We extend good wishes to all of you for a healthy, Happy New Year and to share with you our latest project. In an effort to keep theatre alive while our traditional theatre is closed, this February, in honor of Valentine’s Day, we will be offering a virtual performance. We are sending this invitation for you to audition for the Newtown Arts Company performance entitled Art from the Heart. Instructions for video submissions, a timeline, performance suggestions and all guidelines are listed below.
We hope you will consider joining us!
Hilary Appel, Chrissy Breeman, & Diana Bilyk
1) Newtown Arts Company will be accepting auditions via video submission. When planning your performance, we are asking for the following:
a) Song: You may sing 16-32 bars of the song you wish to sing for the performance
b) Poetry: A complete reading of the selected poem you wish to perform
c) Dance: Up to 1 minute of dance with chosen song to be performed

*Full video submissions will NOT be the ones used for the event. You will be asked to send an updated video if chosen for the performance*
For identification, please hold up a piece of paper or whiteboard with your name, email, and phone number at the start of your video. We ask that you zip your video files if possible
Embrace this opportunity to perform a piece that you have always wanted to do!
2) Once members are cast, you will be notified and asked to perform your selection via submitted video. All videos are requested by Saturday, January 30th, 2021
3) Following this process, all cast members will be asked to participate in a virtual performance combining your voices in song. This will be done in virtual format. Once cast, more information will be provided and fingers crossed that we can make this happen!
