Those seeking to entertain with a family-friendly act are welcome to audition June 20 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the St. George Recreation Center (285 South 400 East).

Those selected have a chance to be named the next “St. George Star.”

“Each year, we’re delighted to showcase a wide array of local entertainers,” said Talent Show Coordinator Marianne Hamilton. “We encourage anyone who likes to perform to audition for the show. This is always a wonderful part of the Independence Day experience in St. George.”

Each act cannot exceed more than four minutes, and performers should have their own instruments and any needed background tracks. Audio support will be provided. Those interested in auditioning must register in advance and pay a $4 registration fee. Registration closes on June 20 at noon.
