In partnership with The Next Street driving school, the Palace Theater hosted the COVID-EO Student Talent Challenge. This was an opportunity for students to share their talents on the Palace Theater virtual stage. We received 84 total submissions from all over Connecticut ranging in age from 6 to 21 doing everything from original COVID-19 based parodies, beautiful Broadway covers, and dance routines. All submissions received from April 9, 2020 to May 1, 2020 were shared on the Palace Instagram page (@palace_theater). We have narrowed it down to our 10 finalists based on per capita Instagram engagement. You can view the 10 finalists in the Youtube playlist below.
Prizes will be given out to 3 of the submissions:
1st prize goes to the video that received the best Instagram engagement
2nd prize goes to the popular vote of the public survey
3rd prize goes to the Palace staff pick from the 10 finalists
Survey closed 5/24/20 midnight ET
All in all, we have been blown away by the talent and creativity that our community has shown in their submissions. This has been so well received, that we will continue hosting virtual talent showcases in the future.
