Musical competition just for kids

Broncon Productions is looking for young people ages 8 to 16 who would like to grab the spotlight as part of the Montreal Musical Show Off competition, being held in June. Children and teens who love to dance, sing or act can audition April 1, 2012 at 12:30 p.m. to become part of a musical troupe.

Once chosen, kids in the 8 to 10 year old category get 14 hours of professional coaching in singing, dancing and acting for $225 and the 11 to 16 year olds get 24 hours of training for $350. There will be rehearsals every Sunday starting May 6, with a final show on June 23. The show's winners will earn $1,000 prizes.
