Apollo Theater Set To Take Amateur Night Across The Pond

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The legendary Apollo Theater is taking its amateur night across the pond, and it’s looking for four talented and lucky contestants to represent the Big Apple.

The theater where dreams are born and legends are made is taking its amateur hour on the road in London, and just in time for the 2012 London Olympic games.

WCBS 880’s Monica Miller reports

Apollo Theater associate producer Laura Greer told WCBS 880’s Monica Miller that hundreds of people are expected to give it their all for a free five-day trip to the UK for the July 14th competition.

“Our desire and hope is that we will come out with at least four great contestants,” Greer said.

Those contestants will then compete again four British contestants at a theater in East London.

“We’re jokingly saying that it is a U.S. vs. UK competition,” Greer added.

The Apollo Theater is holding open auditions on Saturday and Sunday night, and the winners will be selected at the theater on Wednesday, May 23.
