The date is set and the Theatre booked. So, it would seem that everything is in place. Actually that is not strictly true! What we are missing at this time is the most important part of all…..the STARS of the show!
If you have a relative, child or friend who is on the spectrum and has a great talent that they could share with others then why not get in touch with us? Maybe you yourself are on the spectrum and have a hankering to take to the stage.
Each year we look for a diverse mix of talents from across the spectrum and the country. It is not all about singing and dancing so if you think you can play an instrument and WOW people, perform magic and make Austin disappear or even present a talk on something you have achieved, as the lovely Jo Redman did this year on her Kick-Boxing, then please DO get in touch with us. Don’t presume we won’t be interested in what you do!
All that we ask people to do who are interested in entering themselves or someone they know for ‘Autism’s Got Talent’ is to send us a little Vid/Youtube clip of that person performing so that we can see them when making our decision.
The decision process is VERY difficult for us as we always have way too many to choose from and we do like to make it as diverse as possible. If you are not lucky enough to be chosen please do not take it as a negative. Chances are it will just mean we had too many people doing the same thing or from the same area. Believe me we would LOVE to have EVERYONE but the show would end up being a week long!
As a final note please do remember that ‘Autism’s Got Talent’ is NOT a competition but rather a CELEBRATION of just how talented those on the Autistic Spectrum really can be.
Please send all Vids/Youtube clips to email@example.com or Austin@annakennedyonline.com. Entries will be accepted up until December 31st. The decision process will take place in January 2015.
Get practicing and GET THOSE ENTRIES IN!! GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!
