At the audition, performers will vie to become finalists in one of the show’s five competition categories: high school and middle school dance solo, high school and middle school vocal solo, and dance group performance. The audition judges will select the 28 finalists who will take the Mizner Park Amphitheater stage on March 7.  The Future Stars show is professionally staged, with rock star quality sound and lighting. The Amphitheater is fully tented for this event. Future Stars is a true community event, with all but the front seats free to the public.

Performers in the Future Stars competition represent schools and performance educators from all over South Florida. Middle school and high school students who live in any of the coastal counties from Monroe County to Brevard County are eligible to audition. 

The mission of Rotary’s Future Stars Performing Arts Competition is to give South Florida’s talented high school and middle school performers a professional quality production worthy of their amazing talent.  Many Future Stars alumni have gone on to college-level study at prestigious music and dance programs and to professional careers in the performing arts. The Rotary Club of Boca Raton annually awards a need-based performing arts scholarship, and has over the years helped many Future Stars participants with scholarship assistance so they could follow their dream of a career in the performing arts.
