First Reformed Church of Schenectady and Room for All are partnering to host an in-person Miscast Cabaret to celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride Month on Saturday, June 25, 2022.
Miscast refers to an intentional subverting of previous casting in a theatrical performance. Currently, organizers are calling for auditions from volunteer performers, who will be supported as they step into roles that the strictures of age, shape, gender, orientation, or ethnicity have not allowed them to play in the past. All for the love of music, we look forward to celebrating inclusion on the stage, in the church and in our communities!
Interested performers who are age 17 or older can submit video recordings of up to one and a half minutes of their proposed number, either as an attachment or a link to email@example.com. Please include ‘Miscast Audition’ in the subject line, and share your name, pronouns if you are comfortable sharing them, and a little bit about why you chose this particular piece or what this role means to you. Auditions must be received by May 15 for consideration!
Additionally, First Reformed Church of Schenectady is looking for LGBTQ+ artists to submit works to be featured in their atrium exhibition space during the month of June. Please contact Lisa if you’d like more information on submitting your artwork.
