March 20, 2016 – Wanna be a star? On Saturday, April 16, the Friends of MCTV will host the 7th Annual Midland Shining Stars Talent Show to be televised on MCTV Cable Channel 191, AT&T U-verse Channel 99, and viewable online. Performance tapings will take place in MCTV’s studio between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Entrants will be given up to 30 minutes to set up, perform, and tear down for a 3- to 5-minute performance during the show (time will be dependent on the number of entries). MCTV is looking for a variety of skills: singing, dancing, playing an instrument, creating a hand-drawn masterpiece, juggling – it’s up to you!
The viewing public will vote for their favorite Midland Shining Star by e-mail or via Facebook. Whoever gains the most votes will receive fame and glory with an MCTV-189 message board mention, Facebook posts, and posting of the winning performance on YouTube. They will also be given an opportunity to perform live at MCTV's Honors Night in November.
If you have a talent you would like to share with the community, call MCTV to schedule a time for your performance. Time slots are limited, so book your spot now. The deadline to sign up is Friday, April 15.
The talent show is open to Midland County residents with proof of ID. All ages are welcome, though parental/guardian consent will be required for those under 18. Due to time constraints of this production, acoustic acts or bands with minimal equipment are preferred. Performances will need to be approved when scheduling a time slot.
MCTV is located on the lower level of the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library, 1710 W. St. Andrews Road. For more information about the talent show, call 989-837-3474, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit MCTV on Facebook.
