Mossel Bay's Got Talent
MOSSEL BAY NEWS - The popular Mossel Bay's Got Talent show, which has been organised by the Mossel Bay Municipality since 2010, is back by popular demand and the 2013 show will kick off in about a month's time, to enable the youth of the greater Mossel Bay area to showcase their talents and win handsome prizes too.
The auditions will start on Friday, 5 April, and the show will climax with the finals in the Mossel Bay Town Hall on Saturday, 15 June. Mossel Bay's Got Talent will form part of the June 2013 Youth Month celebrations, organised by the municipality.
Prize money has been increased from R10 000 in 2012 for each of the three categories, namely dancing, singing and open (rap, poetry, bands, drama, et cetera) to R12 000 per category in 2013.
Since its inception in 2010, the show has grown in stature and in terms of prize money. In 2012, approximately 195 young people auditioned for the show and more than 2 500 people attended the auditions at the nine venues.
The competition took on a whole new look in 2012, when events on the social ills of drug abuse, alcohol abuse, crime, teenage pregnancies and gangsterism were all included in the programmes to raise awareness of the dangers associated with these ills.
In addition to the prize money that the winners earned in 2012, they and several other competitors were afforded opportunities to market themselves by performing at events, such as the Dias and Proe Mossel Bay festivals, as well as at fundraising functions, churches, schools and the local prison. Some competitors have also performed at the Bravo Lounge at the Garden Route Casino.
The first auditions will be held on Friday, 5 April, at the Great Brak River Community Hall, from 16:00 to 21:00, for the youth of Great Brak River, Friemersheim and Jonkersberg.
The youth from Brandwag, Sonskynvallei, Powertown and Ruiterbos will get their chance on Saturday, 6 April from 18:00 to 20:30, at the Brandwag Community Hall.
The rest of the programme will be made known in due course.
The municipality also invites members of the public who want to volunteer to be on the panel of judges to hand in a complete profile, including details of experience in performing arts, to the Youth Officer of the Municipality, Yolande van Aswegen.
She can be contacted at 044 606 5224 or 082 296 6199 or by e-mail at
10:00 (GMT+2), Sun, 10 March 2013
