The winner of each open mic is guaranteed a slot in the Round One performance, onstage at the Capitol Theatre in June 2022. Up to 20 acts (through auditions and open mic nights) are invited to Round One at the Capitol Theatre in June. A panel of judges selects the top six acts to move into the Semi-Finals. Then, the public is invited to view videos of the six performers and “like” the favorite performance. The three acts with the most “likes” move onto the Final Round at 1864 Burning of Chambersburg on July 16, 2022, where one act wins the $500 grand prize.
