KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Coming up soon in Kalamazoo will be the auditions for an annual teen talent show. Organized by the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo, the United Teens Talent auditions are set for June fourth through the 15th. The organization's Beth McCann says that they're looking for teenagers with a variety of special skills.
"This is one of my favoruite programs that the Arts Council does," McCann told WKZO. "If you are a teen between the ages of 13 and 19 and live in Kalamazoo County, we want to see you. We've been doing this program for ten years now that showcases all of the fabulous talent. Bands, singers, dancers, spoken word, musicians, jugglers....You name it."
Auditions are being held at a variety of locations around the community on various days, and you can see them at the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo's website. The teens selected for the program from the auditions will receive professional coaching ahead of the actual show on August ninth at the Civic Theater. They'll also get a chance to win 15 hundred dollars.
