Auditions Announced for GENDER BENDER REVUE at Mason Community Players

MCP_sm logoMason Community Players Celebrates 5 Years of Gender Bender!

MCP is pleased to announce auditions for the fifth annual Gender Bender Revue. After a successful virtual performance in 2020, we are excited to return to the stage for in-person performances, and we hope to welcome new performers as well as familiar faces to participate!

To celebrate half a decade of Gender Bender, this year’s performance will feature throwbacks to fan-favorite performances from previous years, as well as plenty of new performances you won’t find anywhere else.

We are looking for a diverse group of performers from all over the Greater Cincinnati area. Join us for a rare opportunity to perform pieces like they’ve never been done before. This is your chance to perform a song, dance, or spoken word traditionally performed by another gender.

All different forms of performance are welcomed: singers, actors, dancers,…and anything else!

Please note that the production team is accepting (and encouraging) virtual auditions. However, rehearsals and performances will be in-person.

What to Prepare:

  • 1-2 minute video of your performance
  • You do not need to submit something gender-bent, just show us your talent and we will work with you to find the perfect fit!
  • If you do have something in mind, you are encouraged to use that for your audition.
  • If auditioning in person: see details below.
  • If auditioning virtually: Please send your video (or link to your video) and a resume detailing your theatre experience to genderbendermcp@gmail.com by 10:00 PM on Saturday, September 11th.

  • Location: 4047 Retreat Drive Cincinnati, OH 45241
