Tituss Burgess & More Join Carner and Gregor's 6th Annual BARELY LEGAL SHOW-TUNE EXTRAVAGANZA at 54 Below Lineup

Tituss Burgess (The Little Mermaid, Jersey Boys), Eric Michael Krop (Godspell), "Barely Legal" alum Danielle Wade (Winner "Over the Rainbow Canada," Dorothy in Wizard of Oz North American tour) and host Natalie Weiss (Les Miserables, Everyday Rapture, "American Idol") join the selected cast of musical theater writing team Sam Carner and Derek Gregor's 6th Annual "Barely Legal Show-Tune Extravaganza" in performance on Thursday, August 21 at 7:00pm and 9:30pm at New York's premier cabaret venue 54 Below, 254 W 54th St. The annual "Barely Legal" program invites a select group of college student performers with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend week-long intensive workshops led by Broadway stars, casting directors, agents, actors and more, culminating in concerts at 54 Below.

Deemed by Playbill.com as one of the top "contemporary musical theatre songwriters you should know," Carner & Gregor present the summer concert "Barely Legal Show-Tune Extravaganza" each year, featuring a cast of up-and-coming college student performers and recent graduates from around the world. The cast, selected by a panel of industry judges based on video submissions and workshop sessions at Indiana University, will make their New York concert debut joined by a Broadway band and various Broadway stars (former guests include Tony Award nominee Bobby Steggert, Andrew Kober, and Sarah Stiles) in an unforgettable experience for participants and audiences alike. This year's finalists were selected out of a pool of over 100 applicants. Some applicants, even if not chosen for "Barely Legal", have been brought in by casting agent judges for Broadway auditions.

Weiss, Burgess, and casting director/producer Michael Cassara (NYMF, NAMT) led this year's dynamic panel of judges, which also included composer and music director Will Van Dyke (Kinky Boots), casting director Jason Najjoum (Prospect Theater Company), agent Samantha Stoller (Abrams Artists), and director/choreographer Emily Maltby (The Lion, Under My Skin).

This year, produced by Bandits Roost Entertainment, "Barely Legal" introduces a new component to the already impressive offerings to the cast - workshops and classes. In addition to pairing the students with Carner & Gregor and producers from the Bandits Roost team, these workshops and classes will introduce students to Broadway stars, casting directors, agents, actors, teachers, and more, ensuring an enhanced experience for the young performers.

Alums of Carner & Gregor's "Barely Legal Show-Tune Extravaganza" include Danielle Wade - who is set to perform this year, Lora Lee Gayer (Young Sally in the recent Broadway production of Follies!), Blair Goldberg (Carrie Off-Broadway and Sister Act 1st National Tour), Ashley Park (currently appearing in Mamma Mia), and many more performers currently working Off-Broadway, regionally, and on national tours.
