Move over Simon Cowell and Britain’s Got Talent , the only talent contest worth entering is Razz’s Got Talent, and what’s more there will be no Mr Nasty, just a fantastic prize of a scholarship to attend Razzamataz Chester completely free of charge for a whole year.
Supporting local talent and giving back to the community to help young people with their performing arts training is high on the agenda for the theatre school, which is backed by Dragons’ Den Duncan Bannatyne.
The opportunity to see what talent Chester has is also incredibly exciting and giving existing students the chance to hone their skills and shine individually in front of a panel of industry judges is a fantastic motivator too.
Claire Larkin, principal of Razzamataz Chester, said: “Razz’s Got Talent is a really fun way for children to enter a talent contest in a safe and caring environment.
“We only give really constructive and positive feedback because we know it takes a lot of courage and determination to enter a talent competition and we want this experience to be a really positive one that they can learn from.”
Razz’s Got Talent is open to all children and young people living in Chester from the age of 6 to 17. The judges are looking for raw talent and a special something that sets them apart from the competition. Razzamataz teaches all three disciplines, dance, drama and singing, to create ‘triple threat performers’ so children taking part can showcase one or all of these skills. Applicants should prepare either a song, dance or drama piece or a mixture of all three that lasts no longer than three minutes.
