The most talented Winnipeg performers from the first round of “Canada’s Got Talent” auditions will perform for a live audience two days later this month.

The Canada’s Got Talent Live Theatre Audition Tour will be held Tuesday, December 13 and Wednesday, December 14 at the Pantages Playhouse Theatre.

Performers will be judged by a panel of celebrities, including Martin Short, Measha Brueggergosman, and Stephan Moccio. The live theatre auditions will be hosted by Dina Pugliese.
