Posted 5 months ago
Local young people have the chance to take centre stage and show off their talent at Camden Council’s annual Camden Shorts event.
The event, which will be part of Council’s Youth Week program, will be held on Friday 3 April, from 7pm, at Camden Civic Centre. It will feature short performances by residents aged between 12 and 25 years, including live music, dance and theatre.
Local duo and sisters, Emmalisa and Sarah Engelbrecht, known as Like Angels, cannot wait to perform their debut single Rain at Camden Shorts.
“We performed last year at Camden Shorts and thought it was a really great idea by Council to give an opportunity to local artists to perform on stage,” Emmalisa Englebrecht said.
“Rain was written for those affected by the current drought and the recent bushfire crisis and we are donating 100 per cent of proceeds from the song to fire and drought relief organisations.
“I also teach singing and piano and find it rewarding for my students to get on stage for the first time.”
Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli, said Camden Shorts was a great way of providing support to young people aspiring to reach their dreams.
“We have so many talented young people in our area who struggle to find their break in the entertainment industry and Camden Shorts is the perfect way to help them,” Cr Fedeli said.
“Our local youngsters will be able to show off their talents in song, dance and theatre on a stage that has hosted many great professional artists over the years.
“I encourage anyone interested in up and coming musicians, actors or dancers to attend and see the best of Camden’s young people.”
Entry to Camden Shorts is free, however bookings are essential.
