Amateur Night at the Apollo: Opening Night with Chrisette Michele
February 17, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
Ticket Prices Start At Just $21
Wednesday, February 17th
The 2016 season begins this February with special guest artist R&B Soul singer/songwriter Chrisette Michele and a new line-up of contestants competing to win the title of Super Top Dog and a prize of $10,000. Hosted by the comedian Capone, Amateur Night begins with a pre-party featuring video and music by DJ Jess. The show also features master impressionist and tap dancer CP Lacey as the “Executioner,” who escorts contestants who have been booed off the stage and the Amateur Night house band led by music director, Michael Mitchell.
Aspiring musicians, singers, dancers, comedians, rappers and spoken word artists try their best to please the audiences that can make them an Apollo legend. Then get ready to cheer or jeer as you decide who stays and who gets booted off stage. At Amateur Night, you tell the performers to be good or be gone!
