KCP Theatre Show – AUDITIONS MAY 2024!

Come be a part of a unique opportunity to perform in our community!  KCP presents a musical revue: “Puttin’ On The Glitz” which follows a group of creatives as they embark on the journey of bringing a production to life! From writing to auditions, conflicts and triumphs, to the excitement of opening night, we will perform classic and contemporary showtunes which will be sure to dazzle our audiences. 🎵Let’s entertain 🎵 the community this summer as we tour venues across the Barrie area in an interactive dinner theatre/cabaret style format.

We’re eager to offer this performance opportunity of a smaller-scale that requires less time-commitment and a shorter rehearsal schedule.  Due to the small cast size (8 to 12 members), this show does require a group of performers who are comfortable being featured in solos and duets and are able to do some prep work at home, in addition to scheduled rehearsals. 

This season’s third show is a testament to what KCP is all about: community! Our focus for this show is to give back to the community. Host  venues will be given the opportunity to choose a charity of their choice and any proceeds will go directly to that charity. This style of show also allows us to connect with segments of our community who may or may not yet be familiar with who we are, our mission and the enchantment of live theatre.

 If you’re eager to showcase KCP’s dynamic talent, don your best sequins and join us in making a show that shimmers!
