Auditions Underway for River District Festival Talent Show

Danville, VA-- The annual River District Festival in Danville isn't until October, but preparation is already in the works.

Auditions for the festival talent show were held Saturday at the Union Street Theatre. It will showcase local artists in Danville.

One 16-year-old sang and played his guitar for his audition. He said he's performed at school, outside of Walmart, and even auditioned for American Idol, but he still wants a chance at being in the talent show.

{}"Music is my passion and my dream and it's what I want to do with my life and plus I could use the 500 hundred dollars, trying to save up three thousand dollars for a guitar so five hundred dollars would definitely help with that, " said Hamilton Richardson.

If you'd like to be a part of the talent show, you still have a chance, auditions will be held September 21-22 at the Union Street Theatre.
