The next West End stars go head-to-head in hopes of their dreams coming trueGotta Sing! and The Phoenix Artist Club present the grand final of Talent 2016 – the search for the next musical theatre star. Hundreds of new performers applied, and through ten gruelling rounds have been whittled down to the final few, so you’ll be guaranteed to see the best in up-and-coming musical theatre talent.
The eleven finalists will compete to win £1,000 and a recording session, in front of a star-studded professional panel of West End leads and international casting directors. Previous judges have included Michael Ball, Elaine Paige, Savannah Stevenson and Kerry Ellis. Also appearing will be leading stars from West End shows such as Wicked, Beautiful, Motown and Aladdin to show everyone how it's done.
Over the last five years this talent search has led the industry, with the winner of the last final, Laura Jane Matthewson, going on to win the Emerging Talent Award at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards for her lead performance in the UK premiere of Dogfight, having been spotted by a producer during the Talent competition. Talent 2016 presenter and singer Colin Savage said: "We are looking for the next Rosalie Craig or Killian Donnelly. We struck gold finding Laura Jane and several of our previous finalists have since appeared in West End shows. Let’s hope we can do just as well this year, this is a brilliant platform for new performers!"
All the proceeds of the event will go to the entertainment charity Acting For Others.
