Top talent abounds
Thursday, 10th March, 2016
The Broken Hill Talent night organisers have closed their books on acts as the overwhelming response has forced the program to be extended.
“It’s been amazing,” said host Laurie White.
“We had been hoping for 15 acts with a mix of junior and senior talent but we have 20 now and the quality is out of this world.”
The evening at the Civic Centre tomorrow night will be a “family night out”.
“We have a fabulous collection of singers, dancers and performers and with over $2500 in prizemoney, competition will be stiff,” Laurie said.
There will be a special award worth $500 where the audience will vote for their favourite act.
One of the highlights of the night will be a 20-minute set by William Mafi who has entertained locals for years as either Tina Turner or Shirley Bassey.
Other entertainers include Sharna Burcher who has just returned from Tamworth where she spent time at the Country Music Academy.
“There is plenty of quality on stage and I’m just so excited,” Laurie said.
“In the junior section, we will have students from Broken Hill High, Willyama and Burke Ward performing.
“We really wanted to include our young talent in the night and give them room to shine.”
Tickets cost adults $20 each, pensioner, concessions and students $10 and children Under 12 are $5.
The tickets are available from the St Pats office in Crystal Street or phone 80 877 550.
There will be food on sale and the bar will be operating.
