    • Students must be a CT resident or student to participate ages ranging from 7 to 19
  • The window for submissions runs from April 10 to April 30
    • The Palace will continue to post videos through May before announcing a winner and may extend the deadline for video submissions if more people want to enter and quarantine continues
    • Several COVID-based song parodies, Broadway musical covers, as well as covers of hit songs have been submitted
  • The winner will largely be determined by each post’s Instagram engagement
  • To enhance their chances of winning students should:
    • Like & Share their posts to get out the word and earn more votes
    • The Palace will share weekly rundowns of the videos on Facebook
    • The winner will receive a Palace prize pack
  • To submit your video, DM the video to @palace_theater or send a dropbox link to kimmey@palacetheaterct.org

The Palace’s primary purpose is to revitalize the Greater Waterbury community through the presentation of the performing arts and educational initiatives in collaboration with area cultural and educational institutions.
