Teens Show Off Talent and Celebrate STL250 in Competition
For the fourth consecutive year, teens in the St. Louis area can show off their musical, dance, theatrical or other skills in the annual St. Louis Teen Talent Competition, hosted at Grand Center’s Fox Theatre. Those teens who made it through the semi-final round in early March are now ready to perform and show off their best routines and performances.
In honor of STL250, this year’s final round theme is centered on W.C. Handy’s classic tune, “St. Louis Blues.” The 12 finalists are competing on April 4, 2014 to win prizes, chances to perform at The Fox for large shows, college scholarships and more. The complete list is available at the Fox Performing Arts Charitable Foundation’s website. Finalists also have the opportunity to perform at big events like shows at The Muny, Shakespeare Festival St. Louis, Midtown Taste Art Fair and National Dance Week Celebration.
St. Louis native and Broadway actor, director and choreographer, Tony Parise, is both writing the script for the final performances and directing them.
While the selected judges make the final winner decisions, this year, the audience can determine its favorite. The audience-favorite finalist wins a special prize of $1,000.
Tickets to the St. Louis Teen Talent Competition are free, but you must get a ticket ahead of time if you plan on going. Find a list of all the final acts.
