Schools are closed and theaters have gone dark, but Broadway’s kid actors are still connecting virtually. Joshua Turchin from the Early Night Show with Joshua Turchin has announced there will be virtual editions of the show featuring interviews and musical performances by guests from Broadway, TV and Film. They will also spotlight student performers from across the United States whose school shows were cancelled or postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The segment will provide students with an alternative platform to showcase their talents – and for a much wider audience.
The Early Night Show with Joshua Turchin is available across all social media platforms with full videos on YouTube, Facebook Watch and www.theearlynightshow.com released every Mon., Wed. and Fri. at 3 p.m. ET.
“Since so many school performances were cancelled because of the Coronavirus situation, I wanted to give everyone a chance to be a part of The Early Night Show to show the world their talents,” says Turchin. “I am excited to provide an opportunity for others to go ‘On with the Show’ in a new segment dedicated to everyone whose shows were cancelled or postponed, and I get to accompany them in their performances!”
Students around the country are encouraged to email a video (up to 60 seconds long) of themselves singing a song from their cancelled or postponed show to firstname.lastname@example.org. Those submitting entries are asked to include their name, social media handle, and email address.
