Live Performance and Talent Showcase Auditions
Welcome to auditions for AnthroNW’s very first Showcase! If you’ve got a special talent that you’d like to have the chance to show off at tomorrow’s Showcase, this event is a must!

Maybe you’d like to give a damatic reading? Or show us some magic tricks? Or perhaps you’re just really talented on the Ukelele? 

We’d love to see as many of you as possible take part in the showcase — and you don’t need to be in a fursuit to join in!

PLEASE NOTE: If you wish to perform in tomrrow’s showcase, you MUST attend this session unless you have already arranged special dispensation (and auditioned at an earlier time) with Queenie.

Additionally, in order for your act to be considered, it must adhere to the SFW rules of the convention. Acts with NSFW content will not be allowed to perform.

 if your act includes backing music, please bring it with you in MP3 or WAV format on a memory stick clearly labeled! If you have any special requests (like bringing an instrument which requires amplification) please get in touch with Queenie directly at queenie.deerheart@gmail.com

Vocal Techniques for Costume Performers Workshop
Want to be better heard when you’re talking in costume? Keen to add some vocalisation to your performances? Or just fancy learning how to sing in suit?

Join Queenie Deerhart for this practical workshop where you’ll get a chance to try your hand at speaking or singing in suit, and (if you’re feeling brave) brush up a performacne for the live performance panel right after!

If you’d like to prepare something ahead of time, please do — either prose or song! Or, if you prefer, you can just bring yourself, and read some of the prepared text we’ll have for you!

Please note: If you’d like to sing a song, please bring your backing track as an MP3 or WAV file on a memory stick clearly labeled!
