Whether you are an individual act, in a group, a performer or an artist, the Residence Hall Association and the Activities & Cultural Events Board invite any and all interested to take part in this year’s Pacific’s Got Talent show.
Pacific’s Got Talent will be held on May 6 in the Taylor Meade Auditorium from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
There will be free food and the opportunity to win free shirts throughout the night. Voting for the best performance and best art piece will happen at the end of the show. The winner of the art portion will receive a $50 award. The winner of the performance portion will receive a $125 award and second place will receive a $75 reward.
Senior Dion Solon, freshman Itzel Chavez and freshman Riley Peterson were all fast tracked to compete in Pacific’s Got Talent after being voted the winners at the last Open Mic Night.
“I’m always nervous about performances; it’s scary getting up in front of people and I’m always hoping they don’t judge me too hard. However, Pacific has a very forgiving audience, and it’s easy to fall in love with performing for them.” Said Chavez.
“For Pacific’s Got Talent, my friend Susannah Nevarez is playing guitar for me, so this time I can’t embarrassingly forget the chords of the song. We’re really excited to perform for everyone!”
Junior Andie Harrison, a potential performer said Pacific’s Got Talent is always fun, which is exactly the point of the event. People are mostly there to showcase themselves as opposed to winning according to Harrison. “Winning wouldn’t be so bad, either,” Harrison said.
Those interested in performing must attend one of two rehearsal screenings from 7 to 10 p.m. on May 2 or from 8 to 10 p.m. on May 5. All performers will need to arrive at 6:30 p.m. on the day of the event, and sign-ups for Pacific’s Got Talent close on April 15.
Final submissions for artists has been extended to April 22. Submissions will be showcased the week before Pacific’s Got Talent in the Taylor Meade Auditorium.
