The monthly Wealthy Theatre series, "New Talent Night," will enjoy its half-year anniversary on September 27.  The series is moving to a new time slot (6PM) two hours earlier than the previous start time.

"This time slot is a response to the continued growth of this series, which has evolved into a hybrid between 'American Idol' and 'Evening at the Apollo,' said Theatre Director Erin Wilson.  "We've added local celebrity judges, audience participation and voting, children's performances, more categories and a slick multimedia presentation.

"The audience has grown with the series - we have families, seniors and younger children attending alongside the kids in their late teens, who've been with us from the start."

The series features competitive dance, vocal and hip-hop performances - along with the occasional folk singer, comedian, and "in August we had a young boy play an electric guitar solo from a U2 song, which is an ambitious thing!" Wilson said.

Auditions are open to the public and take place Saturdays at 3PM at Wealthy Theatre Annex, 1110 Wealthy SE.  Please check the online calendar for dates (
