Youthfest Talent Showcase is a Variety Show FUNDRAISER for the SLT scholarship program!
Thank you so much for contributing to the SLT Scholarship Fund by entering the showcase, and good luck on your audition! There will be one $500 check awarded to a junior or senior in high school the evening of Youthfest based on his/her performance in the Talent Showcase! Other monies raised go directly into scholarships for graduating seniors who have in some way contributed to Springfield Little Theatre either on a performance or technical level. (Scholarship recipients are announced at the Frannies, Springfield Little Theatre’s end-of-the-year volunteer celebration.)
There is an individual entrant fee of $20 that must accompany your Audition Form. Please make checks payable to Springfield Little Theatre. Please have your Audition Form completed and in hand at auditions if you have not dropped it by in advance.
Auditions will be held Sunday, January 8, beginning at 1:00 p.m. Please call Lorianne Dunn, Education Director, at (417) 869-3839 x21 to sign up for an audition time. Auditions will be held on the fourth floor of the Landers Theatre, 311 East Walnut, Springfield, MO. Please wear performance attire~your picture will be taken on this day to use in the program should you be cast in the showcase. (If selected to perform in the showcase, we reserve the right to ask you to edit your piece for appropriateness of dress, content or time if necessary.) Be prepared to present the exact selection that you would like to have considered to be slotted into the showcase. Please plan to bring your own piano accompanist or accompaniment cd if you will require one for your performance. If you are using a cd, please bring a copy that the theatre will keep to burn onto a master in the event that you are cast in the showcase. No underclassman act should exceed 2 minutes. Junior or senior acts should not exceed 3 minutes. Please cut your pieces appropriately. Please note—we are not looking for “works in progress”. Please audition with your selection performance ready. You will be evaluated “as it is”, not “as it could be.” (If selected to perform in the showcase, we will schedule a coaching session for your piece and we do reserve the right to edit your piece.) Each entrant may audition with a maximum of two entries.
The cast list will be posted on the doors of the Landers Theatre by noon Monday, January 9, and on our website at www. springfieldlittletheatre.org. If you are cast, we congratulate you now!
