Published: 04-Oct-2017

The WaiYouth Centre Stage event is coming soon to Waimakariri.  This iconic event is in its 4th year and WaiYouth are putting the call out for all budding singers, dancers, bands, magicians, comedians or anyone aged 12 – 24 years that want to show off their artistic talents.  Centre Stage will take place on 27 October 2017 in Rangiora Town Hall.

If you think you have what it takes, just simply submit the application form along with a short video of your act.  You can find all the information about applying on the WaiYouth Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/WAIYouth 20171004_Centre Stage

The prizes are awesome. First place takes home not only $1000, but also a fantastic prize sponsored by Acoustic Wave and Sweet As Media.  They will gift to the winner three hours of studio time to record their performance – a fantastic prize as well as an opportunity to work with industry experts.  Second place will receive $500, and third place picks up $250.  It’s well worth entering.

Sophie Marsh from WaiYouth says, “This a youth organised event and it’s all about celebrating our young talent in the district.  WaiYouth want to give our young people the chance to shine and show the wider community what a wealth of talent we have all around us.  We are really excited to see the entries this year as the mix of talent is so wide and varied – it’s always a hard job to choose the entries never mind the winners!”

The WaiYouth group will review all the entries received and they will pick the best 20 acts to perform on the night.  The acts will be judged by a range of professionals from the performance industry who will have the challenging task of picking their Centre Stage winners for 2017.
