BC’s Got Talent auditions set

Budding Boulder City stars are invited to showcase their abilities as entertainers during the annual BC’s Got Talent.

Auditions will be held starting at 9 a.m. April 16 at the Elaine K. Smith Center, 700 Wyoming St.

Justin Keogh, who is helping organize this year’s event and serves as emcee, said he encourages people of all ages and talents to audition.

In addition to this year’s contestants, BC’s Got Talent will feature several of last year’s winners in command performances, he said.

The show will be held at 7 p.m. May 21 at Bicentennial Park, 999 Colorado St. In the past, it was held at the amphitheater at Boulder City Library.

The new venue should provide ample seating for the show that has continued to grow in popularity, Keogh said.

Audience members are encouraged to bring blankets, chairs and picnics to the park.

The talent show, which awards cash prizes donated by Boulder Dam Credit Union, was started in 2010 by Friends of the Arts. It is now sponsored by the Boulder City History and Arts Foundation.

Chris Frausto, who helped Friends of the Arts merge with the Historic Boulder City Foundation, said she believes the partnership invigorated members and brought new ideas to the annual event.

“Come out and enjoy the spring weather,” she said earlier this year.

The foundation plans to have soft drinks and snacks available for purchase.

The talent show is sponsored by Sempra U.S. Gas & Power.

Appointments are necessary to audition, and there is a $10 fee.

Audition information is available at www.bcsgottalent.com or by calling or texting Keogh at 702-480-3615, or emailing him at bouldercitysgottalent@gmail.com.

In addition to talent for the show, volunteers are needed to help organize and set up the event, as well as serve as stage assistants.

Slow drains can lead to costly repairs

Nothing puts a kink in your kitchen or bathroom like a backed-up drain. Treat it quickly and avoid an out of commission sink, shower or tub. Let it go from slow drain to standing water and you’ll be in for a messy, smelly, unsanitary and potentially costly repair.
