Auditions for the fifth annual Chautauqua's Got Talent were held at Wing City Grille in Lakewood on Tuesday evening. Area residents showed their skills for 1 minute each in hope of securing a spot at the countywide talent competition.
A second round of auditions will be held at Wing City Grille in Fredonia on Tuesday, Jan. 28. Registration starts at 5 p.m., and auditions begin at 7 p.m. Auditioning hopefuls are to be prepared to offer a sample of their talent for approximately 1 minute, and bring a parent or guardian if they're under 18.
This contest welcomes singers, dancers, magicians, comedians and other performers of all ages to compete for at least $500 cash, a promotional website and dinner once a month for a year at Wing City Grille. This contest will have a judges' panel that will offer constructive criticism, but the audience will decide the winner.
