TUPELO – Pied Piper Players wants the area’s most talented kids to enter its talent show, “Got Talent?”

“Got Talent?” is a talent show for students in grades K-12, said Pied Piper Players Board President Jill Hart. It’s set for Sept. 27.

The first round is for those in kindergarten through sixth grade, followed by the second round for seventh- to 12th-graders. Finalists from each round will perform in a final round to determine the overall winner.

There are cash prizes for the first-, second- and third-place winners, Hart said.

The entry fee is $20, and that includes an admission ticket for the first rounds or finals.

Entry forms are available at the Pied Piper Players office at the Link Centre, or by emailing piedpipertheatretupelo@gmail.com.

Entry forms and fees are due by Sept. 15.

The talent show, which Pied Piper hopes to turn into an annual event, will be the group’s major fundraiser.

Pied Piper Players’ 2014-2014 season kicks off Nov. 7-9 with the musical comedy, “Robin Hood and the Sherwood Hoodies.”
