Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre, together with presenting sponsor, The Children’s Trust, announce the return of the annual Young Talent Big Dreams – the most widespread local FREE youth talent contest in Miami-Dade. Kids between the ages of 8-17 will be invited to showcase their talents and compete for prizes ranging from performing arts scholarships, cash awards, performance opportunities plus tickets to local attractions and theatres. The Grand Prize winner will receive a free trip – airfare, hotel and free passes for two – to attend the Teen Choice Awards, in Los Angeles courtesy of WSVN CH7, together with $500 in cash. Participation in the competition is free of charge and limited to residents of Miami-Dade County.
Young Talent, Big Dreams is modeled after reality TV talent shows that offer similar opportunities to contestants through a series of auditions and performances. Judges will also include a host of local celebrities and professionals from the performing arts community.
