National Judy Garland Talent Search
Fans of Judy Garland will soon be saying “Meet Me in Aitkin,” with the launch of the nation’s first National Judy Garland Talent Search. In advance of the 75th Anniversary of The Wizard of Oz in 2014, the search hopes to find one finalist per U.S. state to compete for the national title. Contestants, ranging from 18 to 45 years of age, will be judged based on their overall appearance and vocal talent. Individual state finalists will gather in October, 2013 in Aitkin, MN, at the newly restored Aitkin Opera House at Butler’s, the exact location where the Minnesota native, then named Frances Gumm, performed on-stage as part of the Gumm Sisters vaudeville act in 1925 at just three years old.

The winner of the nationwide contest will receive a cash prize of $10,000 and a set of professional headshots, in addition to widespread press exposure on local, regional and national TV news outlets, along with national recognition. They will also make an appearance at the 2014 Judy Garland Festival, held every year in Garland’s birthplace of Grand Rapids. For more information on the search, contact Sylvia Allen at Sylvia@allenconsulting.com, or call 732-946-8032.
