Cabaret Variety Show

Act Proposal Deadline: January 4!

Are you a secret shower singer who always dreamed about being on stage? Do you dominate the air (or actual) guitar scene? Now’s your chance to perform in front of a real live audience!

This spring, the St. Sebastian Cabaret Players – a group of parishioners, neighbors and people who just like to perform – are hosting a variety show. We are looking for many different types of entertainment – music, dance, monologues, juggling, small group numbers, not-so-small group numbers, songs/pieces from Cabarets of years past – really anything that brings joy when performed!

Important Information:

*Show dates: April 20 & 21st 2018.

*Because we do not have a Musical Director each act will need to provide his/her/their own pre-recorded music and/or play the music themselves.

*Not sure what you would like to do? We will have a few group songs and possibly a group dance piece.

*In addition to the group songs and possible group dance piece, the writers of “Hello Milwaukee” are going to showcase some verses/chorus of 4 different songs from our next scripted musical play “Hello Milwaukee” and need a number of participants for these numbers! “Interested? Let me know and I will forward your information on!

*A specific rehearsal schedule will be set in early/mid-January. Rehearsals will take Saturday mornings and Sunday evenings beginning in late January.

*Some items to consider for your piece/act:

  • Humor is appreciated! Kindly remember it is a church event…!
  • Please – no pyrotechnics, open flames or sharp objects.
  • Please – no live animals. Once again, stuffed fish are more than welcome!
  • Some limitations may be necessary (length of piece, similarity to other pieces, questionable content)

Still a little shy? Then consider helping with lights, audio, decorations, house managing, running the bar or publicity! We want you, no matter how old you are, how much you can add or if you’re a parishioner – it’s a community event!
