PHILIPSBURG – Posters have started circulating this week inviting St. Maarten’s youth to audition for the TelCell Breakthrough 2016 event.
Organizers of the annual TelCell Breakthrough Talent Search say registration is now available online for the first time since auditions began for the first show four years ago.
St. Maarten youth can now head to www.btsignup.xtratight.com on their computers, tablets or mobile phones to announce their talent, and officially sign up for auditions, which will take place at the Cultural Center, on Back Street, Saturday, August 13.
According to event coordinator Angel Richardson, those selected from the auditions will go forward to the TelCell Breakthrough annual show at the Maho Casino Royale on October 1.
“Our youth are very tech savvy, so navigating through their devices and filling the required registration form will be a breeze,” said Richardson.
She said at some time in the future, and as the growing number of talented youth continues to grow, auditions may also be submitted online.
Richardson is expecting another large number of persons to show up for auditions in August, especially with the new online registration service now available.
