Entries are now being accepted for the 2017 Pancake Day Talent Show. This is your chance to be a part of this year’s newly revamped format for the Talent Show.
Live tryouts for the International Pancake Day Talent Show have returned in 2017, along with other exciting changes. Some of those other changes include:
• Preliminary Show and Finals Show on the same weekend.
• Changes in contestant group act limitations.
• Additional ways for entry form submittal.
The Preliminary Show will take place on Saturday, Feb. 25 at noon with check-in starting at 10 a.m. Twenty-five acts will be picked to compete in the Finals Show the next day, Sunday, Feb. 26, at 3 p.m.
The changes affecting the group act limitations will allow contestants to enter as many acts in the Preliminary Show as they want. A contestant can only be in one solo act, or two duet acts in the Finals Show. A contestant may be in an unlimited number of group acts in the Finals Show, however.
The entry fee has been kept at $35 per act again this year, and 100 percent of the entry fees are used for prize money which is guaranteed to be at least $2,710. There are four ways to enter, mailed (must be postmarked by Monday, Feb. 13); hand delivered, (no later than 5 p.m. today; online or emailed.
