A showcase of original songs by new musical theatre and cabaret composers and lyricists is being planned to coincide with the activities of the Dramatists Guild's 2nd National Playwright’s Conference the weekend of August 22 -25, 2013 in Chicago.

The showcase will be a cabaret-style evening in a nightclub (tbd) and is sure to be a fun, exciting, creative way to socialize with other theatre artists, meet local talent and producers, and enhance your Chicago experience if you are attending the conference!

While this event is being created and produced by two DG members (who will themselves be attending the conference), please understand that it is entirely independent of the Dramatists Guild and the official conference activities. The Guild is in no way sponsoring, underwriting, or adjudicating participation.  However, they are making every effort to cooperate and coordinate to avoid scheduling conflicts and be encouraging and supportive of this member-driven project.

To submit please send an mp3 and lyric sheet (and brief explanation of dramatic context if relevant) to both Hillary Rollins at hillaryrollinscabaraise@gmail.com and Larry Todd Johnson at ltj@larrytoddjohnson.com by June 23, 2013.  Electronic submissions only.

Recordings do NOT have to be professional demo quality.  Include your name, all contact info, and what days you’ll be attending the conference.  Up to three (3) songs may be submitted for consideration but there will only be one (1) song per writer or writing team performed at the event.  Please let us know if you will require a pianist and/or singer(s) or will be playing/performing your own material.  (Either is an option but the only instrumentation provided will be acoustic piano.)  While we hope to accommodate as much material as possible, please understand that the final decision for inclusion in the showcase is at the sole discretion of the producers.  You will receive email notification of receipt of submission and decisions will be made by July 15th.  No pay.  No fee to apply.
