Every year, the Baldwin County Community Alliance puts on a county-wide talent competition for high school students. It’s called the Baldwin County Star Search. Maria and Bryant, from the organization, stopped by our studio to tell us more about the event.
The competition includes everything from drum acts, to soloists, to comedians. There has even been a drama performance in the past. Last year, 650 people attended the show. Four hundred of those people were high school students.
Each high school hosts a talent show. The 1st and 2nd place winners move on to represent their school at the Baldwin Star Search.
Every student has to take a pledge in order to get an admission ticket to the show. The students sign the drug free pledge before walking into the building. The show is free and open to the public.
The show will be at the Orange Beach Events Center at The Wharf on Friday, April 4th. Doors open at 5:30pm, and the show starts at 6:30pm. It lasts until 9:30pm.
Local businesses have donated door prizes to be given away at the event. Chuck Stevens Automotive will be the participation, transportation, and snack sponsor for the talent competition.
Studio 10 host, Cherish Lombard, and Q-Tip from WABD will emcee the show again this year.
The new website is proudtobefreebaldwin.org. Students can communicate about the talent through their website’s blog.
