Acts of all types, including singing, dancing, dramatic reading, and comedy are welcome to try out and can be up to four minutes long. To register, contact the West Side Active Adult Community Center at 570-961-1592, ext 102 to obtain a registration form. Forms must be returned to the Center by April 22. There is a registration fee of $10 for acts of up to three people and $20 for acts of four or more. Those who register will be invited to audition on April 29 at 6:00 p.m. or April 30 at 9:30 a.m.
During the show, a panel of celebrity guest judges, including Frank Gervasi from The Poets and Evie Rafalko McNulty, will score the acts and award cash prizes of $500, $300, and $200. Tickets to the show are $10 in advance or $15 at the door and can be purchased at www.uncnepa.org/events.
