Daily Herald staff report

Time is running out for talented performers to audition for the second annual Suburban Chicago's Got Talent competition presented by the Daily Herald and sponsored by Arlington Heights' Metropolis Performing Arts Centre and the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce.

The competition offers regional exposure for 30 finalists, with the winner receiving an expense-paid trip to the 2014 auditions for NBC's "America's Got Talent" at a time and date to be determined.

Auditions continue from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. today at the Metropolis, 111 W. Campbell St., Arlington Heights. A few openings remain for walk-in auditions, said a Metropolis representative, who said the judges -- Metropolis executive director Charlie Beck, music director Micky York and casting director Robin Hughes -- will do their best to accommodate everyone.

All acts must be family-friendly and performers under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Only amateur acts and acts without professional representation are eligible for the competition.
