If you -- or, more likely, if you're in the newspaper-reading demographic, your offspring -- are among the next Winnipeggers who deserve a shot at becoming The Next Star, this is your opportunity to get the journey started.
The audition tour for Season 7 of YTV's The Next Star stops in Winnipeg on Saturday, May 3, offering locals aged 15 or younger as of Sept. 1, 2014, a chance to try out for Canada's longest-running talent competition show.
Auditions begin Saturday morning at the RBC Winnipeg Convention Centre; hopefuls can begin lining up at 6 a.m., with pre-registration taking place from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. Tryouts are on a first-come, first-seen basis; those arriving after 9 a.m. will not be guaranteed an audition.
Potential Next Stars must come prepared with two song choices, with one of them being from the show's approved song list. A participant release form must be completed, and auditioners not accompanied by a parent or legal guardian must bring a release form signed by at least one parent or legal guardian.
Full audition details and participant release forms are available at http://nextstar.ytv.com/.
