BECOME THE NEXT BIG STAR
AT THE MALTZ JUPITER THEATRE’S
2011 PALM BEACH IDOLS

March 31, 2011 (Jupiter, FL) – Mark your calendars for Palm Beach County’s original, fun-filled talent search!

Auditions for Palm Beach Idols – the popular Palm Beach County talent show for performers of all ages – will take place on Saturday, April 30, from noon to 8 p.m. at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre.

The Theatre, in conjunction with the Maltz Jupiter Theatre Guild, is producing its eighth annual regional take on the television show American Idol on Saturday, July 9, at 7:30 p.m.

Performers of all ages and talents – singers, dancers, musicians, comedians and more – are encouraged to audition for a chance to win cash prizes. There will be three categories: youth, teen and adult. Each category will have three finalists decided by panel of local celebrity judges. The final winners will be determined by an audience vote.

“The guild loves this opportunity to bring the best of South Florida to our stage, and the talent gets better and better each year,” says Eileen Weissmann, the event’s producer and guild member. “Contestants have the chance to win money and media attention, and previous contestants have gone on to star in Broadway shows such as Beauty and the Beast and Mary Poppins. We would love to see the next big star discovered at our Theatre.”

The show is an annual fundraiser for the guild, which raises money to support the not-for-profit Theatre and its Conservatory of Performing Arts. The Conservatory offers classes in dance, voice, acting and musical theatre for students of all ages, taught by Broadway-caliber instructors.
