In addition to the cash and prize package, RISING STAR offers networking opportunities with celebrity judges, fantastic exposure, and valuable live stage experience. The competition is hosted by actress and comic Emily McNamara (NEWSICAL The Musical, Billy On The Street, HBO’s Vinyl). The top 12 finalists were chosen from over 60 auditionees.
Every Monday Night Carly Ozard can be seen as a regular in Jim Caruso’s Cast Party, an award winning experience at the legendary Birdland Jazz Club! Jim Caruso’s Cast Party is a wildly popular weekly soiree that brings a sprinkling of Broadway glitz and urbane wit to the legendary Birdland in New York City every Monday night. It’s a cool cabaret night-out enlivened by a hilariously impromptu variety show. Showbiz superstars hit the stage alongside up-and-comers, serving up jaw-dropping music and general razzle-dazzle. For the past nine years, it’s been the ultimate spot to mix and mingle with Manhattan show folk and their fans.
