Celebrating local artists and building community!

Outstanding local performers of all ages are presented in this exciting talent competition – a visually stunning and energy-filled production with a full cast finale that has become a McCallum sell-out event. This Valley-wide talent competition is the perfect opportunity to showcase your talent! If you sing, dance, play an instrument, juggle, do magic, comedy, or another self-contained novelty act, here’s your chance to perform at McCallum. Audience members can vote for their favorite performer and the winners are announced and celebrated at the final performance.
