10th Annual Essex Has Talent

If you can sing, dance, play an instrument, juggle, do acrobatics, or have another special talent, we have the event for you! So get your friends together and work on your routine. Each act is limited to 3-5 minutes, including your set-up, performance, and exit from the stage. Performances can be individual or group and may include song, dance, instrumental, comedy, acrobatics, juggling, acting, or other random talents.
