Garrettsville – This past Sunday, over 43 contestants competed in a closed audition held at James A. Garfield High School, hoping to keep their dreams alive by becoming the next Garrettsville Idol. Judges Danny Deakins, Wendi Brown and Jackie Rinearson were given the difficult task of selecting those who would receive a golden ticket to move on to the semi- finals. After some lengthy deliberations, 35 contestants’ dreams of being named the next Garrettsville Idol were still alive and they will have the opportunity to compete in the semi- finals held on May 17, 2015.
There will be two incredible shows for the Garrettsville Idol Semi-Finals. The first show will start at 4pm and will feature the youth and teens, while the second show will start at 6 pm and will feature the adult contestants. Each contestant will perform an entire song with music accompaniment before a live audience at James A. Garfield High School’s Iva Walker Auditorium. The winners of the semi-finals will advance to the finals held Sunday June 28th during Summerfest.
Tickets for the semi-finals are $3 for each show and are available at Sky Lanes Bowling Alley. You can reserve tickets and pick them up at the auditorium on the day of the performance by calling Aaron King (330) 524-2646.
