Seeking local talent

The search is on once again for talent in Wairarapa as entries open for this year’s Talent Wairarapa competition.

This would be the third year the talent quest had run in Wairarapa.

Carterton Rotary is once again looking for the next “big thing” in the region, whether its singing, gymnastics, juggling, ventriloquism, comedy, or something else.

“We are looking for everything,” Vickie Pickering from Carterton Rotary said.

After last year’s competition success, she said it was back better than ever.

“People have got the talent and we want to see it.”

The competition is open to all ages, with categories for 14 and Under and Over-14s.

It could be groups, bands, skits, or a party trick – there are no restrictions to acts as long as they are appropriate.

She said they wanted to get people in the region up on stage and see what talent was around.

The aim is to get people on the stage, grow in confidence and then for the finale “it is like a proper performance” with all the bells and whistles.

For the 14 and Under category, there is a top prize of $500.

For the Over-14s, there is a winner’s prize of $1000.

Pickering said it was great to see all the talent last year and she was looking forward to seeing who would be entering this year.

Entries cost $5 and are open until March 31 before the heats in May 16.
