A MAJOR talent show will soon be staged near Whitby – and organisers are looking for people to sign up and audition.
The event is being put on by Talentspotters, an organisation which travels the length and breadth of the country looking for stars in the making.
Talentspotters is hosting a number of high-profile talent shows throughout Britain and will be holding auditions in Scarborough next month.
A spokeswoman said: “If you or your friends have a talent of any kind and your ambition is to perform in front of a large audience, then send in your application form and hurry along to the Scarborough Spa Theatre on Sunday 5 June .
“A variety of acts will be battling it out in front of an experienced panel of adjudicators to gain a much coveted place in the grand show on Sunday 10 July. “The Spa Theatre will then burst into life as numerous successful auditionees take to the stage alongside professionally choreographed dancers as well as a celebrity guest host.”
The event will also give participants the opportunity to be “talent spotted” and further their career as the audience will include agents and contacts from the entertainment industry.
The spokeswoman said: “Our main aim is to provide a much needed platform from which locals can perform their talent in a professionally produced show. “The acts will not only gain experience throughout the audition process, but will acquire the skills needed in the direction and staging of a theatrestyle production.
“This high-energy show will have something for everyone and will be entertainment guaranteed.”
She added that a percentage of the proceeds from the show will be donated to Scarborough-based charity Ellie’s Fund.
