Adelaide Festival Centre will showcase performances from the 11 finalists of its Students Got Talent competition at Her Majesty’s Theatre on February 13.
Tickets to the free event are available from today, and the local community is being encouraged to attend to show its support for Adelaide’s 30,000 international students impacted by COVID-19 travel restrictions.
Selected from more than 50 submissions, the finalists include an exciting range of talents including beatboxing, dance and traditional music.
Countries represented on the night include Malaysia, Philippines, India, China, Iran, Indonesia and Vietnam.
Hosted by Adelaide comedian Jason Chong, Students Got Talent is offering $9500 in prize money to be won.
The talent competition is presented by Adelaide Festival Centre’s Student Summer Series as part of StudyAdelaide’s Summer in Adelaide program, which offers free or low-cost access to events and activities for international students to enjoy over the summer holidays.
Adelaide Festival Centre CEO & Artistic Director Douglas Gautier AM said “It’s certainly a challenging time for international students in South Australia and all over the world. They’ve been separated from their loved ones for a long time, and now they face a lengthy study break without the option of going home to their families.
“Students Got Talent is all about making international students feel welcome in our community while providing some entertainment during this difficult period.”
StudyAdelaide CEO Karyn Kent said “StudyAdelaide has been delighted with the response by the South Australian community to support international students during our summer program. Adelaide Festival Centre’s Students Got Talent is a flagship event that the students have embraced in return.
“We look forward to cheering on the finalists as they take to the stage and sharing this achievement, and the message that South Australia cares for international students, with the world.”
Students Got Talent will be livestreamed, courtesy of Channel 44, to be viewed and enjoyed all over the world.
