Proser­pine’s got tal­ent

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

PROSER­PINE’S Youth Space held its an­nual tal­ent show on Fri­day night as part of its monthly Fri­day night ac­tiv­ity pro­gram.

The ini­tia­tive be­gan in Jan­uary this year af­ter the cen­tre recog­nised the fur­ther need of youth ac­tiv­i­ties and en­gage­ment dur­ing the week­end.

Some youth used the tal­ent show to help face their fears of per­form­ing in public and other sim­ply en­joyed the thought of having a go.

The even­ing fea­tured many spe­cial guests that per­formed and sup­ported the acts in­clud­ing vol­un­teer Youth Space com­mit­tee pres­i­dent Phoebe Tucker, Jan Waet­ford from Whit­sun­day Cri­sis Coun­selling, lo­cal mu­si­cian Melissa Saun­ders and in­spir­ing lo­cal DJ ‘Shadow Boy’.

Proser­pine Youth Space as­sis­tant co-or­di­na­tor Emily Hooper said the even­ing was a chance for youth to show off their tal­ent and en­ter­tain oth­ers.

“Over­all we all had a very en­ter­tain­ing night, we would like to say a huge thank you to our spe­cial guest and to the par­ents that came along to sup­port.

Youth Space is proud to pro­vide a safe, pos­i­tive and en­gag­ing en­vi­ron­ment for the youth in the area,” she said.

Fri­day’s show in­cluded an ar­ray of ver­sa­tile per­for­mances but even­tu­ally triple threat Sean O’Neill and singer Sarah Schulz took out both prizes.

Sean wowed au­di­ences with a per­for­mance in­volv­ing a gui­tar, key­board and vo­cals while Sarah melted hearts with her im­pres­sive vo­cal range.
