Calling all talented singers and performers, Teen Star 2018 auditions are just around the corner! Teen Star is a competition that showcases the best teen solo vocal and dance talent in the local area, and their ninth season is just getting started!
If you are a student in grades 7-12, attending a junior high or high school within Santa Barbara County, now is your chance to register for an audition.
Contestants must apply online no later than November 5, and the first 100 applicants with a completed application and signed parental agreements are granted auditions. Visit this website to learn more about eligibility and requirements.
Contestants interview and audition before a panel of judges, and ten semi-finalists are chosen to perform and compete in the Finale Showcase. The showcase is in front of a live audience and celebrity judges from the music industry!
The judges and audience vote on the night of the performance to determine three finalists and the winner. The winner receives a $1,000 scholarship and the title of Teen Star Santa Barbara.
This competition offers a professional platform where teens can flourish and showcase their talents in a healthy, supportive environment, instilling professionalism and rewarding hard work.
Teen Star also supports performing arts programs in local schools, and gives local youth an outlet to showcase their talents. Proceeds from the competition are donated to performing arts programs in Santa Barbara.
