Title of Show: Beautiful City: A Community Cabaret
Synopsis: “Beautiful City: A Community Cabaret” will feature a collection of 18-20 singers presenting songs from screen and stage that personally resonate with them. We will build a beautiful city through our community vocalists’ interpretations of well-loved and reimagined tunes ranging in style and genre. We will raise our voices and continue to fulfill SBCT’s mission of being a light to illuminate the darkness.

Singers will be responsible for providing sheet music for piano for chosen song; please consider this as you make your song selection. All final recordings will be accompanied by piano (accompanist provided), no backing tracks.
Singers will be responsible for working on/learning their music on their own.
Singers will be responsible for creation of an introduction for their piece (hence the preliminary intro required for the audition).
There may be an opportunity to borrow costume pieces from the theater to enhance final recordings.
Singers will share space with piano accompanist, film crew, and director while recording (all masked). The only exception for mask wearing will be while singing.
