Broadway Idol Contest



Broadway Idol” Song Contest
Submission Guidelines

The inaugural Broadway Festival of South Florida (BFSF) will take place from July 21 – 23, 2017 at Miramar Cultural Center.  On July 23, the closing event of BFSF will be a Broadway song contest with as many as 30 participants singing their best Broadway song. New York Broadway Director/Choreographer/Actor Baayork Lee (A Chorus Line, Promises Promises, Flower Drum Song) and Writer/Lyricist/ Director Gerard Alessandrini (Writer/Director of Forbidden Broadway and Spamilton) and other Broadway industry artists will serve as panelists, giving participants valuable feedback in an open forum and selecting a winner.

We invite performers, aged 18 and up, and all styles to participate.  Please send us a video (use private setting if the video is housed on a public platform like YouTube) of you singing 30 seconds of your best Broadway show tune.  Selection can be sung either with accompaniment (tracks or live) or a cappella. Video quality does not matter – a camera phone is fine.  From our pool of submissions, up to 30 people will be chosen on the basis of their video to participate in Broadway Idol in person on July 23.
