Got an idea for a comedy song but don't have the musical ability to make it a reality? Got the music flowing inside of ya, but don't fancy yourself a Michael McIntyre? Got BOTH, and looking for a platform to flaunt it?? Get on in here you skilled Simons and talented Tabithas !!
We have the ADC for one night in Lent week 8 for an hour of songs, smiles and silliness ! ! Our aim is to create a platform for involvement in musical comedy without the pressures of being an ‘all rounder’, which we believe is the main reason people are often put off. Comedians can find musicians and create musical comedy without needing to be musical; musicians can get involved in comedy without needing to write funny lyrics; performers can do what they do best without having to write/compose.
✰✰✰✰✰ Anyone and everyone can do a mix of anything and everything. Collaboration collaboration collaboration ✰✰✰✰✰
With a large cast made up of both performers and writer/performers, the aim of the show is variety. As well as the whole-cast opening and finale, we will have solos, duets, and bigger group numbers ranging in size and scale. We are open to any application ideas and don’t want to constrain it to any particular style of music. It can be ballad, rap/spoken word, dance, musical mime, nursery rhyme, pop parody, barbershop, acoustic; anything and everything, so long as it’s MUSICAL, FUNNY and ORIGINAL. Get creative, try something new and surprise us!!
Please email email@example.com & firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas and questions. Please fire as many ideas as you want our way; they absolutely don't need to be fully formed or written (that's the idea!) and we will shape the show together and team people up soon after the application deadline. Register interest NOW - the sooner you get on our radar the more we can shape the show around your ideas!
COMPOSERS: if possible, send us a little bit about your experience, and ideally some music you have written. Also let us know if you would be up for working on more than one song!
LYRICISTS: no experience necessary, but it would be nice to see some of your ideas described in as much detail as you like, and maybe an example of some funny lyrics you have written.
(Auditions for performers will happen at the start of next term, but let us know in your applications if you are keen to perform your own stuff - it should be entirely possible!!)
Deadline: Saturday 6th January, 11pm
