The Newcomershow was founded in 2000 and scheduled for two shows a year until 2003. Due to
increasing audience interest the show days were also extended. Since 2015 participants can show
their talent to the audience and professionals on four occasions.
Although, the Newcomershow is an international competition, our aim is to connect artists with experts.
Many artists achieved their first contract at a German Variety theatre because of participating
at our festival.
The Krystallpalast Varieté Leipzig also uses the opportunity to discover rising talents at the
Newcomershow. Numerous former participants returned to our stage being part in one of our
shows at Krytsllapalast Varieté. So you can discover familiar faces of past Newcomer festivals
at allmost each of their show productions.
