KC SuperStar competition to crown top high school singer in metro area

Twenty-two area high school students  from across the metro area will have the chance to win $5,000 as they compete to be chosen as Kansas City’s best high school singer in the May 6 semi-finals of KC SuperStar.

The semi-final competition will start at 7 p.m. at the Lewis and Shirley White Theatre on the Jewish Community Campus, 5801 W. 115th St., in Overland Park. The public is invited to attend; admission is free with a suggested donation of two cans of food for Harvesters – The Community Food Network.


The 22 high school singers were selected from more than 150 teens who auditioned in March. The semi-finalists are busy rehearsing their musical numbers with the help of coaches, who themselves are professional singers.


The semi-finals will be judged by a panel of Kansas City professionals in the entertainment industry including Jeannie Beachwood, Martin City Melodrama; Anthony Edwards, musical director for Starlight Theater, American Heartland Theater and Unicorn Theatre; and Mark Edleman, CEO and founder of Theater League.

The judges will narrow the field to eight to 10 finalists that will go on to the finale event on August 29, at Yardley Hall, Johnson County Community College. Comedian George Wendt, known best for his role as “Norm” on the TV hit-series “Cheers”, will emcee the finals with a panel of professionals in the entertainment field serving as judges. The judges will narrow the finalists down to three. From those three the audience will vote to decide the premier KC Superstar.
