We are looking for talent—ANY unique talent— for a special virtual event:
With Love, The Company Theatre
A Valentine’s Day Virtual Marathon
The Company Theatre will return with a flourish when the pandemic subsides, but in the meantime, we invite you to share a unique talent so our thousands of patrons remember you and the many gifts you have to offer. By running this Marathon, we will keep our patrons and performers engaged and excited for our re-entrance to live theatre.
We are looking for short pieces for a virtual marathon that will run all day on Valentine’s Day! Singing is welcomed, but we are also looking for other talents. We invite you to share a favorite recipe, recite a Shakespeare sonnet, tell your favorite story, read out loud a portion of a children’s book, show your dog training skills, guide a local history tour, play an instrument, give an art lesson, teach a craft, give a tutorial, perform a dance in an unexpected location. We’re looking for unique performances that will make this a memorable must-watch event!
Zoe and the Company Theatre Staff
Please see the guidelines below:
Style and tone notes: Upbeat, fun, silly, creative, happy. If you choose to sing a sappy love song, keep it short!
Song 2-3 minutes
A scene or Comedy Act 3-5 minutes
Other 5-8 minutes
Format: landscape (horizontal) on your smartphone
No inappropriate language please-this is an all-ages event.
For songs, either a live accompaniment or a karaoke track are fine, but if using a track, please make sure the backing track is not too loud or soft. One way to make sure it is high quality is to record the vocals separately and mix them together, then lip-sync to your recording.
We encourage you to make your video visually festive for Valentine’s Day–costumes, dramatic lighting, backdrops, props are all encouraged. Don’t be afraid to go big and be
“over the top”!
Suggested Topics: Pets, Comedy Skit or Stand up, Animation, Cooking, Fun History Lesson, Dance, How-To videos, Monologues, Scenes
Must include your name and location. We will accept more than one video if you have multiple talents you’d like to share. TCT reserves the right to edit if needed.
Deadline Monday, January 25th
