Neverland is finally getting on the 'Virtual Cabaret' Band Wagon but with a fun twist!
We are looking for 15 Sign-ups of children, teens and adults who want to participate by submitting a video singing or performing an instrument. But what we will do to make it a special event is to edit the videos together and add some snazzy backgrounds and effects so it appears that each musical number is being performed from a different country of the world. So the effect for the viewer is that they are going on a 45 minute long musical trip around the globe.
Since we are all cooped lately, this will be a fun way for your family and friends to watch you perform from the comfort of their home yet feel like they are being whisked away on vacation to exciting locations, tongue-in-cheek !
We are looking for just the right name for the show and are happy to take suggestions.
Read more information below:
How it works:
*Let us know what song you would like to perform.
(We ask that it is no longer than 4 or 5 minutes. Also we do not want to have duplicate songs so we will let you know if that song is taken.)
*You can sign up through January 3.
Once you sign up we can then discuss the following:
*Let us know if you want your performance to pretend to be from any particular county/part of the world.
If you don't have a preference, we will choose an intriguing location. If you do choose a particular location, we encourage you to perhaps wear a hat or costume piece that might give the flavor of the location, such as a beret, etc.
DEADLINE TO SEND VIDEOS: Tuesday, January 5
You can send one long video or shorter video that include any of the following:
- Your performance (4 - 5 minutes in length)
The following are optional but we encourage you to submit as many as you like:
30 Second Snippets of: (Close ups are preferred)
- An introduction telling us whatever you like about yourself. (And if you like you can dedicate your performance to somebody.)
- Bowing / curtseying / being silly
- Free-style dancing in place. Music doesn't matter (or no music) as it will be spliced together with the other performers set to some particular music we will choose later.
- Joking around with your pet if you have one. (And let us know in writing what is your pet's name.)
- Your family waving/ dancing around / acting silly together. (Be sure to tell us their names.)
Andy will use Adobe Premiere Pro to edit together the videos into one production. Our goal is to have the final product late February. We will post the video online and encourage friends and supporters who are watching to make a small donation to help support Neverland Theatre.
And the video will be a fun remembrance to have for years to come!
