Are you the next Broadway or pop sensation? Signature is hosting the ‘Signature Voice’ competition on July 23rd during our annual Open House. Held in Signature’s MAX Theatre, the competition will host a panel of three celebrity judges in search of the best undiscovered singers in the DC region.
Signature’s artistic staff chooses finalists based on audition videos submitted by the Monday, July 18th deadline. Those interested should upload a video to YouTube and send Signature the link at firstname.lastname@example.org. All are encouraged to apply!
Of the videos submitted for consideration, Signature will select four finalists to compete and perform. The winner of the Signature Voice Competition will then have the opportunity to perform later that same day at the ‘Broadway on the Plaza’ Finale Concert, one of the most exciting events at the Open House.
Bryce Baxter won last year’s competition. Previous years’ winners include Jade Jones, Alex Stone, Maggie Roos, Chelsea Pedano and Gabriel Lopez.
Eric Schaeffer, Signature’s Artistic Director, describes the Open House as “an all-day extravaganza celebrating our community. One of the Open House highlights is always our Signature talent competition – this year’s Signature Voice! Undiscovered talent gets to shine on the Signature stage in this great talent showcase for local talent.” Schaefer takes one of the three judges’ seats on the panel this year.
