Coast youth definitely have their share of talent! Five locals took to the stage last month for a hilarious production of Rockin’ Robin, thanks to St Patrick’s College.

The time and commitment of all involved was significant. Including staff, who selected and guided the production since August last year. A big thank you to everyone involved.

Now in June, the Cooloola Coast Youth Activity Project  is calling out for nominations for the 2018 Cooloola’s Got Talent showcase, held at the Cooloola Coast Community Complex on Saturday 23.

If you’ve been inspired by the Britain’s Got Talent telly show, this is your chance to get up and give show business a go! Award categories include, Laughed My Chops Off, Sensational Style, Delightful Delivery and a major $100 cash prize for, Brought the House Down!

With such a broad category range, you can get creative with your act, don’t be shy, be daring. Nominations are free, open to age 18 and under and your act must be able to be performed on an indoor stage.

Remember, acts don’t actually have to contain any talent! Sing, dance, play music, get a comedy act together, display your physical feats or get up and do something never seen before.

President Jess Milne explained, “There is so much hidden talent in this area so it will be awesome to have it showcased onstage.

“YAP aims to encourage and develop confidence, I feel there’s no better way than to get the local youth doing something they love.”

Doors open at 6pm and the showcase kicks off at 6.30pm. Entry is $2 (under 12’s, $1) which includes a lucky door ticket. There will be food and drinks available on the night.

Take time out to support the next generation and cheer on the acts. See you there!
