WHAT "Smyrna's Got Voice – Kids Rock!" finale, featuring four MOT-area contestants
WHEN 7 p.m., Saturday, April 27
WHERE Smyrna Opera House, 7 W. South St., Smyrna
COST $13; $30 (family four-pack; must include two kids)
INFO smyrnaoperahouse.org or 653-4236
The finale of "Smyrna's Got Voice-Kids Rock" is Saturday night and half of the seven competitors are local singing sensations. The best part? The audience will pick the winner, meaning that the winner's chances could be greatly improved with a show of local support.
The contest is divided by age with three pre-teens representing MOT: 12-year-old Katie Loftus of Townsend, and Jaden McGeoch and Sydney Wilson, both 12 years old and from Middletown. Fourteen-year-old Townsend resident Lauren Berry will be the lone local amongst the other two older singers.
The contest draws its inspiration from "American Idol," so before the voting takes place, a panel of judges will weigh in with constructive criticism and advice. The panel includes three local arts enthusiasts: Barbara Bigelow, Scot McClymont and David Thomas. All three have previous experience in music and stage presence.
Tickets are still available for this weekend's final showdown and start at $13 per person. Family four-packs are also available for $30. The family packs include two adult tickets and two child tickets. All seats are general admission. Discounts are available for children 12-years-old and younger and for students with identification. However, all discounts must be confirmed by calling the box office at (302) 653-4236. Discounts are not available for tickets purchased through the Smyrna Opera House website.
