Warm up, Bushwick—the time is coming to strut your stuff!
Bushwick performance institution House of Yes is accepting audition tapes for a turbocharged talent show to take place in September in the style of a televised competitive arts showcase.
“Bushwick’s Got Talent,” which is scheduled for Thursday, September 22 at 7 p.m. at the beautiful space at 2 Wyckoff Ave. off of the Jefferson Street stop on the L train, is an opportunity for community members to present their unusual skills to the public as a short act.
Performances will be judged by as-yet unannounced local celebrities, and prizes, including cash for the first place participant, will be awarded at the end of the evening.
Organizers hope to make the event a recurring one, and there are no rules for qualifying acts. To be considered for the lineup, interested locals need only record a short video of the act and submit it with a short description of the talent and a photo of the performer to info[@]houseofyes.org
Now’s the chance to share your skills, secret or otherwise—so get that video ready!
Best of luck, talent of Bushwick!
