On the Road to Stardom: Hudson Youth Have Talent

Everyone knows there is talent to spare in Hudson but here's a chance to prove it. On the Road to Stardom: Hudson Youth Have Talent is a talent show sponsored by Youth Action Hudson (formerly Community Action).

The show is scheduled for March 20 at the Hudson High School auditorium. The show is open to any high school student, grades 9-12. Registration is due by Feb. 18 and auditions are the following week.

In order to participate in the talent show, all participants must be available to audition between 6-10 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 24, for musical acts and Thursday, Feb. 26, for drama, variety and dance. All acts must register by Feb. 18. If members of an act are not available at the designated time, they must submit their audition on video by the day and time of their designated audition.

Auditions will be judged by two adults and two students. All participants will be notified of their selection a week after auditions.

Registration forms are available at Principal Ed Lucas' office at HHS. The completed forms should be returned to his office with the $10 registration fee (per act) no later than Feb. 18.

Acts may sign up for on-stage rehearsals at the HHS auditorium for March 3 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. A mandatory dress and technical rehearsal will be March 13 at 6:30 p.m.

On the evening of the performance, Friday, March 20, doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7. Admission for the show is $10. Awards will be made in each category, and an Audience Choice Award will be determined by applause.
