The Arizona Young Artists’ Competition offers aspiring young artists with an opportunity to compete in the disciplines of Acting, Dance and Musical Theatre Voice (age 15-19) and Classical Voice (age 16-20).
The competition is a collaboration between the Herberger Theater Center and Center Dance Ensemble to showcase the diverse and emerging talent of young Arizona artists, introduce them to the audition process, and provide them with an opportunity to interact with highly-regarded arts professionals. The winner in each category will receive a $1,500 scholarship to help further their education in the arts. The audience also has a chance to participate and vote for their favorite performer in the People’s Choice Awards. Arizona Broadway Theatre (ABT) partners with the Herberger Theater to sponsor an additional $1,500 scholarship to be awarded to one finalist. The winner is chosen by a panel of ABT judges and offered an opportunity to perform with the ABT professional cast in a Main Stage production.
