Roselands Center Taps Top Judges for Talent Search


Centro Roselands is thinking big for the Roselands Talent Search. The auditions are done, and the heats are on. For them, contestants will take the stage to perform one act each in from of a very distinguished panel of judges. It’s practically X Factor.

The judges for the heats include a veritable who’s who of theatre stars, including Daniel Slater (Mamma Mia, Fiddler on the Roof, Chicago), Monique Montez (Saturday Night Fever and Fiddler on the Roof), Mitchell Hicks (Boy from Oz, Tap Dogs and A Chorus Line), Kaylie Yee (Miss Saigon and Kylie Minogue tour), Shane Stepien (Wicked), Alicia Heymel, Kelli Grauer (Saturday Night Fever, Moulin Rouge and Bootmen), Josh Horner (Billy Elliot, Dancing with the Stars and A Chorus Line), Ebony Wright and Mark Hodge (Chicago and Priscilla Queen of the Desert). A mouthful and a half, yes, but also a crew more than qualified to judge talented performances.

The finals will be the real treat, though. This Saturday, the day after the heats conclude, the finalists will get up on stage, prepared to knock the socks off their judges. Those judges include musical theatre star Sean Rennie, Roselands Talent Quest veteran Belinda Rudd, and Dancing With the Stars winner and X Factor contestant Johnny Ruffo. They’ll crown a Junior and Senior Performer who will each undoubtedly go on to continue in the world of the performing arts—with the help of their shares of a $10,000 prize pool.
