For the first time ever since 2007, LA's Next Great Stage Star celebrates it's 10 Year Anniversary by allowing you to view any one of the 6 live events on a private YouTube Channel. |
Loosely patterned after an "audition process", this live, 10th annual, once weekly, fully produced event presented by Princess Cruises and Co-Executive Producers Michael Sterling and Barbara Van Orden, is geared to discovering new talent between the ages of 18 and 32 for the professional musical theatre stage.
As has become the standard, 20 contestants compete for the title, a $2500 1st Place cash prize, a recording session and record release, a lucrative headlining engagement at Sterling's Upstairs at The Federal in the NoHo Arts District of North Hollywood, professional agency representation in the business of musical theatre, and other valuable prizes.
To date, 14 former contestants have already made their Broadway and/or Off-Broadway debuts; while nearly another 100 have either starred in Broadway U.S. National Tours; Regional U.S. Musical Theatre productions; Las Vegas Hotel productions of Broadway Musicals; in lavish production shows on board some of the world's most prestigious cruise lines; or have starred on stages at numerous Southern California Theme Parks such as Disneyland's California Adventure and Lego Land. Internationally, Tokyo Disney is also host to Stage Star talent.
The event is judged by nearly two dozen Los Angeles-based Broadway Musical Theatre Producers, Directors, Casting Directors, and Equity theatre agents who not only score each contestant's performance, but offer live critical feedback each week with no eliminations until the final week of competition. Audience members may also vote for their favorite contestant(s) during Weeks 1 through 5 (each Sunday evening January 3 - 31). The Stage Star Finale (Monday, February 8) reveals the title winner and top 4 runners up with that day's competition voted on by all of the competition's returning judges.
The purchase you are making as a paying video viewing audience member automatically registers you to win a $5000 round-trip west coast or Mexican Riviera vacation for two, courtesy of Princess Cruises. Enjoy the competition and good luck! A random drawing for the Princess Cruise will be conducted Tuesday, February 9, 2016.
