Come join the Rossland Light Opera Players for Member Nights! Starting in September 2018, the RLOP will host monthly evenings for members to learn, participate and have fun with our featured artists, performers or instructors. Each evening will focus on and celebrate one of the many facets of musical and contemporary theatre. Don’t worry if you are not yet a member – we have a variety of membership levels and are always happy to have new members join us!
Calling All Artists…!
Do have a passion for music, theatre or art? Or knowledge about performing arts that you would like to share in a fun and interesting way? Can you prepare a two-hour evening workshop curriculum that will engage RLOP members and encourage them to try something new? Then we would LOVE to hear from you!
The RLOP is looking for local artists, musicians, performers and instructors to lead our Member Nights. If you have an idea for an evening that would encourage our members to expand their performing arts skills, try something new, or simply come out to be entertained, we invite you to submit a proposal.
We are currently accepting proposals for our fall ‘18 and winter ‘19 program. The deadline for applications is July 30th, 2018 at 5pm. All groups and individuals are welcome to apply. Below are further guidelines for the proposals.
What type of event are we looking for?
Member Nights are typically 2 – 2 ½ hours long. The content of your workshop is really up to you, as long as it is related to performing arts in some way. Below are some examples of member nights that we have held in the past or think would be lots of fun:
– Shakespeare Appreciation
– Start Singing Again – Singing for beginners
– Improv class
– Theatre Games
– Open Mic night
– Classical Music for Instrumentalists
– Flash Mob organization and implementation
– Character Development
– Movement & Dance
– Sound Poetry
Below is a complete list of the required documents for each application. ONLY applications that have ALL the required documents will be assessed by our Engagement Committee. Please ensure that you have included the following in your proposal:
Short bio: In 250 words or less, tell us about yourself and why you would be a great host for one of our Member Nights.
Show/Workshop Concept: In 250 words or less, tell us what you plan to perform or how you will engage with our members for the 2 – 2 ½ hour time frame. What makes your performance great? What are the objectives you hope to meet through your workshop?
Resume: Your professional resume. Nothing fancy, brass tacks.
Supporting Material: Up to ten images (.jpg format) or 5 Minutes of video (.MP4 format) that supports your proposal and/or shows your work in its best light.
The budget for each evening is up to $200.00. Proposals with budgets of more than $200.00 may be considered, but our budget for the fall/winter season is limited.
Each person / group may submit up to four (4) proposals for consideration.
