Lights, camera, ACTION! Frisco residents and all FISD students are invited to enter a community-wide performing arts competition. This is an opportunity to showcase the amazing talent of Frisco students while recognizing their hard work and encouraging them to continue to develop their talent.
Frisco’s Got Talent is a community-wide event designed to showcase the myriad of talented students in Frisco,” Frisco Youth Theatre Managing Director Melinda Bellatti said. “Frisco Youth Theatre is pleased to partner with Frisco Association of the Arts to recognize talented students in our community in an effort to encourage them to continue to develop their gifts and skills.”
Frisco ISD students and Frisco residents need to submit a video entry by July 31 of a musical or performing arts performance. This can be an instrumental performance, a vocal singing performance, a musical theatre performance, or a dance performance. No spoken word, sketch comedy, or acting will be accepted, and performances must be 3-5 minutes in length. Submissions exceeding 5 minutes will be disqualified.
The top 20 entries, as selected by an independent panel, will advance to compete in the Competition Showcases on August 26 and 27.
All Competition Showcases will take place at Frisco Discovery Center, 8004 Dallas Parkway, Frisco, TX 75034.
