CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
THE POLITICAL CABARET
WITH SPOLIGHTERS, BALTIMORE IMPROV GROUP, AND COHESION THEATRE COMPANY
Cohesion Theatre Company, Spotlighters Theatre, and Baltimore Improv Group are proud to announce The Political Cabaret, four nights of improv, sketch comedy, and music as we head into election season. Performances will be September 9, 10, 16, and 17 at 10:30 PM at Spotlighters following performances of their season opener, Marx in Soho. This groundbreaking collaboration will celebrate and mock hot-button issues in our society and draw in audiences from all three companies and the Baltimore community.
WHAT DO WE WANT FROM YOU?
So many things! We are looking for:
Sketches. We expect these to be 3-5 minutes long, but that’s flexible. They can be on the 2016 election and/or politics more broadly. Send us anything on those issues capturing our attention right now, from Brexit to Trump, from Supreme Court decisions to bathroom laws – as long as it’s entertaining! These should be quick and fun, full of punchlines and silliness.
Music. We are looking for original music or parodies of popular songs, again on the themes of the 2016 election and/or politics. Accompaniment should be kept simple; please submit recordings as well as a typed copy of the lyrics.
Resumes. If you are interested in directing or performing in your creation, send us your resume!
WHEN DO WE WANT IT?
The deadline for submissions is July 20, and rehearsals begin August 8.
Pieces that are submitted earlier than the deadline may receive more review.
Alice Stanley, Founding Artistic Producer, Cohesion Theatre Company
Cohesion Theatre Company seeks to showcase the unity that underlies much of what we consider separate. Society creates distinctions: between classical and new plays, between artistic disciplines, between companies, and between people of different race, class, and gender. CTC will examine these distinctions through the lens of live theatre with the goal of reaching a deeper understanding of what makes us individuals and what makes us all human. Cohesion actively seeks out other theatrical professionals, both individuals and organizations, and encourages cross promotion, co-production, and collaboration in every facet of the work we do.
Cohesion's 2015/16 Season is dedicated to the memory of Nicholas Delaney. 1981 - 2016
