The Final Performances will be held at the Peter Martin Wege Theater – home of the Grand Rapids Ballet 341 Ellsworth Ave SW, in downtown Grand Rapids.

The top three Final Performances, determined by a line-up of local celebrity judges, combined with an audience text vote, will share nearly $2,000 in cash and prizes.

This year’s prizes include:

  • First Place – $1,000 cash
  • Second Place – $500 cash
  • Third Place – $250 cash

One selected performance or group of performers will also be booked throughout the 2016-2017 calendar year at various downtown Grand Rapids locations, promoting themselves, their act, and GR’s Big Talent 2017. (Locations and performances will be determined at a later date.)
