Cavern Talent Show Auditions

Welcome all to a new event called the Cavern Talent Show that will be held on Saturday, October 10th at 13:00 KI Time.

This talent show specifically designed for people who are not afraid of the mic, so don't be shy!

What is the talent show, you may ask? It's a showcase where you can create skits, tell a story, conduct a trivia quiz, make impersonations, sing, play an instrument, or anything you like.

What the organizers are looking for is variety; not just different styles of the same genre, like music, but different kinds of talents all over the artistic spectrum.

Skits will have to be kept to 5 minutes maximum to keep things rolling.  If you're interested, auditions are being held every Sunday, from August 9th to September 13th, running from 17:00 KI time to 19:00 in the Cavern Events hood.

Cavern Events Hood
Date of the event: 
Repeats every week every Sunday until Mon Sep 14 2015 . Also includes Tue Oct 06 2015.
