Audition Information

Would you like to compete in Derryfest? 

Please note that any First-Place winner from a previous year will not be allowed to compete in Derryfest for a period of 5 years, but may be invited to perform at Greater Derry’s Got Talent Preliminary and/or Final Round competitions.

Auditions will be held on Tuesday August 22nd and Wednesday August 23rd at Dance Progressions, 109 Hillside Avenue in Londonderry NH. Use the "Request Audition" button above to select the date and time you prefer. The sooner you sign up, the better chance you will have to get the time you want. If a special circumstance prevents you from auditioning on either of those dates, contact us using the button above and if possible we will try to accomodate you.

A non-refundable entry fee will be collected at the audition. The fee is $15 per performer. This fee is capped at $90 per act so if you have more than 6 performers in a single act you will not have to pay the entry fee for those additional members. The entry fee will be returned if for some reason you are not selected to perform.
