VALLEY FORGE, PA, JANUARY 13, 2010: National Haunters Convention Directors Robert Kocher and Michael Bruner announce the first-ever Haunters Got Talent Contest to be held at the National Haunters Convention (NHC) in the Valley Forge Convention Center April 30-May 2, 2010.
Ten contestants will register to compete in one of two preliminary rounds for selection by haunted entertainment industry celebrity judges for the chance to compete in a final round for honors and prizes in three categories: Most Entertaining Overall, Best Halloween Theme, and People’s Choice. The final round will be held on the morning of May 2, 2010.
All talented convention attendees are encouraged to submit an entry request. Musical, comedy, dramatic, and variety acts must be no more than five minutes in length for consideration. The use of a Halloween theme for the competition is not required but will be favored for selection of the preliminary acts due to the nature of the convention as well as one of the top prize categories. Entrants must register to attend the NHC and may not be current or previous talent booked for the convention.
Chris Handa, Entertainment Director (contact information below) welcomes entries on a first-come/first-reviewed basis. Entries will be screened, placed, and contacted by Chris prior to opening of the convention floor on Friday April 30, 2010. Basic sound, lighting, and stage space will be provided by the NHC Entertainment Staff.
Because the Convention Directors knows the high level of diversity and talent present in the Halloween/Haunt Community, the Convention Staff looks forward to this opportunity to showcase performers with talent and experience that already makes them the “Hardest Working Ghouls in Show Business.” To learn more visit : http://www.HauntersGotTalent.com
