Best in Theatre


ACT’s Best-in-Theatre is a brand new musical theatre competition for emerging talent in Windsor-Essex. Students will have the opportunity to work with mentors who will guide them through performance techniques, give feedback on song selections, facilitate character development, and give tips on how to stand out in a competition.

The competition will take place on June 10th at The Rockstar (2418 Central Ave, Windsor).  Contestants will perform 2 songs for a panel of judges, who will select the best 3 performers.  The winners will each receive a cash prize. There will also be an audience choice award.

We are looking for the best student musical theatre performers in Windsor. We’re encouraging local talent to come out and show Windsor everything they’ve got!
