Largs Has Got Talent is back for a fourth year and promises to be bigger and better than ever!
Organisers are looking for applicants of any age with any act, whether that is singing, dancing, fire-eating, hula-hooping, acrobatics or anything else. Acts will perform in front of 500 people for the top prize of £500, as well as lots of other exciting runners-up prizes.
Show director Ryan Moir said: "It's always a very exciting night. The most interesting act we've ever had was a very interesting Marilyn Monroe impersonator. The only one I've ever seen with a beard...".
Last year's winner was the Anthony Squires Band from Gourock, who will return to perform and hand over the cup to the new winner at this year's grand final at Barrfields Theatre on Friday, September 7.
The show is promoted as a fundraising event for Largs Youth Theatre, and over the past four years, profits from the show have helped go to provide subsidised places and pay for additional support needs staff.
And always on hand to help with the competition is River City star Tom Urie, the patron of Largs Youth Theatre, who will be one of three guest judges at the grand final. Previous judges have included TV star Michelle McManus.
Acts have two ways to audition. Free audition slots will be available at the Youth Theatre’s special private tent at Largs Gala Day, National Sports Centre Inverclyde on Saturday, August 18 from 12pm- 5pm. No booking is required; simply show up and perform - first come first served.
