"Live West End final for Twitter talent contest"
CLICK TO READ FULL ARTICLE
#searchforatwitterstar gathered over 600 online contestants. The objective of the competition is to find the next West End leading man and leading lady. The competition is borrowing some (of the better) elements from TV reality shows but is unique in that it is the only online talent search initiated on Twitter, performed on Twitter and voted for on Twitter.
At the Live Final show at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, London on 9th July in the West End, 10 finalists will battle it out live on stage. The Twitter connection will remain in that the audience will be positively encouraged to give feedback and to vote via Twitter at the event - LIVE!. Every seat will be a Tweet Seat.Follow @sfatsLIVE on Twitter for the latest updates.
The Live Final will also be attended by the normally elusive @westendproducer, who, in his imitable style, will provide his own view on the contestants and give live commentary throughout the event (whilst getting savagely sloshed on Dom and cuddling his Valjean Teddy of course).
The competition has only been possible thanks to the generous time and support of the 'online' judges - two of which sadly are not able to attend the live final due to commitments. We would all like to extend thanks and admiration to Anne Vosser (@AnneVosser) and Peter Polycarpou (@polywallydoodle) - who, along with @westendproducer and @GemmaLowyHamil spent vast amounts of time watching, and judging all the entries.
