So it's really obvious that we're HUGE Sara Bareilles fans around here. She was a major inspiration for our show, as the lyrics of BRAVE spoke to our hearts and have reinforced the importance of talking openly about ALL of the parts of us, not just the parts people can see every day. The world needs to know where we've been in order to understand our struggles and the challenges we face on a day to day basis. When we come together and raise our voices we will be heard.
Speaking of being heard, two days ago Anne Marie and I wrapped up the final round of auditions for our cast hopefuls. We were so impressed - blown away, really - with the level of vulnerability these brave individuals delivered in the poetry, music and essays we had the honor of hearing. We truly wish we had enough time in the show to be able to cast them all, they each deserve a spot in This Is My Brave.
We'll be posting our cast announcement soon, but in the meantime we wanted to announce the next item on our agenda: finding musical talent to perform Sara's song BRAVE to open the show. On Saturday, April 26th we will be holding auditions to select a musician or group (both are welcome to try-out) to kick off the debut performance of This Is My Brave.
- Audition Date: Saturday, April 26th; Location: Ashburn (exact location TBD)...If you are unable to make the audition date, but ARE available for the show weekend (see next bullet), please let us know and we can arrange for another day/time for the audition
- Selected talent MUST be available for Rehearsal (Saturday, May 17th) AND show day (Sunday, May 18th)
- Must provide your own instruments or accompaniment
To request a music audition for BRAVE, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org today! Please share this post with anyone you know who you think would do an awesome cover of Sara's song. We'd love to meet them!! Thanks so much!
PS. If you know someone who might be interested in becoming a Platinum, Silver, or Gold sponsor of the show, or someone who would like to place an ad in our show program, please email Jenn at email@example.com for more details. Thank you so much for your continued support!
