Winners will receive exclusive workshops with some of Cairo Show’s veteran stars and have the chance to join a Cairo Show production!
To all you aspiring thespians, your golden ticket to stardom might just happen this Ramadan. The theatre production company Cairo Show is launching an online singing, acting and dancing competition called ‘Show Us Your Talent’. Their productions include some of the most iconic local shows to hit the stage, most notably 2019’s King Lear adaptation starring Yehia El-Fakharany, and a theatre production of Aladdin starring Ahmed Ezz and Tara Emad.
The competition calls for talented performers of all ages across the Arab world to showcase their theatrical gravitas online by sending them a homemade video during the month of Ramadan. Cue the jazz hands and warm up those vocals for a chance to razzle dazzle your way into stardom.
Led by Egyptian film and theatre director Magdy El-Hawary, the competition will consist of several challenges inspired by Cairo Show’s slate of works, and the jury will be made up of some of Cairo Show’s brightest stars and veteran. The winners will be announced right after Eid Al Fitr. Those lucky few will win a series of one-on-one mentorship workshops with the talents behind Cairo Show’s works, and a chance to be cast in one of Cairo Show’s future productions.
