Competition Results from Access Broadway!

April 27, 2016

Last weekend the Annie Mac Dance Co.  and Garden Street Musical Theater company traveled  to Atlantic City to compete at the esteemed Access Broadway Talent Competition.

 

Students ages 8 - 14 have been working since January on their competition pieces which included group and solo dances in addition to musical theater, vocal, and acting pieces. Our students competed against thousands of performers from the Tri-State area. We were so proud of the level of growth that our dancers, singers, and actors have shown and were delighted with their great successes throughout the weekend!

 

Each of the 76 entries submitted received high rankings at the competition, with the majority of the pieces receiving a high gold or platinum ranking. See below a few of the student highlights from this year!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finn Mcloughlin: Finn swept the competition receiving 4 platinum awards for his Vocal and Acting categories. Finn won 4 first place awards in Singing/Acting divisions as well as Best Actor, and Best Singer for his age group. In addition to winning the title of ‘Best All Star Vocalist 8 and Under’, Finn also won the top award of the competition as ‘Young Best All Star Performer’. Finn and Georgia Brewer won a star award for Best Vocal Duet/Trio for their rendition of ‘Happy Days/Get Happy’ from the Judy Garland show. Finn was one of the audition winners selected to perform in the opening number at the Access Broadway National Competition held on the Broadway Stage at the Hudson Theater in NYC!

 

 

 

 

Madalynn Mathews: Madalynn competed in 10 total pieces including Solo Lyrical, Solo Acting, Musical Theater Trio, Hip Hop Trio, Lyrical Trio, Musical Theater Group, and Musical Theater Solo. Madalynn won 1st Place in the Best Solo Vocal Broadway 11 to 12 category with ‘I Know The Truth’ from Aida. Madalynn also won Best Jr. Vocalist and was the runner up for Jr. Best All Star Performer for 9-12.

 

Brianna Dominguez: Brianna won the title of ‘Teen Best All Star Vocalist’. She received platinum rankings for ‘Out Here On My Own’ (vocal ballad), ‘Breathe’ (Solo Vocal Broadway from In the Heights), and ‘Rolling In the Deep’ (vocal up-tempo). Brianna also received a High Gold ranking for her duet with sister Annalise Dominguez ‘Anything You Can Do’ from Annie Get Your Gun. Brianna was one of the audition winners selected to perform in the opening number at Access Broadway nationals in July on the Broadway Stage at the Hudson Theater in NYC!

 

 

 

Stella Borelli: Dance Captain and triple threat Stella Borelli received first runner up ‘Teen Best All Star performer’. She competed with a Solo Jazz dance to ‘Confident’, a monologue titled ‘Cookies’, and a solo vocal Broadway song ‘Johnny One Note’ from Babes in Arms. Stella participated in a group Broadway Vocal Production piece of ‘Everybody Says Don’t’ from Anyone Can Whistle which received 2nd place in its category.

 

Ava Guzman: Ava received a first place award for Best Solo Contemporary Dance for 11-12 for her dance ‘Still’. She was also nominated for Best Jr. dancer for the same piece. Ava, Stella Borelli, and Madalynn Mathews received a High Gold for her Hip Hop trio ‘Charlie’s Angels’ choreographed by Hayley Bochner. Ava also participated in the Group Broadway Production of ‘Longest Night of the Year’ from Garden Street’s original musical (written and composed by Dan McLoughlin). Longest Night of the Year took home 2nd place in its category.

 

These are just a few highlights from the amazing performers and students of Garden Street. We could not be more proud of each of our competition team members and are looking forward to taking our pieces to the National Competition in July!
