Telethon Perth 2014

Want to perform at Telethon Perth 2015?

The team at Telethon Perth are inviting talented performers to audition for this year’s extravaganza.

Artists across WA are encouraged to apply over the next couple of weeks.

Telethon Perth 2015 will take place at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre in October.

According to the Telethon Perth website, vocalists looking to audition should supply a video performance with their application – with live auditions then offered to those successful.

Bands, groups and other acts are also asked to send in a video showcasing their talents. Successful applicants will then be invited to be part of Telethon 2015.

Artists who live outside of Perth wishing to perform during the Telethon weekend are also encouraged to apply.

Applications close Friday July 3, 2015.

Telethon Perth 2015 will broadcast live for some 26 hours over October 17 & 18 2015.

The 2014 production saw more than 300 TV production crew at work; more than 200 lights; 60 plus microphones; 55 hair and make-up artists; more than 600 entertainers; 100 Virgin Australia flights and more than 1,000 volunteers which made the Telethon weekend the most successful ever.

An incredible $25 million was raised in 2014. An unbelievably generous sum raised over the weekend. Since 1968 Telethon Perth has raised $179,778,436.

Funds raised go to many causes right across the Western Australian NFP sector and community, as well as the Telethon Institute of Child Research – one of the most successful medical and scientific facilities in the world.

Applications to audition on the Telethon broadcast can be made here.
