With 2 successful Amateur Series behind us, we’re now ready to begin our sign up for the 2014 series. There are several changes that will hopefully improve the series. The audition dates will be set so when you’re signing up, please indicate which date you’re interested in. Changes will be possible but this will let you plan in advance to perform.

1. The Columbia County Amateur Series is a free, family friendly entertainment series that is designed to offer amateur performers a venue to showcase their talent. No rude, vulgar or offensive behavior is allowed, nor is profanity in any lyrics. All auditions should be a reflection of the type of performance you will give during the series. If the judges deem your content to not be family friendly, your score will reflect that opinion.
