Teen Auditions for GLOW UP, a Short Film with The Carnegie’s DRAG FUSION PROJECT

MISC_Glow Up AuditionsSparkle Leigh is working to introduce StoryTime 2.0 (StoryTime program for Teens & Families!) Taking over 2 decades of experience working with Summer Camps, Theatre Camps, Nationally/ Internationally touring Children’s Theatre, a Creative Arts Pre- School, School for Differently- abled/ Nuero- diverse youth, & a misfit Muppet/ 2-D Puppet Show on YouTube for LGBTQ+ & Ally Families- This Glitter Clown is working to help create some Brave & Safe Space for LGBTQ+ Teens & their loved ones here in the tri- state.

This Short film is largely cast, but the last Puzzle piece is a kick butt group of Teen Campers who will be featured in a Outdoor Volunteer event & a magical Theatre Dance rehearsal scene at the end with Fog, Glow Sticks, & a WHOLE bunch of Creative FuN!

Dan Davidson (Sparkle’s assistant) & Jules Breslin (Choreographer to the SUPAHstarZ) will be running this audition & will help answer any questions day of! We will be in the Social Hall space of Mt. Auburn Presbyterian Church- where GLSEN meets weekly above TreeHouse, starting in Sept., post- Covid lock down measures.

There will be 3 Audition Blocks on July 31st!

  • 1-2pm In Person @ TreeHouse Space.
  • 2-3pm In Person @ TreeHouse Space.
  • 3-4pm via Zoom on Zoom!! <3*

Some/most of the choreo will be taught in a “Flash Mob,” style learning via videos that Jules will be putting out & the choreo will be pieced together at an early rehearsal the day of the shoot! (Aug. 15th from roughly 9am-6pm, bring a Book, there will be some Pizza!)

Please email treehousecinci@gmail.com with a Headshot/ Resume & a short paragraph about what makes YOUR heart GLOW! <3*

Please also specify your choice of time slots.

Parents & Guardians will be allowed to wait in the TreeHouse Office space below the Social Hall where last items of registration & any/all remaining paperwork can be taken care of.

This initial project is a pilot for a much larger venture & while all roles will be considered volunteer THIS time, every teen cast member will get info about booking a Weekend spot in Sept. for a FREE Danophoto Headshot session, bring your cool Gay Uncle or LGBTQ+ Aunt along to the shoot! (Great for folks needing their first or updated shots for other auditions!)

Xenia Area Community Theatre
Aug. 28-29
Sorg Opera House [Middletown]

The Sisters of Perpetual Sewing miss the excitement of the old days when they were saving convents and reuniting long-lost families. So when they learn that the orphanage where Paul and Kate grew up is in peril, they can’t wait to come to the rescue. Everyone pitches in to mount a play to raise money, but it’s no easy feat when Kate’s expecting any day, Sally’s hiding from stage-fright-stricken Paul after another flight from the altar, Mother Superior’s acting is unexpectedly narcoleptic, and the sisters’ award-winning wine keeps getting switched with the grape juice.

  • Sat, Aug. 28 at 8pm
