Carlsbad City Library invites students going into 7th through 12th grades to show off their skills in the library’s eighth annual Teen Talent Shows. On July 12, the Library hosts its singing competition; on July 26, a dancing competition; and on Aug. 9, a creative competition for skits, magic, instrumental music acts and talents other than singing and dancing. All performances begin at 7 p.m. in Carlsbad City Library’s Ruby G. Schulman Auditorium, located at 1775 Dove Lane. Performances are free and open to the public so come cheer on tomorrow’s stars!
“Our Teen Talent Shows are a special highlight of the library’s Summer Reading Program,” said Teen Librarian Darin Williamson. “Over the past eight years, we’ve provided a supportive environment where audiences have enjoyed Irish dancers, guitarists, pianists, comedians and hundreds of other talented teens. This year’s Summer Reading Program theme for teens is ‘Own the Night’ and we expect nothing less from North County teens.”
Registration for the talent shows is free and required by the Tuesday before the scheduled show. Performances must be less than six minutes long. To register or for more information, email email@example.com or call 760-602-2058.
The competitors will be judged by a three-person panel. Prizes will be awarded to all contestants, and the top three finishers will receive special prizes.
The Teen Talent Shows are held as part of the Library’s annual Summer Reading Program, which runs through Aug. 3 and features reading incentives, activities and fun for all ages.
The Teen Talent Shows are made possible by the Carlsbad Library and Arts Foundation’s Robert H. Gartner Cultural Endowment Fund.
