Youth In Performing Arts (YIPA) will hold four variety concerts at Laycock Street Theatre from May 24-27.
“The talent seems just to get better and better.
“Some of these young performers need to be seen to be believed,” said YIPA’s Director, Ms Karen Morrow.
“There is something for all ages in every one of our concerts.
“This year’s YIPA concerts offer a great variety of young talent between the ages of 11-21 years old, including vocalists, dancers, bands, instrumentalists, drama, magic and some combinations of those genres.
“More than 40 per cent of this year’s performers are newcomers to YIPA and the quality just keeps on rising,” Ms Morrow continued.
“YIPA is very appreciative of the support we get from our local businesses.
This year, YIPA will see our young performers applying for approximately $15,000 in scholarships and encouragement awards.
“We love being able to offer these awards to help young performers get a start in what could be a lifelong career in the performing arts industry,” she added.
