7 at the historic Mishler Theatre where special guest judges will select the winners in front of the live audience.
There are three categories in the inaugural year – Dance, Voice (18 and under), Voice (Adult). The top three winners in each category will win cash prizes of $200, $100, and $50. In addition to the cash prizes, the top winner in each voice category will get 30 minutes of studio time to create their very own demo. The top winner in the dance category will receive a DVD recording of their Mishler performance.
“We know Altoona's got talent,” according to Steve Helsel, ACT operations manager. “Here’s a chance to perform with some of the region’s top talents on the stage of the historic Mishler Theatre in front of a big hometown crowd.”
