Arlington’s Got Talent, the annual talent show hosted by Leadership Arlington, is now accepting applications to perform.
Applicants need to “like” the event’s Facebook page, fill out an online application and submit a video link along with it. Competitors have to be at least 13 years old, audition videos must be no more than three minutes long — performances during the competition can be up to five minutes — and be free of “nudity or obscene language/gestures.” The deadline for applying is Sept. 11.
The competition itself will be on Wednesday, Oct. 29 at Clarendon Ballroom (3185 Wilson Blvd), with a social starting at 6:30 p.m. before the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Last year’s show had more than 200 people in attendance, Leadership Arlington said in a press release. Tickets for the show are $30 online and $40 at the door. Hors d’oeuvres will be served and there will be a cash bar.
This is the third annual Arlington’s Got Talent, and competitors across the D.C. area are allowed to participate. The first ever winner, Margot McDonald, toured Europe and played at Artisphere and the Lubber Run Amphiteatre this summer.
