URGENT: Volunteer Performers Needed for Evening Variety Show Sat April 10th

MISC_Casting call2Looking for several “acts” to fill out a 30-minute vaudeville style variety show (with a little burlesque sprinkled in), with acts from 1920’s -1940’s . Singers (soloists, duos, barbershop etc), dancers (Ballroom, burlesque, etc) , juggler, magician, or anything else appropriate for adult entertainment etc.  Performance will occur as entertainment while desert is served for annual ball of local charitable organization.  Anticipate approximately 200 attendees.

Acts scheduled to date average 4-7 minutes in length. Need 2-3 more acts. Know it’s late, but if you’re a performer suffering withdrawal and need to get in front of a live crowd, please contact me ASAP!  Karaoke King with killer Louie Armstrong, Bing Crosby, Sinatra or Dean Martin? Bessie Smith, Kate Smith, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Judy Garland, Andrews Sisters or any number of femme fatals from those decades? Time is of the essence. All we need is you/your small group and sheet music for piece you’d sing, dance or perform to as it will be played live by the band (7 piece orchestra).  Hoping to avoid need for sound system and recording devices to play tracks. 

Event is at Hotel in Sharonville and performance will occur in 7:30 – 8:30 pm range.  Live band.  3 short rehearsals prior to event. All need not be attended. Final organizational meeting Thursday, April 1st 6:30pm at Arts Center at Dunham.  Rehearsal with band Tuesday and Wednesday evening, April 6th and 7th.  Exact time and location TBD.

If able to  join with other local performers volunteering their time and talent, please contact Carrie Mees ASAP at clmees@fuse.net or 513-295-8727 (text or call).
