Open auditions for the 2015 season of CMS “Where Stars Get Their Start” will be held Oct. 7, in the Paul A. Johnston Auditorium located on the main campus of Johnston Community College in Smithfield.

CMS “Where Stars Get Their Start” is an opportunity for aspiring artists to perform in a state-of-the-art facility with a professional band and back-up singers in a two-day, multiple show stint. Guest performers participate in a week of intense rehearsals which culminates into a full-length stage performance showcasing the talents of each guest performer. Shows are produced by the JCC Performing Arts Staff four times a year with auditions held yearly that attract talented performers from North Carolina and surrounding states. Guest performers sing together in multiple group numbers and each performs a solo.

Pre-registration is required and forms may be picked up in the lobby of the Paul A. Johnston Auditorium, by calling the JCC box office at 919-209-2099, at, or by emailing
