created and proudly produced by RUSSELL SCOTT
NOW IN ITS 6TH PHENOMENAL YEAR!
UK talent platform
the independent UK talent platform for
emerging Musical Theatre professionals
We identify with the thousands of talented performers out there, often lacking in opportunity to launch or develop their careers in what is a very competitive industry. Performers are often type-cast or offered castings which don't allow them to display their full potential.
'New Talent Spotlight' is not a competition or showcase. 'New Talent Spotlight' was created to serve three main purposes:
● To find, develop and give opportunity to emerging professional talent
● To produce high quality, high profile productions
● To promote live music and bring quality entertainment to quality venues
'New Talent Spotlight' was created and developed by producer and director, Russell Scott, with a view to finding, developing and giving opportunity to emerging professional talent.
In 2009, he began producing a number of sophisticated cabaret shows for PizzaExpress Music, working with emerging professional talent from the world of Musical Theatre.
Since then, shows have been produced to celebrate the music and lyrics of musical legends including Frank Wildhorn, Leslie Bricusse, Johnny Mercer, Howard Ashman, Alan Menken, Stephen Schwartz, Don Black and Sir Tim Rice.
We have been delighted to receive such wonderful support from the industry and those whose music has been celebrated, including Don Black and Sir Tim Rice who both supported and attended their respective shows, which received public acclaim.
New Talent Spotlight has raised over £12,000 for charity as well as holding its first West Charity Gala in 2012.
Russell Scott has become known for finding great talent and producing top notch, sophisticated productions at high quality venues, receiving overwhelming support, standing ovations and public acclaim.
Our productions are professional and performers are paid, though we also produce charity shows. Productions are held in high-class, sophisticated venues across the UK. We write our own productions, which are both innovative and dynamic. We strive to produce slick, exciting and memorable productions, giving our audiences insight and an 'experience' to be remembered.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
We look for emerging solo singers of exceptional standard, hugely talented, with great natural musicianship, charisma and performance and artistic quality.
We look for sophisticated performers with natural talent within the Musical Theatre genre. We are NOT looking for pop artists.
We are looking for polished professional performers who can deliver and communicate their songs with conviction and emotion.
Aside from the wonderful opportunity of working on innovative productions with great artists and showcasing your talents at high profile venues, this is an opportunity to be seen. We regularly invite industry professionals and experts, TV and radio execs, record companies and a&r execs, critics and journalists, producers, programmers, managers and agents, song-writers and performers to our productions.*
* subject to availability
We are not an agency. We work closely with agents and managers to find the best talent around and give opportunity in our productions.
"In a competitive industry,
performers need more opportunities -
'New Talent Spotlight' has been created to bring together and collaborate with leading organisations to give talented performers the breaks they need"
