From a Distance - Show Overview
This show is a musical review of songs sung mostly from fire escapes, mountain tops, large rocks, balconies, and rooftops. The cast includes a wide variety of performers who are children, young adults, and adults of all ages. These songs are mostly declarations of love and life.
There will be two characters (male or female) sitting up in their own balcony opera box, their personalities fashioned after Statler and Waldorf of the Muppets. They will be the glue that binds our show together, commenting all the while as the show moves along.
Please, if you would like to be considered for their part in the show, write this down (plus your “partner”) on your audition form. Please note they will sing one short song of their own, but will not be able to participate in any of the other musical performances.
I am excited to have this opportunity to be the director for this streaming project created by myself and a small team. Chris and I look forward to seeing your audition tapes! We have a short timeline, but it will be packed full of fun, talent, creativity, AND the satisfaction of coming together to build a very entertaining piece of musical theatre!

PARENT/GUARDIAN COMMITMENT - I understand that if my child is chosen as part of a KCP production; it is a commitment and I have discussed this with my child. I understand and agree that, to the best of our ability, our family will strive to keep each rehearsal date, along with any other publicity date listed on the calendar, open and free to attend, and to arrive and be picked up on time. I agree that extra-curricular activities such as vocal, dance, music lessons etc will be scheduled at times that will not cross over rehearsal time. I agree to discuss with the Producer immediately if any illness or conflicts arise, and that the Producer, within reason, and in consultation with the rest of the Creative Team, have the right to ask the child to withdraw from participating in the show. I understand that there is a membership fee, and I agree that we will strive to pay the membership fee in full by August 15th or discuss payment arrangements with the Producer. I understand and agree that by committing to participate in this production, my child’s name and/or photo/video may be used for publicity purposes, including, but not limited to, newspapers, the internet/social media or on television, and not limited to this production, but may be used for Kempenfelt Community Players promotional material as well, both now and in the future. I understand that each family is expected to aid in preparations of the show and that we will strive to put in approximately ten (10) hours volunteer time pre-production. I agree to do my part in promoting both this show and the remaining KCP season and ensuring this a great experience for all individuals and families involved.
