ELIGIBILITY
This event is intended for performers without professional representation. If you already have an agent or manager, please do not audition for Industry Showcase Night. If you participated in last year’s showcase, you are not eligible to audition again until next year. You must attend a live audition to be considered for the showcase. We do not accept video submissions for this event.

PREPARATION
Prepare one minute of material – a song (bring sheet music; an accompanist will be provided), a monologue or a combination of both. Or just tell a joke! You could even make up a commercial or tell a story. Not sure what to prepare? Just show up and we’ll have mini commercials for you to read when you get there! Industry professionals are looking for “raw” talent. What you perform is less important than showing your personality. There is no cost to audition or participate in this event.

Special note: Please keep material age-appropriate, without the use of any profanity. If you are doing a monologue, please keep it comedic and contemporary. Avoid dramatic/tragic monologues and any kind of accent (we want to hear how you sound when you’re just being yourself!). While you may incorporate movement or choreography into your material, please don’t perform a dance if it doesn’t involve you speaking or singing at some point.
