We offer a 24/7/365 online directory of the country’s best educational performers, motivators, and entertainers for the youth market. Premier-Showcase.com lists hundreds of talented individuals and groups ready to visit schools in your area and bring your assemblies to life.

Our sophisticated search options allow program directors to quickly find exactly the kind of talent they want quickly — by location, category, and the audience’s educational level. Many performers offer slide shows or videos of their performances.

Meet performers in person at our annual Showcase event near Chicago

Lloyd Bachrach, founder Premier Showcase, welcomes the audience at the event.

Every September, we host a high-energy, one-day exhibition for entertainers, educators, and coordinators for the youth market. For attendees, the event is an opportunity to be entertained, educated, and introduced to the top performers in their region. For performers, it's a chance to preview the opportunities for their next assembly or school function. In our experience, both attendees and performers return year after year to see who’s new and meet the people they missed the previous year. There’s no event for educators and performers as fun, energetic, and rewarding as Premier Showcase Chicago.

Our mission and our commitment

We firmly believe that early and frequent exposure to the performing arts supports and encourages growth in all developmental areas. That’s why we're committed to gathering the best available talent in one place — to make it easier for everyone who’s committed to the education and development of our youth.
