For auditions, please arrive at The JCC (3600 Dutchmans Lane) 15 minutes prior to your selected time on January 26, 2020. You will need to sign in as a visitor at the front desk and then go downstairs to the Senior Adult Lounge to check in for your audition. There will be signs directing you where to go. Once you are called back to the audition room, you will have 90 seconds to strut your stuff! If you are using music, we will provide a CD player and iPod connection for Round 1 auditions. We do not provide an accompanist, but you are welcome to bring one with you. No parents, guardians, family or friends will be allowed in the audition room unless they are your accompanist. All bands must bring their own music. Any additional equipment needed, like amplifiers, will not be provided.

Seven years ago in honor of my Bar Mitzvah, I created Louisville’s Got Talent to raise money to support the operations of CenterStage Acting Out. Acting Out is a theatre program that takes live productions to underserved schools across our city. From a young age, I was lucky to have the opportunity to see a lot of live theatre and it created the passion that I still have today. Un its first 6 years Louisville’s Got Talent has raised more than $50,000 for this amazing program. Thanks for your support and participation.
