Tickets to the heats and final of the 2018 Burdekin Fast Track Talent Showcase go on sale from 10am today, with home-grown Burdekin talent set to shine alongside former X Factor winner Cyrus.
2017 Burdekin Shire Youth Council Mayor Tayla McKaig said the Burdekin’s largest talent competition would be held at Burdekin Theatre on Saturday 28 April and tickets to be part of the audience were expected to sell fast.
“Singers, dancers, groups, musicians, comedians and dance troupes from the Burdekin and beyond will put their talent on display for the chance to win great cash and prizes,” Miss McKaig said.
“The Fast Track team is always blown away by the level of talent that we have here in the Burdekin and I am sure this year will be no exception.
“Burdekin Shire Youth Council plays a key role in running this annual event and has been working behind the scenes to put together another fantastic showcase in 2018.”
Guest celebrity Cyrus, who won the X Factor grand final in 2015, will be part of this year’s Burdekin Fast Track industry workshops, act as a guest judge and perform a mini concert at the Final Showcase.
Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Lyn McLaughlin congratulated the Youth Council on securing Cyrus for the event.
“He will be a wonderful mentor for all of our performers on the day,” she said.
Heats will commence from 11am with the Final Showcase featuring Cyrus at 7pm.
Tickets are $10 for entry to all heats and $25 for the final showcase featuring Cyrus.
