For the Antigo Times
Music in the Park will be having an “Amateur Antigo Talent Night” on Thursday, August 25th at City Park. The Antigo Community Theatre is assisting with the event and will be holding auditions on Tuesday, August 16th and Wednesday August 17th at the Volm Theater. Registration is at 4:30 PM with first come then first served and the tryouts beginning at 5:00PM until 6:30 PM. ACT is hoping for a variety of talent to showcase. There will be five age categories: 9 years and under, 10 to 12 years, 13 to 17 years, 18 to 30 years, and 30 to 100+ years. Due to time constraints there will not be a band category. A piano and a sound system with microphones will be provided on the night of the talent show.
There are some guidelines that will need to be followed such as no act will be longer than 4 minutes, no group larger than 8 as well as no lip syncing or karaoke. For more details and restrictions, the guidelines can be picked up at the Antigo Public Library, the Antigo Park and Recreation Office, or at any of the Music in the Park concerts held in the evenings at 6:30PM on Mondays, and Thursdays at City Park, by the pie and ice cream pavilion and donation box. It can also be found online at: antigo-city.org/rec 1; click on the Music, Arts and Culture link.
The “Amateur Antigo Talent Night” will be one of the final performances for the summer concert series of Music in the Park. The Antigo Optimists will have their famous cheese curds and pie for dessert and “Antigo First” will provide sandwiches. For more information call Moira Scupien at 715-350-1683.
