Search for a star at St Anthony’s

A NEW competition has been launched in Craigavon called Search For A Musical Star.

The winner will be given the chance to perform in a musical and also to make a professional CD recording of the winning song courtesy of Mogul Studios.

Auditions for the competition take place in St Anthony’s Centre on Saturday from 1.15pm to 2.30pm and Monday from 7.30pm to 8.30pm and again next Saturday (April 16) from 1.15pm to 2.30pm and Sunday (April 17) from 6pm to 7.30pm. If the dates and times don’t suit then please contact the show producer Kieran Corr on 3831 6496.

Kieran said: “The competition is open to all ages and we welcome solo singers, duets, etc. At the audition process you have to sing a song from a musical and if you qualify for the grand final on Sunday, May 8 the act will have to dress up as a musical star and perform the song from a musical of their choice.

“You could be Danny or Sandy from Grease, Christine from Phantom of the Opera, Belle from Beauty and The Beast, Pocahontas or Annie. The list is endless.

“This is an open competition and you do not have to be a member of any drama group to enter this show and if you happen to be a member of a drama group you are still more than welcome.”

Mr Corr concluded: “This competition is an opportunity for local people to show off the talent that we have within the borough of Craigavon and give them a chance to perform live on stage. I would like to thank Jonathan McGuinness and Richard Lappin from Mogul Studios for all their help to date with the concept of this new competition.”
