PASADENA, CA, (September 27, 2018) – The popular variety competition series “America’s Got Talent” returns to the Pasadena Civic Auditorium with its new spin-off, “America’s Got Talent: The Champions.” After three consecutive years as home to the original series’ auditions, the historic venue continues to shine brightly upon Pasadena as an entertainment destination for Hollywood and guests alike. Most recently, it was announced that Lythgoe Family Panto will also return to the Civic for their upcoming production of The Wonderful Winter of Oz, December 15-30.

Internationally known for the Tournament of Roses Parade and Rose Bowl Game, Pasadena also has a long history of being one of Hollywood’s prime filming locations for award-winning TV shows and movies. “Over the past three years, we’ve been fortunate to have ‘America’s Got Talent’ not only film inside the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, but showcase its remarkable beauty around the world,” said Jeanne O’Grady Goldschmidt, Executive Director of the Pasadena Convention & Visitors Bureau. “We are thrilled to have ‘America’s Got Talent: The Champions’ in Pasadena, and look forward to audience members enjoying our beautiful city.”

Built in 1932, during the Great Depression, the Pasadena Civic Auditorium has welcomed millions of patrons across Southern California. Inspired by Mediterranean Revival architecture, the 3,000 seat theatre has hosted countless concerts and plays, including but not limited to the Daytime Emmy Awards, NAACP Image Awards and in 1983, Motown 25 where Michael Jackson debuted the Moonwalk. The venue has also been used for film and television shows such as “Alias,” “American Idol,” “So You Think You Can Dance,” “Scandal” and “NCIS.”

The new spin-off series, “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” will feature the most incredible and memorable acts from previous seasons ready to wow America all over again. Top performers from seasons past will compete for a chance to win the first-ever winter title of America’s Got Talent.
