Spring Stream Soirée Auditions

Can you feel it? Spring is not too far away, and we want to welcome it with a show! That’s where YOU come in! We are planning a variety-show-style production similar to Foster Follies for Friday, April 16, at 7pm (after Easter and after tax day). We are looking for performers as well as a host/MC for the event. Here are some notes about the specifics:

Event format

  • The event will be streamed on this website.
  • Performances will be pre-recorded videos.
  • The host will introduce the show and chat with performers before and after each video.
  • The event will be family-friendly, so should the content of the submissions.
  • Content can be anything*: skits, monologues, puppetry, magic acts, comedy, mimes, short films or songs, preferably not longer 5 minutes long.

* If using copyrighted material in your performance, make sure you are permitted to do so. For songs/music, check that it is covered by ASCAP (https://www.ascap.com/repertory). For other material, check with the licensor.

Scripts available

Are you an actor in search of material to perform? Kevin Broccoli has given us permission to perform any of his short plays available here.

Audition
