LEWISTON — Maine’s Got Talent will hold three open auditions for Maine-based singers, bands and musicians of all kinds for a chance to be selected as one of 10 performers to compete for cash prizes during their 2019 event.

Auditions will be held:

• Saturday, Jan. 20, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Empire Live Music & Events, 575 Congress St., Portland; and

• Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 26 and 27, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Community Little Theatre, 30 Academy St., Auburn.

Auditions are open to all performing artists who live in Maine, including out-of-state students attending Maine schools. Participants must be 16 or older. Auditions are first come, first served. Bands should bring light set-up. Vocalists should bring soundtrack. This is a live audition. 

The auditions will secure 10 musical performers and two alternates who will compete for $750, $500 and $250 during the eighth annual Maine’s Got Talent on March 9, held at the Gendron Franco Center.

Past musicians have ranged from eight-person house bands to lone acoustic singer-songwriters, large-scale collegiate a cappella groups to teen singers with ambition.

Maine’s Got Talent is the annual fundraising event for Lewiston-based nonprofit Sandcastle Clinical & Educational Services, which provides a full range of clinical and educational services to individuals of all ages and abilities, and L/A Hearing Center. Modeled after popular shows “American Idol” and “America’s Got Talent,” a panel of three local celebrity judges and audience feedback determine winners of first-, second- and third-place cash prizes in front of a live audience.
