The 200 people who attended the seventh annual Mosaic Youth Talent Showcase presented by the Rotary Club of Parksville at Knox United Church in Parksville May 19 were treated to an amazing night of entertainment.

There was a wide range of local talent on stage during the event that supports rising stars in the community.

Local country singer Beth Marie Anderson produced the show, which included scholarships for those who performed.

It is the second year the 25- year-old has produced Mosaic and she said she agreed that each performer brought their A-game to the stage and the whole night really showcased the growth of the show.

“I am very excited for next year and hope to showcase the talent that couldn’t fit into the program this year,” said Anderson.

Emcee Erick Gow provided plenty of humour during the show and was outstanding with pianist Nico Rhode when the pair performed a one-act skit called 15 Minutes.

From dancing to singing to musical theatre the local performers in the youth talent showcase are names to watch out for.
