REGINA - TeleMiracle, “Saskatchewan’s Charity”, is calling on Saskatchewan entertainers to audition to perform on TeleMiracle 46, which will be broadcast live on CTV Saskatchewan and live streamed on telemiracle.com on March 5-6, 2022.
This year’s slogan is: “Rooted in Saskatchewan”.
The success of last year’s TeleMiracle (TeleMiracle 45) was truly miraculous, especially when you consider that it took place during a pandemic.
This year’s broadcast will feature a little new school mixed with a little old school. It all starts at 6:15 p.m. on Saturday, March 5, 2022, with the Countdown to TeleMiracle. This portion is only streamed live.
The main broadcast starts at 9 p.m. on Saturday, March 5, and goes straight through till 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 6, 2022. The main Telemiracle broadcast can be watched on CTV in Saskatchewan.
Performers can audition by video submission, or in person in Saskatoon on October 30 or in Regina on November 6.
For in-person auditions, provincial public health measures require that everyone in attendance must provide proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test result. All attendees must also follow mandatory masking requirements and precautions will be in place to ensure social distancing for performers and volunteers.
“Auditions are a reminder that TeleMiracle is less than six months away,” said Kinsmen Foundation Executive Director Richard Kies. “With the option to audition in person or by video, our Producers are hoping to see performers from every corner of the province.”
Talent and a passion for TeleMiracle are the main criteria, but performers are also chosen to represent a wide variety of communities across Saskatchewan.
“TeleMiracle is a grassroots event and nothing demonstrates that better than our home-grown, Saskatchewan talent,” said Steve Kirwan, Chair of TeleMiracle 46. “These talented performers not only provide hours of entertainment, they also raise tens of thousands of dollars to support the telethon.”
