Opportunity for a Young MC

Hunt for talented MC to host awards underway

The search for a dynamic young presenter who will emcee the 7th ACT | DALRO | 
Nedbank Scholarships finale is underway. 

The countrywide series of auditions will kick off in June. This will be done alongside 
the search for the top six young performers who will be eligible to win one of three 
scholarships, with a combined value of R315 000, to go towards their tuition fees 
for a performing arts qualification at any accredited South African tertiary institution.
The seventh edition of Magic in the Making awards – set to take place at the 
Market Theatre in Johannesburg’s Newtown Precinct on 12 October 2015 – 
will have a showcase by the six finalists to a live audience and an independent 
panel of judges. The production’s variety show format will not only allow the participants
 to deliver enchanting pieces in dance, singing and acting but also have the 
charismatic presenter bring all the acts together into a seamless performance for 
the audience and judges to enjoy.

MC search auditions will take place on the same dates as the auditions for the 
Scholarships themselves. There is no registration fee, and participants can register 
online at:

Closing date for the MC registrations is 19 June 2015 and all 
registered individuals will be 
supplied with audition material and necessary details.
