Sacred Heart School for the Arts to host “Step into the Spotlight” Talent Competition for Ages 6-18

Step Into the Spotlight is the first annual open-stage competition for talent from across Kentuckiana to contend for cash prizes and exposure to opportunities to further share their gifts. Youth aged 6-18 may audition, receiving two minutes to showcase their special talents.

All auditions will take place at Sacred Heart School for the Arts, Angela Hall – Building 17 (first floor – recital hall) from Aug. 31 through Sept. 2. They will provide a piano and a CD player for use. Participants should bring any other items needed. A non-refundable registration fee of $10 is due at the time of your audition. Please arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled audition time, allowing time for setup if needed. Only the performer will be allowed in the room during auditions.

The Final Showcase will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Sept. 29 at The Ursuline Arts Center, 3113 Lexington Road. The top 16 acts chosen will be notified via email by Sept. 9. Participants chosen cannot change their act. Final show participants will be given five minutes on stage to perform their full act. Winners in each age group will be chosen by a panel of judges. All audience members will have the opportunity to vote for the People’s Choice Award. Cash prizes are awarded per act, not per participant. For more information, call 502.897.1816.
