Pull that sax out of the closet, start warming up your vocals in the shower, grab the cape, black hat and wand from the basement -- Geneva's Got Talent is looking for you.

If you have a talent that can amaze a crowd and impress a panel of judges, Geneva Chamber of Commerce wants to hear from you.

The four audition judges -- Terry Skreens, Eric Elftmann, Leah Leman and Mike Jacoby -- are preparing themselves for an incredible exhibition of talent.

The semifinals will take place on Central Stage during Swedish Days, on Wednesday, June 18. Judges for that evening will be Mary Jean Bankmann, Marguerite Karl, Steve Lord and Jordan Newhouse. Mayor Kevin Burns will be master of ceremonies for Wednesday.

Those moving on to the finals will perform Saturday, June 21, again on Central Stage. The final judges include Mary Hooper, Brian Skreens, Becky Untiedt and Dan Yotz.

"Geneva's Got Talent" auditions will be held May 17 in Geneva. Only the first 75 applications received will be invited to audition and vie for a chance to perform during Swedish Days for a chance at $1,000 cash prize. You do not have to live in Geneva to apply.

Rules and the application can be found at For information, call (630) 232-6060.
