Battle Contestants Needed
ROYAL OAK, Mich., December 3, 2009 - Stagecrafters is putting out a call for talented singers who can also fundraise. The 2010 Battle for the Mic is Stagecrafters' version of TV's popular singing competitions with a bit of Broadway glitter thrown in and a twist - the coveted title of "Battle for the Mic Champ" is based on the singers' ability to raise funds rather than their undeniable ability to sing. On Saturday, April 17, 2010, contestants will take the stage at the Baldwin Theatre for a fun-filled, Broadway-infused evening of dazzling entertainment and high-stakes fundraising. Dollars become 'votes' and audience members, friends, and family can help push their favorite singer into the championship by supporting them with pre-show pledges and donations the night of the competition. Competition proceeds go to Stagecrafters' programs.
This competition is open to ages 18 and older. Contestants do not have to be a member of Stagecrafters.
- Sing one solo (mutually agreed upon) and participate in selected duets, trios and group numbers,
- Need to attend a few rehearsals,
- Need to set up an audition time on Monday, December 14, to complete the application process.
Interested singers should contact Stagecrafters' development director, Lesley Braden-Phillips, for details about the competition by calling 248-541-8027, Ext. 11 or via email Lesleyp@stagecrafters.org.
