Finalists in the McCallum Theatre's 16th annual Open Call Talent Competition will perform at the theater starting Thursday night.

Vocalists, dancers, musicians and other performers will take the stage at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and at 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday.

At Thursday's and Friday's shows and the 2 p.m. Saturday performance, members of the audience will vote, and their collective vote carries the weight of one judge at Saturday night's performance, where winners will be announced. Cash prizes will be awarded to an audience favorite, second place and grand prize winner. The grand prize is $2,500.

About 100 artists chosen by audition will perform in 19 acts. A list of performers is posted at www.mccallumtheatre.com.
