We’re reyt chuffed to be providing some open mic slots for emerging acts at A Reyt Queer Do 6 on Sunday 12 June. This queer cabaret event, is our belated 5th birthday celebration, and is at Sidney and Matilda in Sheffield city centre.
This event, hosted by scene legend, Sadie Sinner is about platforming emerging queer performance talent. Whether you’re a new act, or you have new work you want to test out in front of a friendly live audience, we’d love to hear from you.
Drag, comedy, clowning, queerlesque, song, anything goes, as long as it will entertain. In return for you performing one 3 – 5 minute act we’ll provide refreshments and up to £50 to reimburse any expenses. You’ll also receive a few photos of you performing shot by a professional photographer. We just need you to be available from 3.30pm on the day of the event.
To apply for one of our open mic slots, please send us
- The name of your act
- Where you are based
- How much experience you have (no experience is fine, but its good to know)
- Your act’s tagline ( if you have one)
- Your act’s bio – this is more relevant for drag, but it should give us an idea of your stage persona, and what’s important to them.
- A 2 – 5 minute video showing us an extract of your act or performance. If there is already a video online of you performing this act somewhere, you can send us the link.
We understand the pandemic means you might not have had any performance opportunities before, so if the video is you sharing your talents at home, thats fine! We’re just looking for people who will entertain our crowd. More information on the access provisions in the venue can be found here.
Send the above info to [email protected]
Deadline to apply: 10am Wednesday 1st June. Priority for slots will go to those based in Yorkshire. We look forward to hearing from you! If you have any questions please drop us a line.
