Spotlight on Talent, a regional talent competition that’s celebrating its 40th year, is accepting applications for this year’s contest.
The deadline to apply is Feb. 9. Auditions have been set for Feb. 25.
The event, presented by the Heritage Arts Center Association, gives young performers a chance to show off their talents, as well as to compete for cash prizes, trophies, and a scholarship that is awarded to the most outstanding senior.
Hundreds of performers will audition in front of a panel of professional judges, who select the finalists. There are singers, dancers and instrumentalists, and competitors can enter as solo acts, as part of a group, or both. The competition also is divided by age groups.
Finalists from the audition will perform in two shows, set for March 25.
The performances typically attracts audiences numbering into the hundreds.
Over the years, the annual competition has gone on — even in the midst of COVID-19, without a stage or audience.
This year, the event is scheduled to take the stage at the Center for the Arts at Wesley Chapel, at 30651 Wells Road, in Wesley Chapel.
