Showin' Off — A Benefit for Langhorne Players


Call for Acts

Deadline for submissions: June 15, 2017

Auditions to be held: First week of July, 2017

Performances: Sept 22 and 23, 2017

Langhorne Players is once again holding our special revue called Showin’ Off — A Benefit for Langhorne Players on September 22 and 23 at the Spring Garden Mill in Tyler State Park, Newtown, PA. Directors Jack Bathke and Rob Norman are inviting any alumni of Langhorne Players (anyone who has been involved in a Langhorne Players production in any capacity) to propose an act for the event. The previous Showin’ Off, produced 5 years ago, was a SMASH HIT and included more than 15 acts from plays staged at Langhorne Players and elsewhere.
 
We are looking for performances that last a maximum of 8-10 minutes and can be a song, monologue, comedy bit, drama scene or other form of entertainment. There is no limit to the number of people who can participate in your performance. You will need to provide your own music, costumes and props, if any. The stage will be set in a “black box” fashion. Our MC will introduce your performance, so he/she can frame it for the audience if needed. Your performance will be part of each night’s show on both September 22 and 23.
 
You can email either Jack or Rob with your Showin’ Off act idea. The deadline for submissions is June 15, 2017 and auditions will be held the first week of July.
 
Even if you’re not planning to perform in Showin’ Off, be sure to put the dates on your calendar to attend one of the incredible nights!

General information

ACTORS

Langhorne Players is a non-equity theater that welcomes new talent who share a commitment to producing thoughtful and provocative plays of the highest quality. Each season we try to offer a variety of plays with an array of challenging roles suitable for a wide demographic. All casting is done through open auditions supervised by the play’s director. Audition times and dates are posted in advance on our website as well as other area theater callboards.

Rehearsals usually run several hours four days a week during non-business hours for six or seven weeks. Participation in set and prop construction is encouraged but subject to an individual’s schedule and abilities.

If you have a love of acting and an appreciation for thought provoking plays, please consider Langhorne Players. Email us for more information. 

Langhorne Players is a non-profit, non-union, all volunteer theater company.

DIRECTORS

Our slate is usually in place by October. Prospective directors are encouraged to read all of the plays in the upcoming season. If you are passionate about a play and would like to direct it, email us. Please indicate which play you are interested in and attach your resume.  Interviews will be scheduled for mid-December.
 
During this interview, the director should share their vision and ideas about the play as well as its production. We look for directors to have a passion for the play and the characters and the story they tell. In addition, directors must be capable of overseeing all aspects of the show including casting, props, costumes, set decoration, sound, lighting, and arranging for a stage manager.
