Around Town | VIRTUAL You’re the Best GRAND FINALE | November 17th, 2020
The MAIN is thrilled to welcome the return of this year’s talented monthly “You’re The Best” winners as they take the virtual stage one last time, for a chance to WIN a GRAND PRIZE of $500!
The winner of the Grand Prize ($500) will be voted on by three guest judges; Kim Pearlman, Tom Lund and Mary Ferguson. Each judge is a Board Member of the non-profit, “Raising the Curtain Foundation.” The Foundation fundraises for the benefit of preserving and enhancing the Newhall Family Theatre for the Performing Arts and Board Members serve as arts leaders who connect the whole community to relevant, educational, entertaining, valuable and accessible programs. The Foundation also helps to enhance the Newhall Family Theatre for the Performing Arts, an inclusive performance venue for the community of Santa Clarita. The venue was generously offered to The MAIN for the “You’re The Best” Grand Finale Show, pre-‘Safer-At-Home’ ordinance. The MAIN continues to be grateful to our community for all of the support during our transition into online programming.
The all-inclusive talent show will still depend on audience involvement to select an Audience Choice Winner by voting for their favorite act via a shared link posted along with the show! The Audience Choice Winner (act with most votes) will receive a fabulous $50 gift card!
Voting starts Monday, November 16 at 7:00 p.m. and runs through Friday, November 20 at 11:45 p.m.! Even Steven will announce the ‘Audience Choice’ Winner on Saturday, November 21 at 12:00 p.m. The GRAND PRIZE of $500 will be announced at 2:00 p.m. on Facebook.
