Vegas local, Narée Asherian in the running for "Broadway's Next On Stage"
Recently, Broadwayworld.com announced BROADWAY'S NEXT ON STAGE, a new, online musical theatre singing competition for student performers sponsored by Broadway Records and Las Vegas theatre's own Narée Asherian is in the running, but she needs your vote!
Inspired by your favorite network TV singing contests, the site is inviting high school and college-aged students to submit videos of themselves performing a song from the musical theatre canon to enter the competition. Those moving on to the next round each week will have Friday through Monday to record and submit a new song for the next round of the competition. As they move down to the top 10, Broadway World will feature weekly live shows on Facebook with Broadway judges who will provide feedback and may move one of the contestants on to the next round by unanimous decision.
Both the college and high school winner will receive a Broadway prizepack with merch from the BroadwayWorld Theatre Shop, CDs from Broadway Records, and $1000 to a charity of their choosing, and both first-place winners will also have the opportunity to record a single, to be released by Broadway Records, with the profits donated to The Actors Fund.
Since kindergarten, Narée always believed her true calling was orthodontics. However, her upbringing in the entertainment capital of the world quickly made her change her tune! Before she turned 18, Narée began performing in cabarets and theaters in and around the Las Vegas Strip. She received nominations for Best Leading Actress in a Musical for her work in NEWSIES (Katherine) and FIDDLER ON THE ROOF (Hodel) in the Las Vegas Valley Theatre Awards, as well as Broadway World (Las Vegas) for Best Leading (and/or Supporting) Actress in a Musical for SPELLING BEE (Olive Ostrovsky) and NEWSIES (Katherine).
