Song Contest – the Almost Eurovision Experience is a glitzy comedic and loving tribute to the Eurovision Song Contest. It’s as close to the real thing as you can get, with eleven countries competing, a multitude of anxious contestants, a gushing hostess and all the quirkiness that both delights us and makes us cringe in a single breath. The audience voting is authentic with the potential for a different winner every night (come a couple of times and you will see it’s not rigged.) Love Eurovision or hate it, you will love this show.
Performances will be between August 18 and September 2
Song Contest auditions will be held on Wednesday 3 May at 7pm and on Sunday 7 May at 4pm. We need singers, dancers and actors. Preferably all three (all at the same time) but it is not required. All ages are welcome – so long as you’re over 18.
Could all who wish to audition please be prepared to perform a pop song (this is a Eurovision spoof!) and a backing track is recommended.
We estimate there will be approximately 24.7 cast and crew directly involved in every performance, but if you include the audience (who strictly speaking will be involved in the voting bit) then this will make Song Contest one of the biggest shows the Nowra Players Theatre has ever seen. And that does not include staff from front of house, side of house, on top of house, under the house, house painters, plumbers, electricians, the companies who print the banners/posters/signage/programmes, ticket sales, Lady Tim-Tams, Tim-Tams, maintenance, office staff, advertising, publicity, mechanics, stockbrokers, hairdressers, florists, roadside workers or nurses.
