The audition call is out for talents and tricks of all types for the first annual Fall Fair Follies – Variety Show to be held Friday Oct. 3 as part of Cumberland’s Foggy Mountain Fall Fair.
Both experienced and amateur thespians, musicians, dancers and unique performers are all welcome to bring forward a short performance of your choosing to be part of this exciting first annual event! Songs, dance, sword fighting, monologues, unicycles, hula hoops, skits, juggling, comedy, poetry, burlesque, contortions – you name it – the Fall Fair Follies welcomes it. Be risky, be adventurous, be cheeky, the event is PG 13.
Follies are a rich theatrical tradition featuring short performances of diverse talent threaded together with a back stage/side stage story line (think Muppet Show). All you need to do is show up for the auditions with your talent in tow and the magic happens with the support of director Kevin Flesher. Be prepared for a jam-packed, fun-filled show.
Auditions will be held at Cumberland United Church, Monday Sept. 22, from 6-9 p.m.
