Port Moody triple threat Julia MacLean, 12, will return to the PNE Star Showdown stage this year, hoping to clinch the provincial title that was won in 2013 by another young talent from Port Moody: Tyson Venegas.

This past spring, MacLean, a student at Moody middle and the Lindbjerg Academy of Performing Arts, starred as Annie in the 25th anniversary production of the Royal City Musical Theatre.

MacLean is in the Showdown semi-finals’ kids division on Saturday with singer Emma Leblanc, 12, of Anmore.

The pair will perform between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m.

Meanwhile, on Sunday at the same times, Brianna Carniel, 14, of Port Moody, will sing in the youth division.

The finals will happen on Wednesday, Aug. 20.
