LBMT is looking to cast its third annual Valentine’s Cabaret entitled Everybody Say Love!, which is an inclusive date night that celebrates love in all forms, shapes, and sizes. The show features a selection of scenes and songs from some of Broadway’s most memorable characters and will be hosted by a local drag queen. From Rent to Avenue Q to The Rocky Horror Picture Show, this production is sure to have something that will add a little spark to your Valentine’s Day weekend.
The show will mainly consist of solo and duet numbers with larger ensemble numbers to start and end the show. Performers will have the opportunity to participate in at least one solo or duet, as well as, one or two larger ensemble numbers. We are looking to cast ten people in the show, and everyone participating in the show must be fully vaccinated – no exceptions will be made.
The show will be presented to in-person audiences for a total of 4 performances from February 11-13 and will be hosted by a local drag queen. The show is being co-directed by Mathieu Charlebois and Morgan Coughlan and musically directed by Sabrina Tang with production support from Joy Mwandemange.
Auditions, rehearsals, and performances will be adhering to current COVID-19 protocols set in place by the Province of Ontario and Ottawa Public Health. The bulk of rehearsals will take place in the Alta-Vista area of Ottawa mainly on Wednesday evenings from 7-9:30 and Saturdays from 10:30am-1:30pm.

Please prepare 32 bars of a musical theatre song that fits the style of the show and best demonstrates your vocal abilities. Our music director will be able to provide you with piano accompaniment.
You may receive a short scene that you might be asked to read during your audition (it will be a cold read). Please look it over as you are waiting for your audition to begin.
Please Note: You do not need to memorize the scene. You may be given further instruction about the scene by the director at your audition. You may also not be required to read the scene at all.
A session of callback auditions may be held in the evening on Monday, December 5 at the discretion of the artistic team and may only require certain individuals. They are not an indication of whether you will be cast in the show, or are up for receiving a specific role in the production. Callbacks may not be required if the artistic team does not feel they are necessary for casting the production.
