The first-ever BroadwayCon Star to Be talent competition will take place January 28, 2017, on the BroadwayCon MainStage at the Javits Center. BroadwayCon returns January 27-29.
Up to ten finalists will be chosen to perform in front of three celebrity judges and a room full of fellow Broadway fans as part of the talent competition that is open to various acts. Judges include Tara Rubin, LaChanze, and Tony Yazbeck.
To audition, upload a video of your act to YouTube. It can be a vocal solo, a duet, a group number, a dance, a band—whatever is uniquely you! All we ask is that you use a Broadway play or musical to inspire the act and that you’d be able to recreate it onstage at BroadwayCon.
After you upload to YouTube, email the link and the names of everyone in your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Entries are due by December 20, and ten finalists will be given a Saturday Day Pass to BroadwayCon 2017 for each member of their acts. Travel and lodging will not be provided. Finalists will be notified by December 31. Click here for more information.
The Star To Be winner, selected by the judges at BroadwayCon 2017, will be awarded a General Pass and hotel accommodations for BroadwayCon 2018!
