Casting Call – A Quarantunes Cabaret: Pride Edition

Show Information

Our first A Quarantunes Cabaret happened in June 2020 when COVID-19 first drastically changed our world. The show was LBMT’s first virtual production with a simple premise: Performers send in a video audition performing a musical theatre song they would like to sing, and those chosen will perform that song in the show. Last May, we hosted our second A Quarantunes Cabaret, but this time the show featured song from Disney musicals, movies, and television show.

We are now looking to cast our third A Quaratunes Tunes cabaret, which will be Pride themed! For this year’s show we are looking to cast gender-bending show tunes and numbers sung by LGBTQ2S+ Broadway characters. Because the spectrum of characters shown in Broadway musicals is still very limited, we leave the interpretation of the song and character up to you. Participation is open to anyone.

Audition Information

The premise of the show remains the same: 1) Pick your favourite Pride-themed musical theatre song. 2) Schedule an in-person audition slot by filling in the audition form below or record a video of yourself performing the song. Be sure to include any blocking or costumes you may have in mind. 3) If you’ve recorded a video, send the file or link to LBMT at The song sung by the performer in the audition will be the song performed in the show. Auditions don’t necessarily have to be solos this year. We are accepting submissions of duets or small ensemble numbers that feature more than one person.

While the actual performance will be accompanied by a three-piece, you may use a karaoke track for your in-person or video audition. The preference is that you would perform the entire song, but we will certainly accept cuts as well.

Everyone cast will meet three times with two of our performance coaches (Emily O’Kane, Lili Roussakis, and Andrew Wiseman) to fine-tune performances and bring them to the next level. However, this time we will also be including an additional three ensemble rehearsals in preparation for two ensemble songs that will start and end the show. Exact dates are below.
