Young stars shine brightly at Midsummer Place’s Make-Believe talent search and Midsummer Place team up to search for child star in Milton Keynes

Thursday 23 June 2022

On Saturday 18 June, over 150 children gathered at Midsummer Place to showcase their talents in the hopes of winning a part of the £1,000 cash prize and the opportunity to join the MB Talent platform.

The singing and dancing auditions were judged by managing director Joel Kern and industry experts. The auditions were judged across junior (6-9 years old) and senior categories (10+) and were whittled down to 40 finalists. The finalists will now compete for the crown and £500 each at Stantonbury Theatre in October.

Previous winners have gone on to become stars, with 2018 finalist Klaudia Gjergji starring in West End production ‘On Your Feet’ this year, and 2017 winner Charis Tetteh taking a role in ‘School of Rock’ since last year.

Marketing Manager at Midsummer Place, Kirsty McGiff has said “The event was a huge success, and it is incredible to see the huge array of talent we have in Milton Keynes. Well done to everyone that took part whether you were a finalist or not.”
