Sign up now for 'Orcas Has Talent'

It’s time to get your act together!
The wildly popular “Orcas Has Talent” show will light up the Orcas Center stage on Feb. 9, 2013 where the audience will vote for their favorite “act.” The winner will once again take home a $500 cash prize.
Auditions will be held on Jan. 19 but acts must sign up in December.
"For planning purposes we always need to know early who will be participating in the show,” says Donna Laslo event producer.  “We are encouraging artists to start now so they will be ready for their January audition. Five hundred dollars is a lot of money and we want people to really go for it."
The always fantastic “Orcas Has Talent Junior” competition featuring the up and coming talented Orcas youth will be held on  Jan. 19 at 2 p.m. The winner will be awarded a $50. cash prize and the chance to compete with the adults.
Back by popular demand is the “Special Talents” video.  The video viewed during a voting round with seven minute display of locals showing off their hilarious and often amazing “special” talents.  A few from previous years included: a person who’s eyes go in two different directions, a singing dentist and his assistant and even talented animals.
