Attention, aspiring Broadway stars! Playbill and Prudential are looking for fabulous early-career theatre singers with Stages on Broadway, a contest that will give artists a chance at a major NYC performance opportunity and a $10,000 cash prize.
To enter, make a video (three minutes or less) of you singing one of five pre-selected hit Broadway showtunes. You can choose between "Father Time" from Kimberly Akimbo, "Giants in the Sky" from Into the Woods, "Independently Owned" from Shucked, "Darker Shade of Blue" from Some Like It Hot, or "The Wizard and I" from Wicked. You'll also need to tell us your role model when you started singing, what motivates you to keep getting better, and what this opportunity would mean to you.
Following a nationwide virtual audition process, four winners and a guest will be flown to NYC to perform at Playbill and Prudential's Curtain Up Broadway Festival, scheduled to take over Times Square September 8-10. Before arriving, winners will get a virtual Q&A with Broadway star Brittney Johnson, who will also give one-on-one guidance to the winners in person at a Manhattan rehearsal studio while they're in town.
A panel of Broadway luminaries, including Johnson, will evaluate the Festival performances and select one Grand Prize winner to receive a $10,000 cash prize. Runners-up will also receive a cash prize, and all winners will be eligible to receive an initial consultation with one of Prudential's financial advisors to help with their financial decision making. All winners will also enjoy a night out on the town with dinner, a Broadway show, and a meet-and-greet with the cast. Airfare, ground transportation, meals, and hotel accommodations are all included.
