With hundreds of entries to the talent search via YouTube and Twitter, 10 Finalists - 5 male and 5 female - will battle it out in a live final to become a potential Leading Lady and Leading Man of the West End.
"I was so impressed with some of the talent coming through #searchforatwitterstar," explains Producer, Tony Green "and feeling our industry is poorly represented by the current run of TV talent shows, I decided it was time to give our 'stagey' wannabes the opportunity to show us what they have; in the right environment that will enable their talent to really shine through."
The contestants will be judged by a panel of respected West End Musical Theatre experts:
West End Leading Lady LOUISE DEARMAN @LouiseDearman
West End & TV MD MIKE DIXON @mikedixonmusic
West End Agent GEMMA LOWY HAMILTON @GemmaLowyHamil
West End Casting Director ANNE VOSSER @AnneVosser
The competition will also be attended by the normally elusive @westendproducer, who, in his imitable style, will provide his own view on the contestants and give live commentary throughout the event (whilst getting savagely sloshed on Dom and cuddling his Valjean Teddy of course).
Opening night: 9 July 2012
Closing night: 9 July 2012
