RTE coming to Rosslare in search for young talent

RTÉ's search for talented young people is to come to Wexford in the coming weeks. Auditions for the talent competition 'Show Off or Get Off ' will take place in Rosslare at the Cedar's Hotel on Sunday August 12 from 10.30 a.m. to 1.30 p.m.

In common with other auditions being held around the country, five acts from Rosslare will be selected as finalists. Each group of five finalists will face a public vote with the two acts receiving most votes progressing to the next round. The eventual winner will perform live on RTÉ's show 'elev8' and will also get to co-host the show for a day.

All performers between the ages of eight and thirteen (as on the 31st of December 2012) are welcome to take part in the auditions.

Each act will be given one minute to perform their chosen talent for the cameras. All children must be accompanied by an adult on the day.

Any acts that require props, materials or extra time or space to set up are asked to contact producers of the show prior to the audition. Entrants requiring backing music must provide a CD copy of their chosen track and this copy will not be returned.

All auditions are held on a first come first served basis - arrive early to avoid disappointment.
