Triangle Rising Star Awards

When: Sun., June 2, 8 p.m. 2013

In a season finale of "High School Musical" come to life, the finest high school performers from a 13-county region—including Wake, Durham, Orange and Chatham—take the stage to belt their hearts out and, just maybe, to launch their careers. Judges have been attending area school productions and have invited the top performers to a closed-door audition on June 1. A selection committee will narrow the field for this Sunday's public event, at which Best Actor and Actress will be awarded $1,000 scholarships. These two are literally Broadway bound: They head to New York for master classes and private coaching from theater pros before they compete in the National High School Musical Theater Awards on July 1 at Minskoff Theatre. Swallow hard for them—casting agents will be in the crowd. But at DPAC, you get to see them before their names go on marquees along the Great White Way. —Chris Vitiello
