• Special to the L&T
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; and
• Additional ways for entry form submittal.
The Preliminary Show will take place at noon, Saturday, Feb. 25, with check-in starting at 10 a.m.. Twenty-five acts will be picked to compete in the Finals Show the next day, 3 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 26.
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. One-hundred 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, which must be postmarked by Monday, Feb. 13; hand delivered by 5 p.m. on Friday Feb. 17; online; or via email.
