Triple Sensation follows the performers as they are led through a sequence of demanding auditions, a phenomenal Master Class led by industry luminaries and subsequent workshop presentations, to the Finale. From the cross-country Open Call to the Marquee Panel sessions, where the competitors must prove their talents to a stellar group of internationally-acclaimed award-winning theatre legends, every moment is captured in high definition, pristinely displaying the nuances that will ultimately make the difference for one gifted performer. That winner will receive a $150,000 performing arts scholarship to attend any theatrical training institution of his/her choice in the world.

Triple Sensation received unanimous critical acclaim in its first season, and was embraced by arts educators, cultural institutions, ACTRA and the American Federation of Musicians among others.
