Calling all local performing talent

By GLEN PORTEOUSglenp@gladstoneobserver.dyndns.org

THE call has gone out to Gladstone's most talented musicians and stage performers for this year's Harbour Festival talent quest.

This gala event will be staged on Tuesday, April 11 and the unique entertainment will be fun for all the family, with $1500 in prize money up for grabs.

There are prizes for first, second and third in different categories for both junior and senior participants. Events organiser Judy Whicker said they usually had a good turn- out for the Harbour Festival talent quest.

'Usually there is a waiting list for the talent quest and we have to cull it, but this year I am a bit disappointed with the number of entrants so far as there are some great prizes,' Ms Whicker said.

It doesn't matter what the individual's talent is, from reciting a Shakespearean soliloquy to playing tablespoons on their knees, or being a non-professional singer.'

Last year's winners were Synchronised Sensations and they proved to be a big hit with the spectators.

If anyone is interested, entry forms are available from the Harbour Festival Events office located at the Marina or phone 4972 5111.

If anyone is unable to make it into the Marina office there are other ways to get in contact.

'We have a website and if anyone wants to download an entry form they can do so,' Ms Whicker said.

Cost is only $11 and competitors are invited to come along and have an experience of a lifetime.
