What: Auditions for PPF Winter Show: Winter – A Season of Entertainment and Inspiration When: August 14-16, 2020 Where: Online How: Click HERE to sign up!
August is here, so that means it’s PPF winter show audition season – yayyyyy!!! This year’s winter performances will be virtual. There will be multiple performances of pre-recorded videos created by YOU, all put together by our amazing tech team. You will need to sign up for a one-hour Zoom audition slot using the link above and prepare a song, dance, poem, or monologue that you would like to perform in our virtual shows. It should be something that speaks to the theme of the show: Winter – A Season of Entertainment and Inspiration. Because the auditions are virtual, you will need to have a recording of your music available on your computer to back you up. If you want to audition with a friend, please sign up for the same time slot!
There are three categories of performer:
1) Cast Member (High school age and below). After you audition, the production crew will determine the absolute best place for you in our shows. They might get to sing a solo or duet, or be part of a group number, or be backup for one of our featured performers or headliners! Note: there is a nominal $100 participation fee for cast members, and that includes a T-shirt, video backdrop, and the temporary use of our really cool “tech boxes” (containing an awesome camera, ring-light, and camera stand), rehearsals all throughout the winter season, and a guaranteed slot in at least one of our virtual performances!
2) Featured Performer (College age through adult). College students and non-professional adult performers can audition for a spot as a featured performer. Note that, unlike our cast members, not everyone will be selected for a featured spot. But don’t worry, even if you don’t receive a featured role, you can still take part as a paying cast member!
3) Headliner (Adult professional performers). Each performance will include a guest headliner that has worked professionally in the Bay Area, on National Tours, and on Broadway! That means that cast members and featured performers get to perform (virtually) with these incredible artists! Word has it that at least some of them will be joining some of the rehearsals to work with you personally.

Note for cast members: while there is a participation fee of $100 to help the PPF cover the costs of staff, T shirts, backdrops, and equipment, we want EVERYONE to have a chance to be a part of the magic of the Peter Pan Foundation this winter season. If the participation fee would stop you from being a part, please email email@example.com to talk about scholarship opportunities.
Please let us know if you have any questions, and feel free to pass the word far and wide! One benefit of having virtual rehearsals and performances is it gives us the opportunity to welcome even more people into the PPF family!
Love and Light, The Peter Pan Foundation
