A traffic reporter, weatherman and a politician will be the featured judges in this Saturday’s semi-finals of Langley Has Talent.

And the audience will help to decide which acts will head to the finals on Saturday, May 5.

Both events are at Langley Christian Life Assembly, 21277 56 Ave., and begin at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $20 for the semi-finals and finals, or $35 for both shows. They can be bought online at www.langleyhastalent.ca or at the Langley Times office, 20258 Fraser Hwy.

With two acts withdrawing, 22 remain for the semi-finals and they include bands, singers, dancers and an 11-year-old boy who does yoyo tricks.

All contestants will weave their own brand of magic for an unforgettable evening, said Peter Luongo, who is organizing the event on behalf of the four Langley Rotary Clubs. The service clubs’ aim is to raise money for a theatre in Langley, which is the only community in the Lower Mainland that does not have such a facility.

The judges are CTV traffic reporter Ann Luu, Global TV weatherman Mark Madryga, and Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender.

Once again, the emcee is radio host Bob Saye.

Not only is Luongo excited about the second Langley Has Talent show, he is thrilled at the response of the contestants.

“They are really appreciative of the experience, the opportunity and the feedback,” Luongo said.

There is $2,500 for the winning act. On top of that, Luongo said, is a prize package for winners that includes jewelry, a photo shoot, an invitation to a recording studio, and the opportunity to link up with a talent agent.

“The event is doing exactly what we hoped,” Luongo said last month.

“It’s making people aware that we need a theatre in this community. And there is talk about it now that was non-existent before.”
