The University of Maine at Fort Kent is seeking the talents of local performers for its annual Campus Community Talent Review planned for December 10, at 7:00 p.m. in the Fox Auditorium.
The review has become a local tradition and brings together some of the region's most gifted performers for an evening of quality entertainment.
Performers will compete for cash prizes in two categories. A first place award of $150 and a second place award of $50 will be given to each of the top performers in the UMFK student and community member competitions.
A panel of local celebrities will serve as judges.
Preference will be given to acts that include accompanied vocal performance, dance routines, and instrumental performances that exhibit adequate planning and rehearsal. All performers must be of high school age or older.
A rehearsal session for all performers will be held in the Fox Auditorium on December 9, from 4:00- 6:00 p.m. Each performer will be given a brief time slot to review technical aspects of their performance.
Available equipment for performance will include a sound system, microphones, cassette and CD players, full or half stage setups, general lighting and karaoke capability. Due to extensive setup time required, bands are unable to participate.
Scott Voisine, director of student services, and Chuck Closser, professor of oral communication and performing arts, will again be the emcees for the talent review adding their own sense of humor and entertainment to the event.
Anyone interested in performing must sign up with Stephanie Cote, associate director of student programming and residential life at 834-7850 no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, December 3.
