FROM indie pop to punk and country rock, this Saturday’s Moyne’s Got Talent competition will have it all.
After an exhaustive audition process, 32 acts will put everything into their one shot to win the judges’ favour at the Lighthouse Theatre on Saturday night.
The line-up of performers, aged from 12 to 25, includes seasoned performers such as Koroit country-rock singer Kayla Dwyer, who has her own CD and performed at the Tamworth Country Music Festival, to first-time performers before a big audience.
Some are bands formed by schoolmates, others have honed their talents at school musicals and with the Holiday Actors.
Among them is Emmanuel College student Angela Kenna, 16, who will sing a solo from a musical. She is usually out front of indie pop band Say Please and will also be in this month’s Holiday Actors’ performance of A Chorus Line and Emmanuel College’s production of Annie.
Moyne Shire Council’s youth development officer Geraldine Edar-Ralph said competition will have both senior and junior sections. The senior winner takes home $500 and the junior winner $300.
The top 10 acts will have the opportunity to receive professional mentoring and record their act in Melbourne as part of the Kool Skools project.
