|Broadway Idol is Back
Sixteen contestants, three judges, and some great showtunes will make for an exciting evening when The Winnipesaukee Playhouse hosts its second annual Broadway Idol musical theatre competition fundraiser.
Styled after American Idol
, the event asks teens and adults to sing for the title of Broadway Idol. The contestants, all non-professional singers, will be tasked with wowing not only the judges but the audience, as the audience will get to choose their favorite performances by purchasing â€œvotesâ€. After each performance, the judges will give feedback to the singer, hopefully not
in the style of Simon Cowell!
At the end of the evening, prizes will be awarded for the â€œjudgeâ€™s prizeâ€ and â€œpopular voteâ€ in both the adult and teen categories. The Teen Idol prizes include a $50 gift card to Tanger Outlets, a pair of tickets to the Capital Center for the Arts AND the guarantee of a part in our upcoming production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
. The Adult Idol prizes include a voucher good for two tickets to Meadowbrook for their 2015 Eastern Propane Concert Series and a $50 Magic Foods Gift Card ("O" Steak and Seafood in Laconia or Concord and Canoe in Center Harbor).
The event takes place on Saturday, September 27th
at 7pm. Tickets are now on sale and cost $10. Last yearâ€™s event was very well attended and patrons are urged to purchase tickets in advance at www.winnipesaukeeplayhouse.org
or by calling 279-0333. Raffle ticket â€œvotesâ€ will be available at the event for $1 per ticket or 12 for $10.
