“I know most of the people here and I have an idea of how much money you make, so don't be cheap,” jested Jack Tomayko to a packed theater on May 2.

The scene unfolded at Point Park University's Lawrence Hall, where a live performance and silent auction officially raised the curtain on Broadway Bound!, a benefit showcasing a select group of seniors from the school's Conservatory of Performing Arts who are headed to the Big Apple for an audition in front of industry pros.

Created 10 years ago by Jack Allison and John Shepard, the current cast of potential Next Big Things includes Maurissa Auer, Kevin Bianchi, Lily Davis, Heidi Friese, Grant Haralson, Emily Hin, Brittany Jaime, Brandon Lambert, Katie Mancuso, Laura Melchiorre, Abby Quatro, Mandie Russak, Nicole Soriano, Alex Walton, Julia Warner, Jordon Weinhold and Zach Weinrich.
