The Effingham County Fair is seeking local talent to participate in the Talent Show at the Fair.  The night for the Talent Show has been changed to the first Saturday, this year August 3, rather than on Sunday night.

Open auditions will be held at the Ron Diehl Center at Hendelmeyer Park on Wednesday, June 26 from 5:30-8:00pm.  This year's show will be limited to 16 acts.  The Talent Show is open to all Effingham County residents who are 21 years old or younger.

The organizers are looking for a wide variety of talent for this year's show.  All types of talent are welcome--comedy, juggling, playing the trash cans, mime, singing, dancing, acro-jazz, ballet, tumbling, playing an instrument, dueling banjos, hula hooping or even playing the spoons--or something totally original.  Each act must be age-appropriate.

You're asked to pre-register for an audition time by contacting Kathy Peters at 217-663-7809.  There is a $10 entry fee if selected to perform for the Show.  For more information, contact Diana Nuxoll at 217-821-5298.
