dancers, actors, comedians and magicians who have disabilities to
audition for its 2012 talent show.

Arts Center on the campus of North Central College in
Fifteen semi-finalists will be drawn from talent across four
states-Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan-and will be
broadcast on cable television throughout the Midwest.
Finalists will perform before a live audience. Celebrity guests
and judges are expected to participate.
