Apollo: Brooklyn edition

Ever dreamed of performing in the Apollo Theater? Here's your chance. And you don't even have to leave Brooklyn to audition.

On Oct. 2, the Brooklyn Arts Council hosts auditions for "Amateur Night at the Apollo: Brooklyn Night, Celebrating Black Brooklyn Renaissance."

The event marks the first time that the famous Harlem landmark will host an all-Brooklyn night of performances. So, calling all you Brooklyn singers, dancers, rappers, comedians, spoken word artists, and performing groups of all ages, your time is now.

For those interested in audition, pay close attention:

* For live auditions, contestants should arrive early as entry is not guaranteed.
* No lip synching, singing along with track vocals or post-production engineering of vocals is permitted.
* The audition is open to singers, dancers, comedians, spoken word artists and musicians and other variety performances.
* Each live contestant will have up to 90 seconds to perform.
* Singers can bring a track on CD or sing a cappella. A band is NOT available.
* Musicians must bring their own instruments.
* Dancers should bring a CD.
* NO Profanity: comedians and spoken word artists – in-person and online - must prepare material appropriate for a family show.
* Children under 18 MUST be accompanied by an adult.
* Only children ages 5 to 15 will be considered for the “Child Star of Tomorrow” segment.

Please note: The judges will only see the first 300 acts, so please arrive early to secure your place.

Auditions at the Bedford Stuyvestant Restorration Corporation [1368 Fulton St. near Marcy Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, (718) 636-6900], Oct. 2 from 10 am-6 pm.
