Tal­ent urged to have a go


Porirua has plenty of tal­ent and the Fes­ti­val of the El­e­ments is primed to dis­play it.

‘‘It’s a chance for peo­ple to show what they can do,’’ says Sonny Miti, or­gan­iser of the fes­ti­val’s tal­ent quest. ‘‘They can sing and dance and play a mu­si­cal in­stru­ment – even play the spoons if they want to. We know the tal­ent is out there and this is the op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to per­form and demon­strate their skills. And who knows, they could win a prize.’’

Con­tes­tants will go on stage at the Te Rau­paraha Arena, per­form­ing for to­tal prize money of $ 1000. There will be a first prize of $500, a sec­ond of $250 and a third plac­ing worth $125. There will also be a peo­ple’s choice win­ner with a prize of $125.

‘‘ Porirua has heaps of peo­ple with great per­form­ing skills but they don’t al­ways get the op­por­tu­nity to let oth­ers see what they can do,’’ says Meti.

The quest is open to all ages and con­tes­tants will get ev­ery en­cour­age­ment in a friendly and sup­port­ive at­mos­phere, he says.

Pun­ters can en­ter by upload­ing an au­di­tion tape to You Tube and email­ing the link of the video with a brief de­scrip­tion and con­tact de­tails to: fes­ti­val­ofele­ments tal­ent@gmail.com.


Will this be you? Porirua stars in the mak­ing have the op­por­tu­nity to take to the stage at next week’s Fes­ti­val of the El­e­ments by en­ter­ing its tal­ent quest.
