CICS National Coordinator, Curtis Gibbons said: “Talent from the Central Zone will be showcased in the second show next Saturday, September 23, at Grantley Adams Memorial School, while the Southern Zone will be judged the following Saturday, September 30, at Combermere.”
All shows begin at 5:30 p.m. and admission is free. Additional information may be obtained from the CICS at telephone numbers 436-9660 and 427-6675.
