Are you an animal lover with a talent to share? Do you sing, dance, tell jokes, do magic tricks, perform on silks, perform on stilts, or have any other stage-worthy talent? Then, THE ANIMALS NEED YOU! The Virginia Beach SPCA is hosting their first ever VB’s Got Talent, and they need contestants who will showcase their talents in a live show at Sandler Center for the Performing Arts! The show takes place on July 25th, and it all benefits the animals of the VBSPCA. Plus – the winner receives a cash prize of $2500! For more information, visit www.vbspca.com/vbgt
