Bosbury's Got Talent 2018 - The Search Begins!
Yes, it's that time again! Dust off your microphones, polish your dancing shoes, teach your dog new tricks and practise those hilarious one-liners - Bosbury's Got Talent is BACK for a third year.
ITV executives have been approached, David Walliams and Amanda Holden have already been booked, and even though attempts to contact Simon Cowell have unfortunately so far failed (his mobile phone always seems to be engaged whenever Mrs. Kaye tries to ring through), we can confirm that auditions in each class will take place on Monday 26th March, ready for the exciting Live Final due to be held on the last day before the Easter Holidays (Thursday 29th March).
Entries are open to individual acts, duet performances, small groups and even large groups, and just about anything goes in terms of what you can perform - singing, dancing, instrument playing, gymnastics, magic tricks, juggling, football skills, hula hoop acts, puppet shows, impersonations, baking the staff cakes and making them cups of tea and coffee in the shortest time possible... the choice is yours!*
Can you be as original as Joe's 'build a tower out of Lego bricks while doing press-ups' act from two years ago? As funny as Oliver's third place-winning comedy routine ("What's the difference between Brussels sprouts and bogeys? Children will eat bogeys!")? As polished as Henry cornet and Ollie's drumming performances from twelve months ago which netted them second and third place respectively? As breathtaking and shocking as the slightly gruesome yet magnificent shadow act performed by the Class 5 winners of the inaugural year of the competition? Or as entertaining and educational as the Cleopatra girls who triumphed in last year's contest to win £100,000 between them and a spot on this year's Royal Variety Performance?
All we ask is that you be creative, be brave and try your best. Any music which you wish to use during your acts this year is also requested by the show's backstage crew to be burned on to a CD first to avoid any of the technical hiccups which occurred during the filming of the Live Final during the first year of the competition.
Good luck - the judges cannot wait to witness another amazing spectacle of brilliant Bosbury talent! Who will be this year's winner?
* DISCLAIMER: In the interests of health and safety, our school fire warden Mr. Ponter does request that any acts involving flaming hoops or fire juggling are avoided. Thank you.
