About

Star Search Overstrand invites youth performing artists to share their talents with the Overstrand community, with the potential of being highlighted on Cape Town TV. 

The Star Search Overstrand auditions are a fun and inclusive space for music, dance, poetry and more.

How it Works

Participants from 13 to 28 years old are awarded points based on originality, cultural expression, technical skill and audience engagement. 

After the auditions, the selected finalists will be invited to perform in the finals, at the Stanford Festival on October 5th, 2024. 

Several winners will be awarded spot prizes at the finals, and a small group of older finalists will be invited to join a mentorship program.

Mission

Besides empowering local musicians, singers, dancers and other talented performers, the event and its contestants aim to inspire others to follow their dreams!
