Take the Stage talent showcase at Cessnock Performing Arts Centre

Youth Week talent showcase 'Take the Stage' will be held at Cessnock Performing Arts Centre this Friday night.

Take The Stage gives local young people aged 12 to 25 the opportunity to showcase their talents in front of their peers and a crowd.

Performances could include anything from dancing, singing, instrumentals, solo acts, duets, drama, circus or comedy. Entrants held a rehearsal at the CPAC last Tuesday, and are also offered coaching before the night.

Youth Off The Streets founder Father Chris Riley said the organisation is proud to host the event.

“Youth Off The Streets has been working with young people in the Hunter Valley for over 10 years, and we know that events like this are great for giving young people the confidence and opportunity to perform for their friends and family,” Fr Riley said.

“Performance and expression are a big part of helping our young people grow, and when young people are given these opportunities we encourage them to take part.”

Take the Stage will run from 6pm to 9pm Friday and entry is free.
