Last chance to audition for international showcase

2018-07-04 06:01

LAST calls for the International Arts Talent Showcase (IATS) are underway, giving talented singers, models, actors and dancers the opportunity to be scouted by top international agencies.

The final auditions in Port Elizabeth will take place at the Opera House on Saturday, July 7.

Every year the IATS helps local entertainers realise their dreams by providing them a platform to showcase their talent, as well as to hear testimony from those that have gone before that going international is not impossible.

With Just You Artist and Model Management celebrating 10 years in the industry and recently having opened doors in the Big Apple, the desire to impress is blazing. However, IATS is not a competition, it’s a platform. Its primary focus is on arts education, which allows longevity in the marketplace.

Started by Elsubie Verlinden, the IATS serves as the South African leg of the Applause Rising Talent Showcase (ARTS), which is held in Orlando, Florida every year.

Founded by Kim Myers, participants who make it through to the IATS – to be held at Silverstar Casino later this year – will audition for the international talent scout with the prospect of being afforded a slot at the ARTS in 2019.

Moreover, actors will also audition in front of casting director Rhavynn Drummer, who makes her second appearance in South Africa for the IATS.

Drummer is an independent casting agent, booking for world-renowned production hou-ses, such as Tyler Perry Studios.

To enter for the auditions, contact director of admissions, Elouise Janse van Rensburg on 011 039 2481 or
