Mackay's Got Talent has been revamped this year and is now much more than a talent quest.

Rebranded and named “Platform”, the program seeks to identify and develop anyone with aspirations to succeed in the entertainment industry.

Auditions will be held Sunday, February 25, from noon to 4pm, at the Jubilee Community Centre in the Civic Precinct, however, you must register before 3pm.

Video auditions will also be accepted this year.

While it’s open to young musicians and singers; we also want aspiring actors, acrobats, comedians, DJs, magicians – you name it.

There are also development opportunities for budding photographers, set designers, artists, sound technicians, costume designers, directors, film makers, prop masters or anyone with an interest in the backstage business of show business.

Video auditions must be submitted with an accompanying registration form by 4pm Friday, February 23. It is suggested that you include more than one video to show your range of style and skill.

The Platform Showcase Finale will be held on Sunday, April 22, at the MECC.
