November is festival time in Adelaide again: Feast Festival! Therefore, we at Broadway Sessions felt this was a great time of year to celebrate the LGBTQI+ community. Can you think better way of doing this than with a night of Broadway tunes? Though honestly, there’s no better way to celebrate literally anything than with a night of Broadway tunes. It’s not about stereotypes people, it’s just a fact.
What does this mean for registrations?
Think of anything that is not heteronormative. No boy meets girl or vice versa. Instead, consider the myriad (Myriad? Nice.) of songs and duets that sing to the emotions/stories/complexities of the LGBTQI+ experience. Other options could be gender swapping traditionally heteronormative roles, or honouring LGBTQI composers and writers by choosing works from their catalogue. Want to sing a song about being an amazing ally? Brilliant! Songs that celebrate inclusivity, support and generally loving each other for who we are also encouraged!
Love is love, and that’s something to celebrate!
Doors open at 5:45pm. Food and beverages are available from the bar.
Pre-purchase single tickets and tables today to secure your spot. Tickets remain available online until 15 minutes before doors. Any remaining tickets will be available at the door.
For the opportunity to perform, visit our registration page and submit two song options (from a musical or by an established music theatre writer) to be part of the fun. Registrations open at 9pm on Sunday 27 October and close on Sunday 10 November.
