Location: New Orleans - to be arranged
In the wake of the huge success of the annual fundraiser "It's a Wonderful Life", and in response to several requests to be involved in a further production, The NOLA Voice Talent Foundation has teamed up with Pink Hat Productions to introduce a new concept in performance workshop, for stage and screen performers as well as voice actors: a one-day performance workshop.
The workshop works like this: following advance pre-arranged auditions, the cast and crew assembles in the morning, rehearse throughout the day, and perform the production as a live radio-play in the evening in front of a live audience. Participants receive a recording of the performance.
There are only NINE roles to be filled for this production, so please ensure you book your participation early to ensure you get to audition. Audition for this production workshop is by advance registration only. Workshop fee is only $50 (or $35 for Full Members of The NOLA Voice Talent Foundation).
Auditions are free and will be held in advance for all who pre-register. Workshop fee will be payable only by those who pass the audition (a limited number of spaces are also available at $25 for those who wish to attend without a role).
You can pre-register by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by signing-up at our mid-week workshops. In the meantime, don't forget to register as a member of The NOLA Voice Talent Foundation (it's FREE!) to receive bulletins and updates.
Full membership of The NOLA Voice Talent Foundation is only $125 per annum ($150 from September 1st) and covers the cost of all mid-week workshops in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, as well as providing discounts on weekend workshops and participating suppliers.
But that did not stop an amazing turn-out on Sunday December 8th for a New Orleans holiday tradition which, while not exactly steeped into the culture of the city quite as much as The Saints are, has become etched into the calendar of annual New Orleans' “unmissables” as the Christmas season commences.
