Auditions: April 11, 2019
Are you curious and excited to create in a collaborative way? The Tita Collective is holding auditions to find someone to join our barkada for Tita Jokes at the 2019 Toronto Fringe Festival. Rehearsals will begin late April, continuing through May to the start of the festival. The Festival runs from July 3-14, 2019.
WHAT IS TITA JOKES?
Tita Jokes is a Filipinx-focused musical sketch comedy revue that revolves around the womxn in our lives like our aunts, moms, daughters, and partners. We will get to see their struggles and heartaches, but also how they cope through comedy and songs. This show had a sold-out run at the John Candy Box Theatre at Second City, and was awarded the Steam Whistle's Producers’ Pick at the 2019 Toronto Sketch Fest. It was also a recipient of the Sketch Comedy Project Fund, a project of the Pat and Tony Adams Freedom Fund for the Arts.
WHAT WILL THE AUDITION BE LIKE?
For the audition please prepare:
-Your favourite story. It could be fictional, it could a memory or a personal experience, as long as it yours!
-Your go-to karaoke song (16-32 bars). Acapella. If you can play an instrument (i.e. guitar, ukelele) feel free to bring it!
