Sketch Arrow 2


Thanks for your interest in auditioning for the GOLDEN TALENT MINE - a community talent show with a twist! 

The beginning of the show will feature acts from all schools supported by the Golden Schools Foundation as well as the Colorado School of Mines. After intermission we welcome the talent from our Golden community and finally we will blend all performers for a fantastic opening and closing extravaganza!

The goal of the show is to have fun while building community, 

promoting cultural/fine arts programs and showcasing Golden’s performers!  


All performers will receive two comp tickets to the show, a T-shirt, and a catered meal on show day.


[Please note -- a wide variety of acts is optimal and the show has time constraints.  If your act is not chosen, we hope you understand our dilemma and we encourage you to audition next year and/or check the “VOLUNTEER BACKSTAGE” box on this form.]
