MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com) - We all dream of fame and fortune at some point in our lives. For some, that dream could become a reality. Talent scouts from LA and New York are coming to the Mid-South in search of fresh faces.

Singers, dancers, models, and actors, mark your calendars. November 20th could be the day you get discovered

"The producers wanna meet you they really are excited about you," Angie Grant of Showcase Of The Rising South said.

These are the words that every wannabe star longs to hear, but seldom does.

"It does not matter, this is true my opinion, how talented you are if you're not seen by the right people, it doesn't matter," Grant said.

Angie Grant knows this from experience.

"The reason why this event is so special to me important to me and I believe in this is because my daughter, Allie Grant, actor, 19 years old. She went to an event just like this and it's how she got her start," Grant said.

Allie currently co stars on ABC's sitcom "Suburgatory". She also had a starring role on the TV series "Weeds". Mom, Angie, wants to shine the limelight on others who wanna make it big. She says showcase of the rising south is how she plans to do it.

"If someone had the opportunity to move beyond this and show their talent then it would definitely be worth it," Grant said.

Angie is bringing 20 talent scouts and managers to olive branch in a couple of weeks. Over four days, those wanting their big break will have the chance to break a leg and possibly make it big.

All it takes is talent and $650. Not a bad deal according to Angie. This audition gives talent all the tools they’ll need.

"Parents pay for their kids to go to college four years does that guarantee them a job when they graduate no they don't so this is how that works," Grant said.

Showcase of the Rising South starts November 20th.
