Are You Ready to Share Your Talents with the Public?
Can you sing, dance, perform tricks, twirl? Do you and your friends have a band, a choral group, a comedy act, or something fun to share? Are you part of an organized group that would like to entertain the crowd for up to 3 minutes? If you’ve got something to WOW the crowd, bring it to the stage on June 22nd.
Let our esteemed Judges determine if you and your friends deserve the coveted title of MOST DILL-ICIOUS talent in the area!! All ages are welcome!
Online voting will close on Friday, June 21st at 3 pm. Voting can continue in person at the event.
Initial online auditions/applications will occur through June 5th, 2019 or until 20 contestants are selected by the 1st panel of judges, whichever occurs LAST.
We suggest a recorded video with audio uploaded to our Facebook Messenger or sent to our email address.
Board Members will review all submissions to ensure they are appropriate and forward them to the first panel of judges.
The first panel will select the best representations of talent across several genres of performance.
Each entry will be informed of their inclusion as quickly as possible.
Upon approval, you can then remit your $10.00 registration fee. You will be emailed a link for payment.
Selected participants should arrive no less than 30 minutes prior to their scheduled performance times to warm up, prepare to take the stage, etc.
You will be sharing warm-up and prep space with other performers.
Please be courteous, kind, and respectful of others and their property.
All are welcome to audition!!
Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Those under 18 must have a parent or legal guardian sign consent before the minor child can perform.
Individuals or Groups/Ensembles are welcome. Groups must register all performers by name. Only one entry fee is required for each act regardless of size.
Equipment Needed / Provided:
A sound system and stage will be available.
If your audition act is selected, you will then coordinate with the DJ should you need music played or additional mics, etc. for your performance.
This is an OUTDOOR event, and the stage is not auditorium sized. Larger ensembles or major dance performances may need to make adjustments.
Limit of 3 minutes per act. Acts that run over will be cut off and only judged on the first 3 minutes. (Special exception will be made for an ensemble performance of “Bohemian Rhapsody” should anyone be brave enough to attempt this!)
All talent is welcome including but not limited to music, magic, comedy, martial arts, and more. If it’s your talent, we want to know about it.
Your act CANNOT include: vulgar language, vulgar innuendo, suggestive material or nudity of any kind. This is a family show. If you have to ask if something is too suggestive, it probably is… but we would rather you ask than be uncertain.
No pyrotechnics, open flames, or any other dangerous additions that could cause a liability issue.
No hooved animals are permitted on school grounds, and therefore cannot be part of your act.
All contestants must maintain a loving and sportsmanlike behavior.
We have a no tolerance policy and your participation and eligibility is at the sole discretion of Beauty After Bruises’ representatives and NYCSD.
We reserve the right to reject or disqualify any contestant for any reason or no reason at any time.
We also reserve the right to change the rules and procedures at our discretion based on unforeseen circumstances.
Judges will be named by Beauty After Bruises representatives.
They will be judging both the audition tapes and the final performance (two separate sets of judges) solely on the entertainment value of the talent exhibited during that performance.
The judges who see your audition recording will not be the same as those judging the day of the competition in order to prevent bias.
Though this is all in fun and for the benefit of the charity, we want to give performers a true opportunity to display their talent and to have it appropriately appreciated and rewarded.
No performer or spectator will be allowed to interfere with the judging process.
Judge’s decisions will be final.
A minimum of TWO WINNERS will be selected.
The Judges will select ONE Grand Prize Winner based on the performance delivered that evening.
A second “People’s Choice” Winner will be named based on the highest number of donated votes received.
Vote donations can begin to be collected PRIOR to the event and will continue throughout performances.
Each $1 raised equals ONE VOTE.
People’s Choice votes will close 5 minutes after the final performance of the night.
A minimum 10 minute intermission will occur for vote tabulation and Judges conference, and the Grand Prize and People’s Choice winners will be announced.
