2nd Annual Worcester Talent Showcase in the Works!
In April, we held our 1st Annual Worcester Talent Showcase event with performances from some fine local talent (poets, musicians, and dancers). We held this event as the kick off to our 24 Hours on the Street event. As it takes a good deal of time and effort, we have both decided to hold it separate from our 24 Hours on the Street event and begin the planning process this summer. The event will be held sometime in January 2011. We'll keep you posted on the details. Any entertainers interested in participating in the event can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
