And our winner is: Cidalia Alves!  A wonderful singer/actor studying at Western Ct State University. She sings musical theatre and opera. In fact she is singing the leading role of "Carmen" in her college's upcoming production.  Margaret Astrup is her vocal coach.   Cid will be coming with me to two (so far) TV follow ups where she will sing and talk about her experience in the very first "So ya wanna be a Broadway Star" competition.
The judges also decided that they wanted to name an "Honorary mention" for this contest.  Joel Dommel, a senior at the University of Hartford (Hartt School, theatre division) is that performer.  He just performed the lead in "Sunday in the Park with George" for his college as well as participating in the Goodspeed new musical series.  

Our FAN FAVORITE is Teddy Hall who had many fans there to vote for him. Teddy admits to just getting back into his favorite passion, which is performing.

And our FACEBOOK FAVORITE is: Jamison Daniels who won our contest for submitting his 30 second video on why he should be the next Broadway Star to our Facebook page. At last count he had 138 people who "liked" his video on our page.   That amount of likes and his creative content won him the prizes.
Here is his video:

AND finally after this wonderful competition we will have our next contest on our facebook page in conjunction with the event The New Paradigm Theatre is partnering with for the Bruce Museum in Greenwich.  Stay tuned....

ps:  below is a great link to a blog that I think is appropriate to anyone pursuing a career in the Arts.  "10 Ways being a theatre major prepared me for success".  I think I will link this blog to our site as well:
