Casting Call for ‘Marco’s Got Talent’

The Rotary Club of Marco Island Sunrise is accepting applications to participate in “Marco’s Got Talent.” The show is scheduled for March 5, 2019 but event organizers are lining up talent now. The exciting event will showcase some of Marco’s most entertaining performances. 

“Marco’s Got Talent, presented by Law Offices of William G. Morris, P.A., will be a premiere event,” according to Debra Shanahan and Wanda Burson, who are spearheading the group’s evening. The top performance will receive a cash prize, but first the performer has to submit an application to perform. Initial applications will be reviewed by the event committee, who will select the best in a variety of talents and skills. 

Event organizers are hoping for a wide range of performers. Debra Shanahan explained, “We expect some really great talent, from school age through the most mature. The closet opera singer and living room dancer will both have an opportunity to shine along with many others.” Wanda Burson added, “We saw some pretty good dancing with Marco’s Dancing with the Stars a few years ago and we have been thinking about expanding the program ever since. This should be a great event.”

There is no charge for performers. Performer registration will close when openings are filled. Anyone interested should submit an application soon.

The evening will include a sterling panel of judges, including Fire Chief Mike Murphy, owner of Duke’s Appliances Joseph Billi, and the executive director of Marco Island Center for the Arts, Hyla Crane.
