What the heck is “Karaoke Idol?”
Well, aside from being a fundraiser to support Lodestone’s 10th (and final!) season and the production of “Closer Than Ever,” it’s a chance to sing and compete for cool prizes. (Of course, there are free appetizers, raffle prizes, drink specials and cool peeps to hang with if you don’t want to sing.)
Karaoke Idol would be incomplete without judges, and so Lodestone has lined up celebrity judges Michelle Krusiec from the film Saving Face; Michael Orland, assistant music director and vocal coach from American Idol; and Ryan O’Connor from the The Ryan O’Connor Show on YouTube. I’m guessing Michelle is Paula, but I’m not sure who gets to be Simon and Randy…
And the night wouldn’t be complete without a special sneak peek performance from the cast of “Closer Than Ever.” (Yes, that’s the good-looking cast in this photo!)
“Closer Than Ever” runs August 8th – 30th, 2009 — you’ll hear more about this production as the date gets closer — but if it’s anywhere as fun as Lodestone After Dark or Ten to Life, then you’re in for a treat!
Karaoke Idol will be held this Sunday night, July 19th, 2009 from 6:00pm – midnight and there is even a cheap pre-sale price if your ticket order is received by the 17th. Details after the jump!
