"We had a pretty good response for this being the first ‘Orland Park's Got Talent' competition," said Frann Carnivele-Sidlow, the village's resident theatre director who is overseeing the contest. "We have a good mix of entertainment with bands, soloists, other performers and even a poet," she said, "Everyone is invited to come enjoy some great local talent."

Semi-finalists will be rated by judges and audience participation with the final fifteen moving onto the final round to be held at the Taste of Orland Park on August 5. The top three winners on August 5 will receive gift cards for $500 for first place; $300 for second place and $200 for third place.
