Oakland's Got Talent 2014 

When: Wed., June 4, 7 p.m. 2014
Price: $25-$100
For those obsessed with talent competitions like American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance, now there’s one with a local focus: Oakland’s Got Talent. Parents of students at Oakland School for the Arts (OSA) initially organized the show to celebrate Oakland artists, but so many people outside of the city expressed interest in participating that they decided to open up the competition to anyone in the Bay Area. The show, which will take place on Wednesday at The Fox Theater (1807 Telegraph Ave., Oakland), will feature fourteen acts, including vocalists, poets, dancers, and musicians, who were chosen out of the 254 people who auditioned. Celebrity judges including actress and singer Zendaya and Fruitvale Station producer Ephraim Walker will select three winners to receive cash prizes. The evening will also feature performances by local talents such as OSA’s a cappella group Vocal Rush.
