St. Joe's Got Talent Timeline
Submission deadline: February 11

St. Joe's Got Talent brings a new way to enter the competition. Contestants can submit their own tape, allowing those who cannot attend the open tapings to compete! It's not too early to start creating/submitting your own tape or perfecting your routine, so dust off your dance shoes and hula hoops and start composing!


For the 2015 competition, the open taping dates are February 10 and 12 at Potter Theater, Missouri Western State University. Tapings will go from 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m., and all talents are accepted at this location. For those who cannot come to the open taping dates, submit your own tape (ONLY .mpg or .avi files accepted) to the Allied Arts Council by February 11, at 2 p.m.


There were several groups that wanted to participate, but couldn't make the taping dates. We hope that by allowing contestants to submit their own tape we allow more groups and individuals to participate,� said Ashley Jones, Allied Arts Council Marketing Coordinator.


As in previous years, there is no age limit, all groups are welcome to participate and you do not have to be from St. Joseph. Preregistration is recommended. The entry fee is $10 for acts with 1-3 performers; groups of 4 or more is $15.


St. Joe's Got Talent is a family event, so acts must be family friendly. Each act has 3 minutes for taping, so time your performance accordingly. Any act over 3 minutes will be stopped due to time constraints. These same rules apply to the submitted tapes: all must be family friendly and no more than 3 minutes in length. Like last year, KQ2 will post acts online where viewers vote for their favorite act. Acts will be edited to or about 1 minute before posted online.


The final competition has moved to Saturday this year. On March 21, at 7:00 p.m., the top voted acts perform live on the Missouri Theater stage. Each act will have up to five minutes to perform before judges and a live audience. Again, strict time adherence will be enforced.


Two awards will be handed out that evening: the Critics Award, as determined by the judges and the People's Choice Award. The winner of the People's Choice award will be determined by the most money contributed, so bring your friends, family and entire fan club to vote with their change, dollars, and checkbooks!


Admission to St. Joe's Got Talent is $5 for adults, and children 12 and younger are $3. All proceeds from the night's event benefit the 2015 Arts Fund Campaign. The Arts Fund supports a wide variety of arts activities.
