About #searchforatwitterstar LIVE!

A unique LIVE Twitter event to find the next West End musical theatre leading lady and man.

#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).

Singer, actor and Radio 2 presenter ALED JONES is to host #searchforatwitterstarLIVE. Aled, who has recorded 28 albums, has just been announced as Lorraine Kelly’s co-host of ITV’s relauched Daybreak breakfast show from September.

The producers have also given more details of the event. “When considering the prizes for the winning male and female contestants, the #sfatsLIVE team could think of no better prize than to provide them with the opportunity to perform with leading West End stars, live on a West End stage. So we are delighted that KERRY ELLIS and JON LEE have agreed to support the aspiring West End stars with these performances and to make the event a night to remember for the winners.
