Capitol Theatre issues call for homegrown talent

Theatre, music, dance, comedy, readings – if you can do it on stage, you can send in a submission

Submitted by The Capitol Theatre

Get on the stage! The Capitol Theatre is excited to announce a wonderful opportunity for local and regional professional and emerging performers.

This time of year the Capitol staff are usually wrapping up the final touches in preparation for the fall season launch that is made up of professional touring artists from all over the world.

This year is going to be different. They are looking for local and regional performers to participate in the brand new upcoming Capitol Theatre Homegrown Season starting in September.

Information and parameters for submissions are as follows:

Live performances will take place on stage in front of a limited audience. They must be one act (approximately one hour in length). Solo acts and up to a maximum of four performers (safe grouping) will be accepted. This call is open to both professional and emerging artists in all genres. All submissions will go through a juried selection process. Artist fees will be negotiated.

Please email a description of your performance to capitolnelsonbc@gmail.com. Images/links to videos can also be submitted. Submission deadline is July 15.

Theatre, music, dance, comedy, readings — if you can do it on our stage, you can send in a submission.

The Capitol is working to develop alternate ways to deliver performance-based culture. They are looking forward to safely sharing all of the talent in our own backyard.
